50s Kitchen Book in a Drawer

Greetings Blog Hoppers!

If you've missed any stops on the hop, check out the Club Scrap Blog for complete listings. This month's hop features the Club Scrap 50s Kitchen Collection.

How do you like the Nice To See You glasses charm on my Wooden Art Dummy? Lol!

The vivid colored papers worked well for my kettle-stitched mini album, which conveniently fits into a handmade Book Board kitchen drawer.


50s Kitchen cardstock was used to make the mini album while the Club Stamp text weight Quad Print worked well for wrapping the book board drawer.




The stamped quote from the Collection UM is perfect for the front of the album. It basically designated the size of the album and it all went from there. This will be great for holding family photos.


Since the mini album rests inside, there's room for setting "stuff" on top of the little shelving unit.


Next on the hop is the lovely and talented Julie, at Cape Cod Scrapper. Enjoy!!!

  5. Your white embossing on the black is so crisp, which ink and powder do you use, mine always looks a little "smeared"? Great box! I (heart) homemade boxes, esp with drawers!!

    1. Of course I'm away from my crafting supplies right now, but I don't use anything too special I don't think, I know both my embossing pad and powder are several years old. I'm just glad they still work! I do have the fine embossing powder, so that helps with detail for sure, and I think my embossing pad is Big & Bossy brand. However, I'm sure if you looked closely at the mini album cover, it wouldn't look too perfect, but it's good enought for me. Thank you so much.

  8. Great projects, Kay! And, like Janet said, your white embossing is so crisp--what's your secret? On such a large and detailed stamp I usually have various issues somewhere along the way.

    1. I do have the fine powder embossing powder in white, which worked well. I'm sure it's far from crisp if you saw it up close, but it good enough for me. No secrets that I know of, but thank you!

  10. Very clever and I love that your cover stamp determined the size of the album, which in turn, determined the size of the drawer unit. It never ceases to amaze me what you can do with book board!
