Mini Accordeon Scrapbook

Here’s the last of my project with the “I Am Me ” suite! To see the other ones, click here (projects chosen by the Scrapbook and Card Today magazine blog) or scroll down!

A mini Scrapbook can be a great gift for the grand-parents! It’s also a compact way to bring some pictures of your recent trip to show to your friends and family.  I used the “I Am Me” suite to create this cute mini Scrapbook.

Here’s the top when it’s closed and attached with the ribbon:

To make this mini-accordion Scrapbook, I cut a 12″ x 12″ Basic Gray card stock sheet in 3 strips of 4″ each. I scored at 4″ and 8″ on all of the 3 strips. Then, I glued them together to make one big line, superposing the 4″ x4″ square. I fold them in an accordion manner. I cut a scalloped square from the Square Framelits collection in Calypso Coral card stock. The ribbon is glued on that scalloped square, with the accordion scrapbook on top.

Here’s some close-up pictures of the inside:

Scrapbook Page “Hit the road”

I also made a Scrapbook page with the “I Am Me” suite. I started with a Pool Party Core’dinations Card stock as the base. I used the I Am Me Designer series paper, the Around the World Stamp set and the Epic Day This and That Washi Tape as embellishments for this page. These are perfect for a Travel or Vacation Scrapbook page!

Thankful Tablescape Kit perfect for a Scrapbook page!

If you haven’t seen yesterday’s post, make sure to check it! I’m using the same kit called “Thankful Tablescape Simply Created kit” to create 5 different projects this week.

Today’s project is a Scrapbook page layout. This kit is awesome for Scrapbooking!  I love the little black tags (all printed and pre-cut for you!) that come in the kit. I used it to write my title “Fall 2013”. The kit comes with the White Stampin’ Chalk marker, perfect to write on the black tag! When you try it, you’ll want it for sure!

I used the 1-1/4″ Burlap Ribbon on this Scrapbook page as well as the Magnificient Maple stamp in the background. The yellow maple leaf comes from the kit and I cut the 2 other leaves with the Autumn Accents Bigz die. If you want to order this kit, just email me at julie_olivier@hotmail.com.

Artisan Award Entry #8: Together Scrapbook page

This is the third and final Scrapbook page that I submitted to the Artisan Award Contest last May.  I used My Digital Studio to create it, but I added real flowers made with Vanilla 1/2” Seam Binding Ribbon, pearls and thread.  I wanted  to create a real vintage and romantic look to match the picture (the picture was taken at my cousin’s wedding party). You can feel the love between them!!! I love that picture!
