Video Tutorial | Making the “love you more” Mini Book | by ForeverJoy

No design has ever generated as much fan mail as the love you more” collection– and there were so many requests for a Mini Book (just in time for Mother’s day!) that I had to hit the drawing board with this design one more time! 
Making the Mini Book is as simple as printing 3 sheets of pages on your favorite 8.5 x 11 card stock or photo paper, cutting a few strips, folding them up and then gluing them all together.  You can choose to add your photos and pretties in your photo editing program before you print it out- or go old school and glue it all down after the main pages are printed! you don’t even need a photo editing program, since all files and directions also come in PDF format. Not that I’m encouraging anyone to print and scrap on work time- but um… the temptation could be satisfied is all I’m sayin’!
I made a book as a Mothers Day gift for me! and filmed a  quick Tutorial Video to walk you through the assembly steps on my YouTube Channel. ( If you are not yet a subscriber- I encourage you to hit that “subscribe” button so you will never miss a video release. Also- it feels nice to be loved!  ) 


what joy will you create today?

Crafting the JOY and “meh” of Winter

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. Come November 1 after all the pumpkin spice palooza- I can’t wait to cozy things up with knits and layers and all things comfy-cozy, and then comes the magic of the holidays, the thrill of the first snow and the delight of slow cooked dinners and nights by […]

The Joy of Challenges

After the holidays where we give so much of ourselves to others, January gives us a welcome chance to look inward and see how we can refill our own buckets.  It’s also the time of year at the Lilypad when we host a “Month of Challenges”  where each day a different memory keeping challenge is […]

Jump start your layouts | looking backwards

It’s been said that photographs are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I love that thought. Because, if we can return to a time- then it’s never really lost is it? Not to us, or to anyone who can see and read and feel what that image means to us. We can tell […]
