Club Scrap July Blog Hop: Vintage Botany

Welcome to the monthly
We are sharing the July kit with you for ideas.
This month the kit is called:

I hope you have arrived here from
and seen her beautiful artwork.

My contribution ia a mini album for this
hop today. You need one 12x12 piece of cardstock for it!

For this album I  created a closure with one of
the wooden buttons that came with this kit.
Only the problem was that they were all lengthwise.
So i sanded the backside and stamped it horizontal.

 I choose one of the beautiful decorated flower papers
for this album and used my score board for all the lines.
Here is the template for the album.
If you enlarge the picture (by clicking on it),
you can read all the measurements.

After cutting some parts away you start folding it.
I added some vintage brown ink on all the folds.

I decorated my album with garden pictures, stamps,
cut aparts and using the stencil that all came with this kit.

On the right side i created a pocket. You can do this for
all 3 if you want, but I wanted some more space for
adding pictures.

Yhis is the album all folded open.

I just love this sentiment and I used it multiple tmes.
It also looks great for decoration in the background.

Here you see I used the stencil for decorating
the background of these pages. The twins have
fun playing in the garden.

Now when you lift the card from the pocket
there is another picture to see, that I added to the
back panel of the pocket.

Also I want to share my digital page again.
After I finished making the page, I printed it, but it was to small for
my 12x12 scrapalbum, so what to do?
I took one of the yellow 12x12 inch pages from the paper kit
and stamped and decorated the background. Adding some
of the cut aparts and I turned the digital page into a real page.

For more inspiration, hop over to
and see what she has in store for you!

Thank you very much for looking
and have a creative day!
