Walterfall Mini Album or Booklet

shown here by Donna Ellis as inspired by Kelly Gettelfinger.

ÔĽŅfrom the SNS Amazingly-Fancy Folds Blog Hop January 2013

I know what you're thinking -- "that doesn't look so fancy"  but I promise it's a bit fancy.

It all started with Kelly Gettelfinger's YouTube video creating something she called a "Waterfall Mini Album".

Her album looked like it would make an interesting "card-booklet".

Start with one piece of

12" x 12" cardstock

For a complete tutorial in creating this card/album base, 

see Kelly's video, or blog 

The booklet/mini album can be designed very simply, or with more intricate embellishments.

Either way, it is fun to make!

The folded card booklet measures 3" x 4".

Let's untie it.

The spine on this embellished version is 1/2"

Turn the first "accordion folded" page.

The accordion folds are what create the "waterfall" feature.

Below are columns 1 and 2, still folded up.


Pull down on the first column and see the strip facing the front cover:

Top Panel of Column 1 

Panel is dry embossed and brushed with 

Lavender Pearlescent Brilliance Ink

Butterfly enhanced with Eggplant Glitter:

Center Panel of Column 1 

Photo Corners also with Eggplant Glitter:

Bottom Panel of Column 1:

Pearl Stickers had the tacky adhesive which shows through.

Tip: Sprinkle glitter on top of your rhinestone and pearl stickers 

to cover the clear adhesive between jewels.

Turn the now-opened Column One to the back side:

Back Side of Column 1 revealed 


Closed front of Column 2 shown:

Top of Back Side of Column 1:

Tip: Staz-on inks actually look more vibrant when stamped on top of Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter.

Middle Panel of Back Side of Column 1:

Circle behind Eggplant Glitter Circle is embellished with Parisian Mist Glitter.

The green photo corners were covered with transparent Starfire glitter.

Bottom Panel of Back Side of Column 1

Starfire Glitter on edges, Cloud Nine under inked sentiment:

Pull down the Waterfall feature for Column Two:

Front Top for Column Two

Parisian Mist glitter in adhesive behind lace and on the adhesive of

the pearl flourish sticker:

Middle Panel for Column Two

Transparent Starfire Glitter on edge of hummer panel:

Bottom Panel for Column Two:

This is the back side of Column Two, which is also the back side of the Waterfall Booklet.

Have fun designing an album or booklet of your own. They may be as simple or "fancy".
