Club Scrap May Blog Hop: Creative License

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

(I have a second post today...please, click HERE to see my card for The Card Concept)

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

It's time for Club Scrap's Monthly Blog Hop + Linky Party!!!

This month we're featuring the Creative License Collection!

If you came from Club Scrap's Blog you're in the right place!
You're next stop is Kay's Blog!!!

After you're done hopping, go make your projects to link HERE!

This collection is great for masculine projects or friends that like cards! =)

I made a 8 x 8.5" Album for our family's summer vacation later in June!
Yay! I'm ahead of the game...since I'm so behind in my scrapbooking already! =)

I trimmed 14 sheets of prints and plain papers to size 8" x 8.5" (I added 0.5" because of the binding wire...this way, I get a 8" x 8" page).
I adhered 2 sheets together for the front cover and did the same for the back cover.

I basically decorated the album with print papers and Embellishment Cutaparts (click on photos for a larger view):

I did some stamping here, using Creative License Jumbo Unmounted Stamps:

I used my Cricut on these 2 spreads (circle and overlay):

I used adhesive only on the edges of the print papers, to make the pockets:

After the pages were decorated, I used my Heidi Swapp Cinch to punch holes and add the binding wire to put the album together.

For the cover, I used print papers and ribbon (from Creative License Fibers):

I used Cricut-cut word ("vacation") and Creative License Jumbo Unmounted Stamps for the title, added more ribbon and fibers on the wire and added a silver ball chain with a car charm (that comes in the Creative License Deluxe Kit).

The pages look bare right now, but once I have the pictures, I might embellish the pages a little bit more: with journaling, memorabilia, etc...
I might make a video showing all the make sure you check back sometime in July! =)
