So I decided to play a little with some older paper pads I had lying around. These are beautiful papers From K&Company, but unlike Heartfelt Creations, Graphic 45 , Stamperia and the like, although they have a design on both sides of each paper, there are no pages set up as ephemera, or just right to make a card. These are beautiful though, as you will see.
First I built up the album using black chipboard, which I covered with black cardstock. And since this was just an experiment, I actually used black duck tape to tape them together. Four panels of 9″x7″, one 9″x3″, and two 9″x1″. In retrospect, the thinner panels should’ve been 1.5″ wide, because as things were added it was getting kinda fat!
So that’s the front. I borrowed from several scrapbooks and portfolios to pull this off. I also use a lot of punches from Martha Stewart, and die cuts that I get from everywhere, DiesrUs, G45, and Spellbinders too.
Page one and two:
Pages 3 & 4 – obviously you’ll have to watch the video to see everything!!
And finally the last two “pages”! I had a lot of fun designing this project. I have no idea, but imagine you could easily put 100 photos in here.
Hope I’ve inspired you!!
Check out the video here. Have a great day!
