If you are not sure whose blogs you have visited, you can find a list of hoppers at the bottom of each blog!
My projects were designed with my husband in-mind. He loves to golf and with Father's Day in June here in the USA, the Stampin Up Country Club suite was perfect!! I am sad this suite will be retiring once the new Annual Catalog comes out.
For the card, I used Garden Green for the card base and layers of Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade. I added the DSP for the top layers card. I stamped, colored and diecut out the golfer! I also made this card to go along with 2 challenges, one was for a card sketch challegne we do weekly with my group you can join the challenge by checking it out here. The other is to Stampin Up Demonstrators by Donna Jean Griffith, to keep stampin, if your a demonstrator you can find it on our Demonstrator Planning Facebook Page. #msscardchallenge7 #keepstamping
For my project I made a mini accordion album! I found my inspiration from Jan B she offered a tutorial and it was so easy to follow. Click here to see her tuturiol.
I used 1 sheet of 12x12 Night Of Navy to make the accordion base. Cut 1 piece to 5 1/2"x11" and the other 5 1/2"x12".
Score the 5 1/2"x11" across the 11" side at 3", 6" & 8 1/2"
Score the 5 1/2"x12" across the 12" side at 4", 7 1/2" & 11"
I do recommen referign to Jan's video to see how to attach the 2 pieced together.
I used Garden Green for the cardstock layers and cut them, 2 each of the following sizes:
2 3/8" x 5 3/8"
2 7/8" x 5 3/8"
3 3/8" x 5 3/8"
3 7/8" x 5 3/8"
and then the DSP cut 2 each of the following sizes:
2 1/4" x 5 1/4"
2 3/4" x 5 1/4"
3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
3 3/4" x 5 1/4"
I decided to only decorate 1 side of the accordion album with pictures. My kids might be adding to the blankside.....maybe!?!
Rather than tying a ribbon to keep it closed, I created a belly band, I used the strip of cardstock that was leftover from the 12x12. I made sure to keep it loose so it slides off easily with all the layers!
Below you can see the album opened. I have blocked the faces on a few pictures but you can get a sense on how my embellishments look!!!
I hope you liked my projects. Leave a comment and then on over to Tiziana Milano blog!
