Tri_Fold Shutter Photo Display + Video



Long time, no see!  I've been spending my weekends with Louisa again and last weekend we had her mommy and daddy, too.  We had a one-child Easter egg hunt - which was the most fun ever!  



The Easter egg hunt brought back a lot of wonderful memories.  Lauren's birthday is in April and many times we had an Easter egg hunt for her birthday party. 



I took a lot of cute pictures of Louisa and had been thinking about a Tri-Fold card, so I just put the two things together.  I've done a video (you can see it below).  Of course, I had to change it up a little!



Why is this called a Tri-Fold Shutter Card?  I understand the Tri-Fold - there are three strips of folds.  But what does the shutter part mean? 

Instead of leaving mine a standard Tri-Fold, I changed up my middle strip of folds.  You can see how to do it in the video.

True Story:  I've been buying my Copic refills and a few new Copic Sketch markers from Scrapbook Pal.  They've got great prices and I just found out that they have GREAT customer service, too.  I placed an order last week and a little while later, received a text from them asking if I meant to buy an Original marker.  




Well, No!  I meant to buy a refill.  But seriously, have you ever had a company check with you to see if you ordered the right thing?  I'm so impressed.  They realized that I always order Sketch Markers.  I texted back and they took care of it all!

How cool is that?  I just had to tell you that story.  (I'm not getting any kickbacks, but I just wanted to share my experience in case you are looking for a place to buy copics.)  



So glad you stopped by!

  2. Oooohhhh.... :) Amazing photos, Easter egg hunt and tri-fold album!!! How many love in all that!! :) In Italy Easter egg hunt there isn't, but I think this is such a shame! :)
    Louisa seems so serious, perhaps she worried not to find all the eggs :D How adorable face!
    The cover of the album is super cute, LOVE that bunny! And also the inside looks so sweet and lovely! You have had a fabulous idea to keep your memories with Louisa and your daughter!
    Big hugs!!

  5. That is too cute, neat idea to make it into a little album, I made one of those before but as a card, like this idea for a little mini album for a day activity. Louisa is so cute, that is neat you were able to spend the day with her and her parents of course :)

  10. This is really cool, Lori! I love how many photos you were able to include as well as those adorable bunnies, yet it folds up to be so compact! Louisa looks so grown-up now! Wow, she's growing fast! She was sure having fun looking for those eggs!
