GLITTER QUEEN BLOG HOP---DAY ONE

HELLO STAMPERS AND PAPER CRAFTERS!!  WELCOME TO DAY ONE OF OUR MAY GLITTER QUEEN BLOG HOP.

I AM SO HAPPY YOU HAVE HOPPED OVER TO MY BLOG TO SEE WHAT I HAVE CREATED FOR YOU.  TODAY I THOUGHT I WOULD START WITH AN ADORABLE LITTLE PHOTO ALBUM.  I AM A GRANDMOTHER AND I JUST CAN'T HAVE ENOUGH PHOTOS OF MY 5 GRANDS (SOON TO BE 6!!)

THIS FOLDED ALBUM IS MADE FROM ONE PIECE OF DESIGNER PAPER FOR THE ALBUM ITSELF,  AND THEN SOME CARD STOCK FOLDED INSIDE FOR THE PHOTO PAGES.  HERE WE GO:

 ISN'T THIS ADORABLE?  IT IS FOR MY GRAND BABY PENELOPE.  THE RIBBON AT THE TOP IS JUST A BELLY BAND MADE FROM A STRIP OF DSP AND THE POOL PARTY RUFFLED  RIBBON GLUED TOGETHER.  IT SLIPS OVER THE ALBUM.  IT CAN ACTUALLY STAY CLOSED WITH THE FLOWER POCKET ON THE TOP, BUT TO CARRY IT IN MY PURSE I WANTED TO MAKE SURE IT STAYED CLOSED.

HERE IS A CLOSER VIEW SO YOU CAN SEE THE CUTE SQUARE IN THE FRONT THAT FORMS FROM THE FOLDING OF THE DSP.  I MADE A FLOWER OF 5 PUNCHES WITH THE BLOSSOM PUNCH AND A FIRE RHINESTONE BRAD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOWER.  I SCRUNCHED UP THE PUNCHES AND THEN CONNECTED THEM WITH THE BRAD.  ISN'T IT CUTE?  I LOVE THIS PAPER - SPICE CAKE.  LET'S OPEN IT UP:


 WITH THE BELLY BAND OFF AND THE TOP OPENED FROM THE SQUARE POCKET, YOU SEE MY FIRST SURPRISE - I USED A CHIPBOARD LETTER "P" ON TOP OF A FLOWER PUNCH OUT OF CRUMB CAKE CARD STOCK.  I USED HEAT AND STICK POWDER AND BAJA BLUE GLASS GLITTER TO BLING UP THE LETTER.  YOU GET A PEEK OF THE POOL PARTY BLUE CARD STOCK INSIDE...


ISN'T THE GLITTER SO PRETTY ON MY CHIPBOARD LETTER?  THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE USED HEAT AND STICK POWDER AND IT WAS SO EASY I WILL BE USING IT A LOT FOR MY GLITTER. . . KEEPS IT FROM SHAKING OFF LIKE IT DOES WITH JUST REGULAR GLUE.

 I OPENED THE RIGHT SIDE AND YOU CAN SEE THERE IS ANOTHER SQUARE ON THE LEFT.  I USED THE 5 PETAL PUNCH AND MAKE A STAMPED FLOWER FOR THIS LITTLE POOL PARTY SQUARE.  OOPS, HERE IS ANOTHER SNEAK PEEK - A TAB PUNCH OF THIS SPICE CAKE DSP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CARD STOCK...

WITH  BOTH SIDES OPENED AND THE CARD STOCK UNFOLDED TO REVEAL 5 PAGES FOR PHOTOS ON THE FRONT, AND 4 PLACES ON THE BACK FOR PHOTOS.  CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY GRAND BABY PHOTOS!! DUE TO PRIVACY ISSUES, I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED THIS BEFORE I ADDED HER PHOTOS.  I JUST REALIZED YOU CAN EVEN ADD SOME JOURNALING ON BOTH SIDES THAT FLIPPED OPEN.  I WILL HAVE TO ADD SOME VERY VANILLA CARD STOCK THERE AND DO SOME JOURNALING!!  WOW, I DIDN'T EVEN THINK OF THIS UNTIL I LOOKED AT THESE PHOTOS.  COOOOL!!

 ANOTHER VIEW OF IT OPEN.

HERE YOU CAN SEE ALL THE PAGES OPENED UP FULLY.  SORRY THIS IS SIDEWAYS.  AND YOU CAN JUST BARELY SEE THE TAB PUNCH AT THE BEGINNING TO OPEN IT.

NOW A FEW OF THE DETAILS SO YOU CAN MAKE ONE OF THESE TOO:

DOUBLE SIDED DESIGNER PAPER (I USED SPICE CAKE):  CUT AT 11" BY 11".
POOL PARTY CARD STOCK - 4" X 11", 2 PIECES; 2" X 2", 2 PIECES
ASSORTED PUNCHES:  TAB PUNCH, BLOSSOM PUNCH, 5 PETAL PUNCH, FLOWER PUNCH.
SIMPLY SCORED SCORING TOOL

BY FOLDING AND THEN TRIMMING OUT A FEW PIECES, YOU GET THIS ADORABLE FOLDING ALBUM.  THERE IS A VIDEO HERE TO SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE IT. I USED CARD STOCK FOR THE 2 X 2 SQUARES INSTEAD OF DSP.  I AM OFFERING A CLASS ON THESE FOLDING ALBUMS IN JUNE, IF YOU ARE LOCAL.

I AM GIVING AWAY  BLOG CANDY - A STAMP SET, SOME PAPER, RIBBON, BRADS, BUTTONS, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE AS I LOOK AROUND TO SEE WHAT I CAN FIND.  ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS:

1.  BE A FOLLOWER TO THIS BLOG AND LEAVE A COMMENT TELLING ME YOU ARE A FOLLOWER. ALSO TELL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY GRAND KIDS AND HOW MANY.  A NICE COMMENT ABOUT MY PROJECT WOULD BE SINCERELY APPRECIATED AS WELL!!

TIME TO HOP ON OVER TO THE JAN'S BLOG.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this adorable album, I'll be making one soon. I am the Bobo (gma) to 4. 3 beautiful, smart and funny girls and 1 little boy who is handsome and spoiled by the girls. They sure add spice to our life! I always say our 1 daughter has been our best investment. She gave us 4 wonderful grands.
