Scor-Pal Meets Doodlebug!

Today I will be sharing my project that was featured on the Scor-pal blog as part of this week's Scor-pal and Doodlebug blog week.
Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on over there and see what's been going on this week.
Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 30, so there's still time.

I loved the papers and embellishments so much in this set, they are bright and cheery and just perfect for Summer!
I decided to make 2 cards and an accordion fold mini scrapbook album

My first card is an offset gate fold. I started with a piece of cardstock 6" by 12" and scored along the long side at 4" and 10" and burnished the folds.

I decorated both the inside and out and added a piece of ribbon to act as a closure

I loved this half bracket journal box and I plan to add a sentiment to it when I decide what occasion I will use the card for.

My second card is an envelope style card. I started again with a 6" by 12" piece of cardstock and scored it on the long side at 3" and 9" and burnished the folds. The I trimmed the end panels on the diagonal so when the ends were folded together they formed an open V.
I decorated the front using a double row of punched grass to hold the front closed.

The insert was made from another of the journal boxes, this time a semi circle.

I added a decorated message mat to the back of the insert.

My final project is a mini scrapbook in an accordion fold style.
I started with 2 pieces of cardstock, each one 6" by 12".
I scored along the long side of each piece at 3 1/2". 7" and 10 1/2" and burnished the folds.
I attached both pieces together on the 1 1/2" overlap forming a 6 panel album.

I used a flower border punch to punch all the way along the top edge and accordion folded the album and decorated.

The front sides have a fence and grass border along the bottom edge.

The back of the panels was decorated too.

Now it is ready to add your photos to.

I have a few challenges I would like to enter:
Anything Goes - Not a Square (accordion album)
Papertake Weekly - Make Your Own (the rosette)
