Edwin on Display

Happy Sunday!

This project is kind of an "off spring" of the project I did earlier this week. I wanted to do something more than a card and I am behind on scrapbooking and thought this little album would be perfect for on the coffee table or any display. It will hold 3 nice size pictures in the middle and then you can add some journaling on the tag that I have that fits into the pocket on the right- plus you could add a photo above it. I also made that a pocket behind Edwin as well.

The image of course is Chasing Edwin from the Catching Butterflies Magnolia Collection and these stamps are on sale over at KLSNS right now for up to 35% off. This is a great way to build up your collection AND Kelly has a special on shipping as well. I hope you'll take advantage of it!

This is a picture of the outside of the album- it can be closed and stringed shut for safe keeping or travel.

I thought I would also show you some close up of the other pages that I made. I did keep them simple and used Basic Gray Two Sccops paper on them. The little birdie is also a magnolia stamp that someone stamped for me- and I thought it would fit the theme.

Basics for making the album:
2 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock
Score both at 4 inches and slide them together so that the inside measures 8in wide AND the outsides match up: adhere in that position. Embellish the outside as you like.
Then you will cut 3 coordinating cardstocks for the base of your album pages:
7 3/4 x 5 38
7 3/4 x 6 6/8
7 3/4 x 8 1/2
Each of them should be scored 1 in from the top and attached together (I used the large white SU eyelets). This will allow each page to fold upwards to view the next page. Embellish the pages and either side as you like.
You could make the same type of album pages for either side but just be careful how bulky this becomes.
I hope this helps and have a splendid day!

Fun project. I never seem to get around to finishing big scrapbooking projects either, but this would be very manageable. Thanks for a great idea.
