Hello, to all my friends and visitors!
Welcome to our super fun Falling For Handmade Paper Blog Hop!
I'm so happy you're here,
and I'm excited to show you what I created for the event!
I have to tell you that Arnold Grummer and Club Scrap products
are an incredible combination for creativity!
This is my first time using a Club Scrap kit,
and this Falling Leaves Collection is gorgeous!
It inspired me to create this fun mini album:
I began by choosing various cardstock pieces from the kit,
and making this fun stash of handmade paper.
To some I added Gold Mica Dust,
and to others I added Copper Mica Dust.
I was a little bit pressed for time,
so instead of making my album from scratch, as I usually do,
I opted to use a pre-made album base from Prima.
I stamped leaves over the entire album cover,
using a variety of the leaf stamps.
Then I added several layers of paper,
a double-loop bow, and one of the pretty charms.
Left side: A pocket to hold various tags and photo mats.
Right side: Pretty paper and some stamping.
Left side: Pocket holding handmade paper tag and envelope.
Right side: Cardstock page with washi tape, tag, bow and charm.
Left side: Decorated page with removable photo mat, and handmade paper tag with ribbon accent.
Right side: I love what that card says! lol
A repeat of the left side but with a bigger tag, and the addition of the charm.
Left side: Side pocket with two photo mats.
Right side: Belly band with two photo mats.
Background has some fun leaf stamping.
I love all the papers in the kit but this brown with gold was so pretty!
Both pages: I adhered handmade paper tags for tuck spots.
They hold the photo mats.
Here's a closer look at the tag.
I embedded a skeleton leaf into the pulp as I was making it.
I used the tag template.
This one is a little further embedded:
More pocket pages.
Left side: Holds journal spot, and handmade tag booklet with charm.
Right side: Pocket holds a photo mat and handmade paper tag.
A closer look at the handmade paper tag booklet.
I added some stamping, some washi tape, and pinned on a charm.
A closer look at the tag on the right side.
It also holds a skeleton leaf.
Left side: Pretty paper with more fun stamping.
Don't you just love the word "SPLENDID"?
Right side: Another pocket full of tags, photo mats, and journal cards.
Here's the back cover all stamped:
I can't wait to fill this album with photos of Fall!
Maybe from my trip to the lake...where I am right now! ;o)
