Concertina family scrapbook
Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 16 Jan, 2018
Summer is finally here! It’s time for warmer temperatures, long picnics and amazing holidays! Most importantly, it’s time to create unforgettable adventures. Why not document your summer memories with an adorable album? This four-panelled project gives you plenty of space to include your photographs as well as some light journaling and embellishments. The concertina design also makes it super-easy for additional pages to be added; ideal if you're crafting on the go.
1. Cut a piece of Kraftstax to 11.5 x 6'', and a second one to 6 x 7''. Score every 3.5'' to make the album panels, and glue the two pieces together. Trim a light Santoro’s Gorjuss paper to make two 6 x 3.5'' panels, and a bolder design to make two 5.75 x 3.25'' pieces. Adhere one to each section of the album to form the backgrounds.
2. Select a few photos to adhere in your album and adhere one to each panel, layering them on top of plain cardstock to make them stand out. Die cut little elements using the Xcut Beach Hut Small Dies and Oceanic Large Dies set to embellish the pages, and adhere in the space around the photos.
3. Die cut a title using the wedding alphabet die set, and mount onto die-cut foam. Fix in place. Type some journaling and die cut a small strip of waves. Stick the two together and attach to the top of one of the pages. Make a vellum pocket to house some more photos, finishing with a die-cut 'Memories' sentiment.
