Hello!! This is Lori from ScrappinMyStressAway with fun mini album today. I am super excited to be at She's A Sassy Lady today.
I do not have an April Fool's project for you, unless you count the big April Fool's joke Mother Nature has been playing on us!!!
I am using spring colors because I am waiting patiently for spring weather to come!!!
I saw a project similar to this a while back and wanted to give it a try. I am taking a short break from scrapbooking - I have been at it hard and heavy since my middle son will graduate next month and I have to have his album completed!!
I bought a pack of 10 file folders at the Dollar Store and paired one up with this yummy DCWV Stack of paper called Collage Art. I found this at Michaels.
I took one of the file folders to make a template. I folded the bottom 4" up to create a pocket. I then folded in 4" from the center out on each side. This was easier than measuring from the outside edge due to the tab.
I have seen other dimensions, I just kind of eyeballed what I wanted and measured.
The banner was fussy cut from one of the squares.
Can you believe I did not even use my Gypsy or Cricut???
I used my ATG gun to adhere the edges of the pockets.
I cut some pieces from the paper pack. One page had several sayings and a couple of journal tags on it. I trimmed them to fit my space.
I inked all of the edges in pink.
Here is the back. I used a big piece of yellow paper to cover the back.
I adhered some 3Girl JAM ribbon under the paper in order to tie the mini album closed.
This was a fun little project to make. I have 8 more file folders and lots of paper so I will probably make more :)
Thanks Sheila for having me over today!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful April!
