Hello and happy Friday! Jennifer here to share a mini book I created using the Blank Wood Album! These birch covers measure 6x8 and have six pre-drilled holes! You can paint, stain, or stamp the wood; or do as I did and cover with paper! One of the nice features about the Wood Albums is that you can create your own pages and insert as many as you like. I scrapped about my first mission trip to Haiti back in 2013
I used my Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive to adhere my paper and then trimmed any excess with my scissors. Using a sanding tool works nicely as well! I added contrasting prints with a border as well as a heart cut file. Finally, I used gold glitter Thickers for my title.
I cut most of my pages to just under 6x8 inches to fit inside the album covers. I usually will add an extra strip of paper to the edge of the page to reinforce the area where my hole punches lie. This prevents ripping or tearing in the future.
Utilizing your scorer is a great way to add extra space for photos or journaling. Here on the right page, I cut my paper 8 x 10 inches scoring at 5 inches. I added a sticker tab to the upper flap for easy opening.
I cut my 4x6 photo to fit the crease in my page adding a border at the bottom to break up the print. I intend to go back and do more journaling.
Using small envelopes or tags is a great way to add extra embellishments, journaling, or photos. You can see I added a photo on the back side of the envelope.
For this page, I cut a 12x12 Acrylic Sheet down to fit my album. Before adding my photo, I colored the acrylic with three coordinating alcohol inks. On the opposite side that I applied ink, I stamped shapes and sentiments with StazOn in black.
Here, I added a tag that I covered with patterned paper. On the back I adhered a library card to add additional journaling.
This page is another that I cut fom the 12x12 Acrylic Sheet. I again used alcohol ink but this time in red and gold mixative.
I created another flap with my Scor-Pal adding photos on the front and inside. I then scored an accordion style piece to fit three photos! The possibilities are endless!
