It's Wednesday and my turn on the blog to share an easy-peasy project using Bella Blvd Just Add Color! papers and trims!
I was so excited when my package arrived with all the Bella Blvd goodies in it! I wanted to combine my love of papercrafting and scrapbooking (of which I'm terribly behind!). This accordion album seemed to be a perfect fit for the start of today's project --- I'll share more of it next week!
Craftwell USA eBrush
Markers (I used BIC brand)
Cardstock, white (110lb Neenah was my choice)
Bella Blvd (Just Add Color! papers, Trinkets (stickers) B&W, Enamel DooDads (arrows, stars, photo corners, and hearts - I'll be using more of the stickers and DooDads in next week's post, so stay tuned!
die cuts (border, heart, flower, letters)
Micron .05 pen, black
Other embellishments as desired
Adhesive ( I used Xryon for this project for edge to edge coverage!)
Let's get started:
Cut 4 white card sheets at 10.5 inches by 5 inches. Score at 5" and again at 10" on the long side. Repeat for each sheet. Use the 1/2 inch wide scored section as your gluing tab to create your accordion style book. Here's what mine looks like before adding any embellishments.
For the cover: I have a roll of burlap and cut a square just a little larger than 5 inches. I chose to also put that through the Xyron machine for good adhesive coverage and to make sure it would stick! Added my cover elements as shown below.
As much as I'm loving my current surroundings and being with extended family, I will be grateful to get back home and into my regular crafting space early next month!
Hope you have some crafting time set aside for the week! If you haven't already, be sure to join us on the eBrush Facebook page!
