Scrapbook Monday-And now for something completely different...
Hello all! No, this post is not about Spam, dead parrots, or any other Python related material! But it is completely different from anything I've ever done with scrapbooking before. I made my own mini flip albums. These were inspired from Sarah-Jane's creation and also Lucia. Sarah-Jane had the coolest way to make an album using one 12x12 piece of card stock and Lucia is always making her own journals and notepads. Our childcare center just had a benefit auction and I made 4 mini albums; one for each season. I kept these very uncluttered and simple because I had no clue who would receive them and what pictures would be placed in them.
It was so fun to make these and really simple! Just score a 12x12 page at the 6" mark, turn 90* and score at 6" again. Then cut on one of the score lines to the center of the paper. Fold the other lines and you are done! I did end up trimming a little extra off of the scored line just so the album would fold and close nicely. Sarah-Jane has a great tutorial on her site if you need more specifics or pictures.
This is the spring album. Paper and embellishments from my stash...
and the inside... These flaps lift up to reveal 4 other pages. All of the pages were very similar so I didn't take pics of all of the pages.
This is the summer version. Paper and title piece are from my stash. I stamped some butterflies on the cardstock to add a little interest.
On the inside, I stamped and punched out several butterflies to make a simple border.
I will post the fall and winter albums later. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and in case I haven't mentioned it in the past hour... I'm on Spring Break next week!!!! (Can you feel my excitement?!) Happy Monday!!
