Good Morning Folks
I have been hard at work both with school stuff and paper crafting.
I came across this new book technique that I thought was just awesome!!
I have really been into mini books lately!!
Hero Arts has a video on how to actually make the book that I am about to show you. Shari Carroll over at Hero Arts is so creative...check it out here.
Here is my version of Shari Carroll's design
This is available in a kit folks!
I have packaged all the goodies up for you along with the book already made!! Call Wholly Scrap for yours!!
Here are all the inside pages with a few directions. It is pretty self explanatory, but if you have any questions e-mail me and I will do the best I can to clarify what I did.
Stickers, ribbon and chip board make up these first two pages. It is tough to get a clear page to work from front to back so I glued the square with round hole chipboard on the front of the dotted acetate and then layered the matching chipboard piece on the backside. The flower works the same way, I put one on the front of the acetate and then one on the other side of the acetate to cover up the glue dot. Stickers adorn the brown page.
These are the next two pages.
If you watch Shari's video you will see how the pockets get made and how to thread the ribbon. The ribbon threads through the spine hole all around the page and then knotted. I suggest you go through the book and do all the ribbon parts first!! I used the brown scallop ribbon to finish the top of the pocket off be sure not to glue the pocket down.
Here are the tags pulled out for you to see. The tags got chip board pieces, and flowers. The flowers are layered and stapled in the center which gets covered by a gem. You must cut the lined paper 5x61/4 and add a sticker to the top. The other side has two calender pieces that come in your kit.I added stickers and a ribbon tab. Do not forget to add the ribbon tabs to the tags.
Here are the next pages.
Glue the white envelope to one side and add the chipboard circle. The other side get another chip board piece, gems and a sticker.
Hopefully you have done all the ribbon threading. Add lace to the top of the left pocket. Cut more of your lined paper 5x61/4 add stickers and a lace tab. The other pocket gets more calendar pieces. Add a flower and a sticker tab. I like to staple the sticker tabs (they tend to un-glue after a few days).
I stapled a tab to the edge (you may need to trim it), this comes with the calendar pieces. I added these edge tabs throughout the book.
Add your scallop ribbon and make your tags.
I pulled the calender pieces out for you to see how I got them to be staggered in the pocket. I added paper to the backs to make them longer. You will have extra paper in your kits so you can do this. The brown piece measure 31/2x61/4, the green piece 31/2x5. Be sure to staple the sticker tabs.
I hope you enjoyed this album!!!
