Garden Shed Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on Club Scrap's Garden Shed Blog Hop.
If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop and see the list of participants, please click HERE.

I've created a handmade box that houses a kettle stitched mini book with Club Scrap's beautiful Garden Shed collection. The finished box measures 5-3/4 x 3-1/2 x 2". The book inside measures 2-1/2 x 5" and contains twelve stitched signatures.

These were the basic assembly steps:

1. Trim Book Board pieces to size with a utility knife, cutting mat and CS® Grid Ruler. (Make several firm passes with the knife for each cut.)

2. Adhere the boards with GCS® Bookbinding Glue to create the box base and lid.

3. Wrap the lid and base with the Club Stamp Quad Print.

4. Decorate the pages of the book with stamped images from your stash, and stitch them together with waxed linen thread.

5. Decorate the cover of the book and the box with Garden Shed UM stamp images.

Now the fun of adding photos to the inside pages of the mini album comes in. 

I love the Garden Shed Collection!

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.
Thanks for visiting!

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 . . .
