One Little Word 2015: THE COMPLETE ALBUM

Years from now, I will look back to 2015 One Little Word. The word that changes me forever. It was a roller-coaster ride that tests my patience and faith. I didn't like it but hell, I did learn a lot of things about myself, my marriage, our family, friendship, and work. A tiny word that turns me into someone else I never expect. I was blown away and at one point, I thought I'm going to plummet into sadness but this tiny word is also the one that uplifts my spirit. Such a powerful word.

This is not the album I envision at the end of the year but it was better than I expected. 

Most of the journaling cards I used came from the Project Life Kraft Edition

First, I copy/paste all my one little word blog post to the word document then print. I used my Martha Stewart Crafts - Scoring Board to create a scoring line as a cutting guide but as you can see, I still messed it up. 

I miscalculated the space needed for my printed journaling to fit in my cards so, I improvised. I folded the paper in half and add a tab.

The tab above, I used manila craft tag, Switchboard Collection - Ephemera and Crochet Thread

The lovely paper clip is currently available in our shop, Ordinary Days clear stamp by Ali Edwards and the "you are my favorite memory" c came from Switchboard Collection - Chipboard Stickers

The "rain rain go away come again another day chipboard sticker" is by Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Collection - Chipboard Stickers

Without a doubt, my favorite thickers is Patchwork by American Crafts

For binding, there are several options:
  • Sewing-I personally love this technique but there's no way I could sew the journaling cards side by side. 
  • Gluing-just like sewing, there's no way I could glue them side by side. 
  • Binder rings-the mini album is too thin for a binder ring. 
  • Elastic band/Rubber band-the best and only option I have and I love it. The gold rubber band match the overall color theme of my mini album. 
At the back of the cover page, I added my reason and why

This is going to be one of my favorite mini book. EVER. 


  1. This is beautiful tracy. I hope i could make my own one little word mini album for next year. Need to include this project for next year. Thanks for sharing & inspiring me. ��
