Cards and Envelope Mini Album Videos

I have wanted to post this for so long already, I'm glad time has finally been on my side the last couple of weeks, so I could get it done. One thing about making these videos is that I think it's time to upgrade my video camera that my brother so generously gave us for Christmas one year, it has come in so handy. It's too bad that technology moves faster than I do, or I would be totally content using this camera. But it's taking longer and longer to get the video off of it and as other programs improve, the camera I have seems to get worse :(

I've made this video so you can make it along with me, you can just pause in between to catch up. The supplies you'll need are listed below. It helps if you pre-cut  all your paper before hand. This book comes together really fast.

For personal use only please

Supplies you'll need if you want to follow along:
1-pkg of 6 cards and envelopes (I used Kaiser Craft)
(if you are using different cards and envelopes just cut your pages 1/4" smaller than the card face or folded envelope)

24- 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" pattern paper  
20- 4 1/4" x 3" pattern paper
6- 3 3/4" x 3" pattern paper for pockets (or width of your card paper x 3")
10- 4 3/4" x 2 1/2" tags( I used Ranger's #5 tags)
6- 6 1/4" x 3" tags ( I used the Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate Die from Sizzix)
10- 1" strips cut from one of the envelopes
1- 2 3/4" x 5 7/8" cardstock scored at 1" and 1 3/4" (or the length of your cards x 2 3/4")

Thanks for watching!
