Tri-Shutter Mini Album

I made this Tri-Shutter Mini Album for my parents for Valentine's Day, but I left it pretty generic so they can leave it out all year if they want to. Mom likes to have photos of her grandkids at her desk, maybe this accordian-style album will fit the bill! I tacked the photos on with removeable adhesive so she can update the photos if she wants to each year.

I used all CTMH products, That's Amore paper pack, various stamp sets, and handmade paper flowers.
I apologize for the washed out pictures, I was having lighting difficulties! It is really more vibrant, and what looks like plain paper is actually a linen texture and print.

Here is the entire album opened:

Close up of left side: (this is my family)

Close up of right side: (my sisters, BIL and niece and nephew)

The first one I made took a while, but this is the second one I've done and it came together pretty quickly.
If you'd like to try one for yourself, the tutorial for this project can be found here .

I hope my parents like it, I'm giving it to them when we go out for supper tonight.


  1. Once again, we are all saved by your thoughfulness. What a fab valentine's gift. Mom & Dad will love it.

  2. This is gorgeous. I love it. Thanks for the link as to where to find the tutorial. I can't wait to try one.

  3. Yes the mom & dad absolutely love it and will treasure it always. Since the photos can be removed easily I will replace photos as time passes. It is now sitting on the windowsill in my computer room and see it many times a day.
