I have been to England and London too,so i went tolook for
all those old pictures to scrap.......I just could not find where
i put them....you recognize this?! I found one and made this
fun popup card with a 12x12 inch piece of paper cut in half.
This is the outside. The phonebooth is embossed in red.
Inside of the card with the picture on the
pop-up part of the card.
Backside of the card.
So what else to do with this kit?
Looking at the colors it made me think
the colors would be crad for a baby boy book.
Now isn't this a coincidence:
I need one of those books soon,
for my daughter is pregnant:
and swelling a lot for she is having twin boys!
The black image is cut out with my cricut
with the "New Arrival" cartidge and the sentiment
from the UM stamp is absolutely the greatest and
you can fill in any word(s) you want.
So for these two boys I have made a brag book.
Not two seperate ones,but one book for two.
Here is the finished book and it is ready to be filled
when they are born end June/ begin July.
These are the parts I started with:
back: 13"x 6,5"
spine: 1 1/4"x 6,5"
left and right parts: 6,5"x 6,6
Having made more books and watching the CS video
tutorials I remembered how to add different colors
of paper,especially when you do noth have the right
lenght of paper.
I used all the different colors inside and
out to cover the bookboard.
Here is the complete cover for the book without
Making holes in the spine to add the inside pages.
Here the finished left side of the book:
I used the Fizz and Cape Cod stencil to create
more depth to the paper.
The picture frames are embossed with clear
embossing powder and added with foam tape
tothe background, so I can add pictures ot the
babies. The numbers are the cut aparts.
On the right side I used a sentiment from
(baby sentiment was a freebie this week
and adapted for twins).
The world stampand the other sentiment are
from Club Scraps Bookshelves kit.
I cut several 12x12 papers in half and folded them
to be the inside papers and used wax thread to
sew the papers in the book.
On the outside I added some blue beads
I can't wait to fill the book with pictures!
For this I have to wait a little more,but at least
this project is done. I will share with you
more of the inside, when the pictures are there.
Now for more inpiration on what to do with the
London Calling kit,please hop over to
and see what she has come up with.
Thank you for looking,
