Dahlia Flutter Book

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Dahlia Blog Hop

I've put together a Flutter Book featuring the Dahlia Club Stamp paper collection.

The printed papers wrap the outside of the book, and the plain papers (plus one sheet of white) completes the inside.

Before I get started, take a moment to Pin the image below so you can find the project when you're ready to make your own flutter book . . .

Cut one 8.5x11 Orange, Yellow, Pink, Black and one additional 8.5x11 White Plain horizontally at 5.5". Score and fold each 5.5x8.5 horizontally at 4.25". Stamp the book pages if desired.

Pierce stitching holes into the fold of each page at .75 and 4.75". Thread a needle with waxed linen and stitch pages together in pairs of matching colors with a simple pamphlet stitch.

Plan the order of the pages in the book.

Nest the page pairs in order.

Trim excess paper from the right edges of the pages to match the width of the first page.

Glue the outside edges of the pink pages to the nearest black page.

Next, glue the outside edges of the black pages to the nearest yellow page.

Continue adhering the yellow to white, and the white to the orange.

To create the cover, trim one .375x5.75" Bookboard Spine and two 4.5x4.75" Bookboard Covers. Trim the 8.5x11 White Club Stamp Print to 7x11 and use to wrap the outside cover/spine, leaving .25" gutter between the spine.

Trim a sheet of Black Plain to 5.5x9.5" and adhere to the inside cover. 

As before, brush glue onto the outside edges of the orange pages.

Adhere to the inside front and back covers.

Decorate the 3.75x5" outside cover panel with a stamped sentiment and squares from the 8.5x11 Quad Print.

Paris Flea Market Card Keeper

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Paris Flea Markett Blog Hop!

This month I've recreated the Card Keeper, a project originally featured in the Wisteria Club Stamp kit back in July of 2014.

I made a pretty healthy pile of cards from this month's collection and thought it would be great to have a beautiful place to store them. See what I mean?

Wrap book boards your favorite papers from the collection. For the outside covers, I stamped Kraft paper with images from the Jumbo UM and India Black ink.

I also incorporated papers from the Club Stamp kit and some beautiful ribbon along with a jumbo Eiffel Tower charm did the rest.

I used Thickers for the "Cards" label on the front cover.

The white gel pen added highlights to the stamped images.

As long as I have access to the wooden expressions from the Crewel & Unusual Collection, I will be compelled to use them! How fitting to place the word "create" on the outside edge of the card keeper.

Next on the hop is the talented DebDuzScrappin.

I hope you have some time to spend at the Paris Flea Market!

Crewel & Unusual Blog Hop

Welcome, Club Scrap Blog Hoppers!

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in making other projects that I neglect my poor scrapbook. So, for today's Blog Hop, I've put together a 12x12 scrapbook page using the Crewel & Unusual Collection. 

The wooden Word Expressions happen to be one of my favorite goodies from this kit, so I used them a lot on this page. They compliment the paper and photo, while the Cutaparts and Heart Brads pull it all together. 

Marilee is now too busy for orchestra at school so it's fun to get a few pics of her playing Grandpa Williamson's violin into the scrapbook. The Crewel & Unusual printed and plain papers make a great backdrop for these special moments.

I like the above quote from the Greetings UM. It just seems so appropriate.

Next on the hop is the very creative Deb at Deb Duz Scrappin.
Thank you for hopping along with us.

Celebrate Love Pop-Up Card

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Celebrate Kit Blog Hop. If you just came from Lilian at The Leaf Studio you're right on track. Visit the Club Scrap blog to view the rest of the hop and linky party.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I've put together this happy pop-up card. The Celebrate collection, complete with the "Thinking Of You" and "love" stamps, was perfect for this project.

I used the Club Stamp Quad Print to create the panels for the front of the card.

Card created with Club Stamp Celebrate Quad Print
The pop-up template was one of the first things I pinned on Pinterest. (Search "I love you pop up card" to find all kinds of ideas.) After printing the template, place onto an inner card panel to cut solid lines with craft knife and score dotted lines with a bone folder.

Next, pop up the letters, fold along score lines, and embellish! (My favorite part.)

I hope you are able to celebrate Valentine's Day with a few creative paper projects from the Celebrate kit.
