  1. Make two marks on the top of the frame approximately 3/4″ in on each side.  The marks need to be approx. 1/2″ down from the top of the frame.  (If the holes go down too far the pages won’t flip correctly.)  Drill two holes in the top of the frame with a 3/16″ drill bit.
  2. For the mini album cover…Adhere a 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ scrapbook paper strip onto the top of the corrugated paper leaving a 1/8″ margin on the top.  Adhere the 3″ x 4″ journaling card (cut from the scrapbook paper) onto a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of blue scrapbook paper layer, add those layers onto the corrugated paper and then onto a 4″ x 6″ black cardstock layer.
  3. Using the drilled holes on the craft frame as a guide, mark the cover and the kraft cardstock pages and punch two holes on the top.
  4. Mark and punch holes into a piece of 4″ x 6″ decorative scrapbook paper and insert into frame.
  5. Attach cover and pages to the craft frame with book rings.
  6. Tie ivory ribbon around cover.

Bon Voyage Vacation Album with Canvas Corp Brands

Sue Eldred's Canvas Corp Brands Bon Voyage Album 6195

My Vacation Bon Voyage album uses a lot of fun papers and embellishments from

Canvas Corp Brands Bon Voyage Collection.  The album was made using the Banner Board Kit

covered with various scrapbook paper.

Sue Eldred's Canvas Corp Brands Bon Voyage Album Close Up 6221

To make “Our Vacation” stand out, I glued the words from the scrapbook paper onto a piece of chipboard and cut around the oval.  I used black ink around the edges of the chipboard.  I did the same with the “Carte Postale”.   This gives the album dimension and added interest.

I love using the Paris Charms and simply tied the Eiffel Tower (with added jump ring) onto the ribbon.

I created an extra page for the book using a black fluted paper and cardstock.  I decorated the page with additional paper, cut outs and a cute little 3″ x 3″ cream envelope.  The bathing beauty comes from the American Vintage: Vintage Photo’s pack.

Little Black Dress Mixable Medley Album

Clear Scraps LBD new album

When it comes to scrapbooking, I have a lot of stuff.

I have so much stuff… I should never buy another sheet of scrapbook paper.  (but I will )

I love paper.  I love pretty patterns.  I love mini albums.  (so much to love)

Lately, I’ve been on a quest to use more of the stuff I have on hand.

So, when it came to making this Mixable Medley Album for Clear Scraps, I pulled

from one of my favorite collections, the “Little Black Dress” collection from Basic Grey.

The album also uses Clear Scraps New Oval Fancy Mirror Frame.

To make the mirror stand out and give the album a vintage feel, I sponged “Spiced Chai”

Stazon Ink onto the back of the acrylic cover leaving the center of the mirror clear.

Home Sweet Home

House Mixable 1580

A quick share today to show you the Mini Album I made using Clear Scraps New Mixable Home Album.

My “Home Sweet Home” album is a 8″ x 9″ Acrylic & Chipboard mixed Album.

I used chipboard stickers from My Mind’s Eye “Sweetest Thing” collection and various scrapbook papers

to decorate my album.

My favorite part of the album is the fence.

I love the look of a white picket fence so I sprayed the clear acrylic with white spray

paint.  Now I have a white picket fence.

“Love with all my heart”

Deflecto Mini Album 1557

I was supposed to be crawling into bed last night, when inspiration struck.

Happens to me all the time.   Does that ever happen to you?

So….In about a 1/2 hour time, I whipped up this cute little Mini Album using a couple of

Flexible Pouches from Deflecto Craft Solutions.

These pouches made the perfect cover for my mini album.

I used two pouches for my cover and inserted older left over Valentine scrapbook paper from

Authentique Paper.  I cut several inside pages and bound it together with my Bind It All and 1/2″ coil.

Fun, Simple and Cute.  (if I say so myself)

Wedding Day Brag Book

Our Wedding Day Brag Book

Overwhelmed by all the Wedding Pages you need to scrap?

The Wedding Brag book is a perfect way to show off a few of your favorite Wedding photos until you get that larger book finished.

The Wedding Brag Book would also make a perfect gift for your favorite Mother or Mother-in-law.

For my Wedding Brag Book I used the 6″ x 6″ Chipboard 3 Tabbed Album  from Clear Scraps and

The “Story of Us” Collection from Simple Stories.

Wedding Album inside

I love these sturdy chipboard books.  When I use these books, I can easily trim around the edges with a craft knife and smooth any rough paper edges with a sanding block.

To spice up boring silver book rings, I painted each ring with a gold metallic paint pen.

Every Love Story...

Tip:  Being a frugal scrapper, I used the 1/2″ strip at the bottom of most scrapbook paper to cover the tab.  Start with that edge and cut your paper 6″ x 6 1/2″ and include that strip for the perfect tab.

Have a Creative Day!
