Scor-Pal/Authentique Blog Hop

Welcome to my project on the Scor-Pal meets Authentique Blog Hop!

You should have hopped over to see me from Brenda's blog, if you didn't then be sure to go back to the Authentique Paper blog for all the fun details of the hop and prizes and hop your way to back through the blogs to me :)

I decided to utilize the lovely family themed papers and accents of the Splendid paper line to make an envelope album for photos and a coordinating aperture card.


For the envelopes you start with a piece of cardstock 8" by 8 1/2".
On the 8" side score at 4", turn and score on the 8 1/2" side at 1" and 7 1/2".


Burnish all score lines and snip on the 4" score line up to the cross score line (1")


Fold one side of flaps in and secure (I would use Scor-Tape but I have run out and need to get some more)


Fold the other side flaps over and secure to make the open ended envelope.


To bind the envelopes together cut a piece of cardstock 6" by 1 1/2" and score at 3/4" on the short end.


Burnish the line.


Use the strip to connect the envelopes together at the closed end.


Decorate the envelopes as you wish.


For the cover cut a piece of patterned paper 6 1/2" by 9". On the long side score at 4" and 5".


Attach the cover with Scor-Tape.


Decorate as wished and I added a Belly Band with a matching rosette to hold the album closed.


This is how it looks closed.


I then created a very simple aperture card with a Spellbinders die used to cut the window in the card.


Decorate the card as desired.


View from the side.


The set together :)

Now this is a very versatile album, it would be a perfect gift for a scrapbooker to store photos in to take to a crop or for a new Mom wanting to carry lots of new baby photos in.
I hope you enjoyed it and be sure to leave me a comment to be in with a chance of winning and then hop over to Cristine's blog to see her superb project!
