Crazy Cat Lady Mini Album Tutorial Series + Cutting Guide


Welcome! I'm happy to share that ALL of the tutorial videos including the showcase walk through video for this Crazy Cat Lady Mini Album are in a playlist on YouTube AND each video should have a link to the next video at the end of the credits.  This is to help you navigate from one video to the next easily.  There are 5 videos total for this tutorial series.  They are also all in a Playlist on my channel that you can bookmark and save to have them all together in one place.  Here's the link to the Playlist:


The cutting measurements are given on the video screen for the chipboard and cardstock needed for the pages, pockets & flaps.  I do not give out measurements for patterning and it is better for you to measure and pattern for how you want your pages to look.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here on my blog or by leaving a comment on the video where you have a question.

Copy and Paste the following Cutting Guide into a document on your computer or highlight and print.  Disclaimer: The following cutting guide is typed from my written notes and may have typing errors or omissions.  Please let me know if you notice any and always check the video tutorials for verbal instructions and to double check the measurements given below.
