Tri-Shutter Memory Keeper

The tri-shutter card concept has been around for years. This fancy album steps up that concept into a beautiful (and totally giftable) memory keeper. It looks a little daunting, but once you’ve finished the cutting for the first time, it’s easy to replicate for any occasion—depending on your choice of Designer Series Paper. 

Actually, this album concept has also been around for years (originally by Andrea Walford). Because of its popularity, I’ve taught several classes on it and made a few as gifts—but most significantly (and the reason I bring it up)— is that I’ve made one for each of my children to house their birth stories. And . . . we have another on the way!

Here are our three standing albums to give you an idea! (Bit of a Stampin’ Up! blast from the past, huh?)



And here’s the one I’ve prepared for our next bundle of joy. How beautiful our new English Garden Designer Series Papers (item # 138440) are!



Much Love,

    Looks very interesting. I gave my husband a card the folded for Valentines day which was his birthday. On each panel I put a special saying.

    Hi Rone - not at this stage. But if you have the Stampin' Up! trimmer is has the great advantage of having both metric and imperial. Hope you give it a try :)
