Today is Club Scrap's Cape Cod (the May Kit) blog hop, and I'm so happy to be a stop on the hop. If you'd like start at the beginning, the hop originates at the Club Scrap Creates Blog.
|Cape Cod's Seaside Memory Book Project|
(I used the paperless kit, now just out of stock, and my own papers for this one)
The outside of the project looks just like a regular book on the shelf, but when opened, the inside houses compartments for a mini album and other memorabilia.
So, details on how I used the kit with my own papers:
First I wrapped the front cover with my photocopied image.
I then adhered a black plain paper that was large enough to wrap both the spine and the back cover.
I added a decorative strip to add a little something to the front cover. This Full Circle Cutapart with the printed phrases (from the Full Circle Embellishment Pk) is one of my favorites.
I finished up by adding a black plain inside front cover and then wrapping the inside compartments with printed text weight papers.
The decorating fun began with photos and other stuff from my stash, including making a mini accordion album to fit into one of the bottom compartments.
I tend to go on and on when I get excited about something--can you tell I'm pretty excited???
This is the original Seaside Memory Book Project using the papers included in the complete kit, so it went together a little faster.
Just one more -- the same project finished off differently.
Your next stop on the Cape Cod Hop is The Artful Gamut. You'll love to see what Cathy is up to today!
Thanks for hopping in.
