Sunflowers Blog Hop

Summer is flyin' by and it's already time for the Sunflowers Club Scrap Blog Hop! If you'd like to start at the beginning, click HERE.

I've really enjoyed the Sunflowers Stamps, so I've created a plaque that I can have out all the time.

The wooden 8x8" plaque is recycled from an old project I no longer cared for. I like it so much better now.

What I used:
Sunflowers Stamps
Sunflowers Wooden Buttons & Waxen Linen
White Metal Label Holder
8x8" Wood Plaque
Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens
White and Cream Acrylic Paints

It will hang or rest on an easel. I think it looks great on this Dollar Store easel for now! 

Thanks for stopping by. Next on the hop is the talented Debbie Weller at DebDuzScrappin.

Office Space Envelope Book

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Office Space Blog Hop.

I've created an Envelope Accordion Mini Book for today's hop featuring papers and rubber stamps from Club Scrap's Office Space collection. The outside covers measure 3.5x4.5", and the 3.25x4.25" inner envelope pages were made with We R's Envelope Punch Board.

It will make a great gift for someone at the office. I just know it!

Here are a few pics I took while making the book . . .

Insert 3x4" art panels into each envelope.

Your next hop stop is with Debbie at DebDuzScrappin.

Boardwalk Blog Hop

Thanks for strolling over to my stop on the Club Scrap Boardwalk Blog Hop. This month I've crafted a Box Book covered with the Boardwalk 8.5x11 White Print. It holds 7-3/4" square pages, so it's a mini album but the covers look like a box. The inside has plenty of room for summer vacation photos and keepsakes.

The outside measures 8-1/2 x 8-1/2".

The inside contains a two-ring binder that holds the 7-3/4" square pages.

The box-like structure is 1-1/4" deep, so I've got plenty of room for chunky pages and memorabilia.

The 2 x 3" nook in the front cover is a great place for embellishing.

I took a few snapshots while constructing the project . . .

Now I get to fill up the remaining pages!

Thanks for taking this stroll with me down the Boardwalk!

Next on the hop is very creative Debbie at DebDuzScrappin.

Creative License Blog Hop

Thanks for cruisin' to my stop on the Club Scrap Creative License Blog Hop.

This month I've created a frame with the Creative License Club Stamp Quad Print. The frame holds a picture from a trip to New York City to visit my brother.

I came across a used wooden frame in my basement. The front and sides had been painted medium brown, so I just left it.

1. Cut the Quad Print into fourths. Adhere the pieces to the frame with CS Bookbinding Glue and a foam brush. Completely cover the frame with paper and allow it to dry.

2. Remove excess paper by sanding along the edge of the frame. The distressed edges are a nice touch.

3. Embellish the frame with ribbon, a metal charm, and a personalized license plate made with rubber stamps. (The Creative License Jumbo stamp set is perfect for making custom plates!)

Next on the hop is the talented DebDuzScrappin. Enjoy!!!

I'll leave you with this great Creative License rubber stamped quote . . .

Thank you for stopping,

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.

Thanks for fluttering by!
