Hello crafty friends. I am really excited to share today’s project with you. Its my Game on Mini Album. I did this as a live on my FB channel and the link is at the bottom of the page.
Game on Mini Album
This beautiful mini album uses Cinnamon Cider as its base. Alongside the World of Good designer Series Papers.
Did you happen to notice to gorgeous trinkets in the World of Good Suite. Buckles and Page Corners. I really wanted to make a belt style closure. Using the Early Espresso Suede Ribbon and a brad together with these cute buckles i achieve the look I wanted.
Lots of Chess Pieces stamped and coloured on very vanilla and then fussy cut were the perfect adornment for the front of this lovely little book.
The base of the book is a 12” x 12” piece of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock. After cutting and burnishing it I then stamped all over it in Cinnamon Cider and Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. Using the Dice, the Cards and the chequer board stamps.
I also used pieces of very vanilla and stamped on those together with some pieces of Cinnamon Cider cardstock. These created pockets and places to adhere photos.
The beautiful Cinnamon Cider Gold Foiled Map paper in the World of Good DSP was the perfect paper to add into this book.
Using scissors, or a distressing tool, distress the edges of all the pieces you are sticking inside. This gives an aged look to your book. Once distressed edge with your early espresso dauber and ink.
12” x 12” Cinnamon Cider Cardstock.
- Score one side at 3 3/4”. 4”. 7 7/8th”. And 8 1/8th”
- Turn 90 degrees
- Score at 2 1/4”. 7 1/8th”
- 2 Very Vanilla 3 5/8th” x 4 5/8th”. Stamp on these with the Game on Stamp Set.
- 2 Very Vanilla. 3 1/2” x 4 5/8th” Stamp on these with the Game on Stamp Set.
- 1 World of Good DSP. 3 5/8th” x 4 5/8th”. Distress and edge with early espresso.
- Cinnamon Cider. 3 1/2” x 4 1/2”. 1 of this size
- Cinnamon Cider. 3 5/8th” x 4 1/2”. 2 of this size.
This is my suggestion on size. But you don’t need to do them 4 1/2” deep if you don’t need too. You could make them shorter if you like.
Stamp all over them and distress and edge with early espresso as with the other layers.
