Welcome to the last Club Scrap blog hop of 2015.
I hope you arrived at my blog from
with her wonderful projects.
As you know all the bloggers are always listed
on the main Club Scrap Blog.
The kit of this month is called Navigation and
so it is all about boats. As you see the above picture,
that is what I see from my top window! It is
Lake Westend and we do have a boat. It is
in winter storage now, but during the season
we float about and I like to keep a journal as
to when and where we go. This paper was just
perfect to make a boat journal for next year!
Here you see the finished journal.
It meaures 6"x 4,5"and I made a template for
you on how I folded the outside.
You need a piece of 6"x 12"to make the
cover of the album.
(click on the photo for the larger version)
score the page at 4,5- 5,5 - 10 - 11.
In between the 4,5 and 5,5 inch you make the holes
that will be used to fasten the inside pages.
I used 3 times three folded pages for the inside.
6x 5,5"x 8,5"and
3 x 5,5" 12".This is the middle page in each signature.
Score this at 4,25 and 8,5. The extra 3,5 is used
to make a pocket
by folding this towardsthe inside.
I did not want to fasten the pockets with double sided tape
(for usually that opens after while when you add things
inside) soi choose to sew it, each pocket in a different
stich.I thought it looked fun with the boat theme.
Here he see all the pages inside the journal.
I made a pocket on the front inside
and on the back where I could add tags to go
on the pages,when we will be going with the boat.
Here are 3 tags ready to be used. They will be added on
the page when done.
I did not totally finish the pages of the book, that will
happen when I use it on our the trips that we will take,
depending on what we do and wherewe go.
Just a little decoration here and there.
This is the complete outside of the journal. In the middle
you see where all the scrap floss comes together from sewing
in the pages. I used some beads from a previous kit
On the front I added also a picture of our boat.
We have it already for 15 years.
On the front I printed out:
2016-boat journal - Onyva.
"Onyva" is the name of our boat and is French for:
The anchor came with the kit, just added the steering
wheel on top.
And this is the last card: so easy to make with just
the cut up part, a piece of lovely scrapbook paper,
a fiber and a printed sentiment.
I wish you all a safe and creative journey into 2016.
May you be blessed with health and happiness
and wonderful friendships!
