Here is the Club Scrap Artist Team for you with a challenge
to let the creativity flow. This month we were asked to create
a project, lay out or card with at least materials from 2 different
collections. This can be papers, stamps or embellishments. It all
starts at the Club Scrap Blog.
I hope you have arrived here from
Jennifer's Blog and seen what her ideas where.
I put my thinking cap on and came up with these cute
little booklets for my grandson, who just loves to draw.
I went trough all my boxes and picked out some papers
that match nicely together.
What do you need to make one booklet:
1x cardstock 5.5 x 8 inch
1x cardstock 5.5 x 3 inch
a piece of ribbon (aprox. 17 inch)
some copy paper
needle and a piece of cotton or waxed linnen thread.
For my forst booklet I used a piece of Graffiti paper
and a button from the Sprinkles kit (PSL 2012).
I folded the cardstock in half and fastned the
button to the front of the booklet with a piece
of raffia. Leaving the raffia on the button for
closing the book when finished.
Take the copy paper. I used 4 pieces and cut them to
5 1/4 x 7 3/4 inch. Fold it in half, punch some holes
in the center and sew these pages into the cardstock cover.
Now to cover the sewing and decorate the booklet,
take the piece of 5.5 x 3 inch and fold in half.
I used a piece of decorative Picknick paper. You can blue
it with tape of bookbinding glue.
Now glue the strip of cardstock to the booklet
and close the book with the raffia.
You can do a bow or tie it around.
Here are the 3 books I made before derorated.
You recognize the different papers?
For decoration I used the stamps from
this months Adirondacks kit on the red banner.
On the middle booklet it is Creative Licence and National
Parks stamps. On the last booklet you see the
elephant and sentiment from the 2007 Serengeti kit.
You can see Owen loved the little booklets
and when he came from school I asked him which
one he liked best to start drwing in: of course
he picked the elephant. He loves wild animals.
Owen busy making his first drawing.
Here the inside with Owen's first drawing!
These mini booklets are super to take with you in your
purse with a small package of pencils. This way you
can draw everywhere.
And now over to
and see her inspiration.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
