I've really enjoyed using the Sweet Sorbet Designer Paper during Sale-a-bration. . . not to mention all of the amazing ideas that I've seen in cyber world! Today I'm sharing a scrapbook design that I engineered myself! (Stamp-a-gineer strikes again!) I was inspired by a simliar idea shared by a team member that was made from a 6 x 9 envelope. Wanting to use only Stampin' Up! product, this is what I came up with!
The finished album is 5-7/8 x 5 and will hold up to ten larger photos, even more if you're using smaller photos. I love using these smaller albums as gifts for special occasions! They're inexpensive and quick to make!
Here's what it looks like inside! It has 2 pockets for holding slide out pages, plus 2 attached pages.
Here's how I created my envelope from a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.
- Score at 3/8" and 6-3/16".
- Turn and score at 5" and 10".
- Cut away the 2" x 6-3/16" piece.
- Fold in on 3/8" and 6-3/16" score lines.
- Turn over and apply Sticky Strip to 3/8" flap.
- Fold and match edge while securing with Sticky Strip.
Voila! You now have your envelope to make your album. The left end is open . . . fold the flap over the opposite end. . . and then fold in center. (Use your bone folder to make that center crease since you're folding 2 layers at the same time.)
Really . . . the hardest part of this project is deciding on which paper to put where when decorating! I made these last month with my downline and they loved them. Everyone's turned out a bit different.
Here's another way I chose to decorate mine!
What do you think? Aren't they adorable? Just think of the endless possibilities of who and what occasion you could make these!
