Bright Blossoms Mini Scrapbook

We made this adorable mini scrapbook in my May Stampers Club.  I love how it turned out.  We used the Bright Blossoms stamp set that is on the retired list – it’s a cute little set that you can make various combinations of flowers with.

envie-scrapbook I like the fact that this one will stand up by itself.  It’s perfect for adding photos and journaling and then setting out on a table or desk as a display item.  It would make a sweet gift.   envie-scrapbook-open

Here is some more on how I made it:

  • I used 4 of the Crumb Cake note card envelopes (on the retired list), I tucked the flaps into the inside but you could choose to leave them out or even cut them off.  Tucking them in gives some added stability.  Inside each envelope I would slide a photo or journal a story or note that you might want to stay hidden instead of having it on the page.
  • Place two envelopes end to end and connect them with Washi Tape – I used the Gingham Garden Washi tape which is also on the Retired List.  Then add another envelope on either side – connecting with Washi tape.  So you end up with a “book” of envelopes.
  • I added another piece of Washi tape around the outside spine and then the extra flower piece as a decoration on the front.  envie-scrapbook-back
  • Then decorate the front and the pages of the mini scrapbook.  For the front I added a frame from the On Film framelits cut from Island Indigo card stock – with a piece of Island Indigo Baker’s Twine (on the retired list).  Attach it with bits of dimensionals at the top and bottom and then you can slide in a photo from the side later.  Stamp a vase of flowers and punch with the Decorative Label punch.  Punch a second one from Melon Mambo card stock – cut it in half and layer it behind the stamped one.  Add to the front with dimensionals.  Finish with a little designer button.
  • For pages 1 & 2 –   I used Daffodil Delight and the On Film Framelits – cut a frame and a camera.  Add a Rhinestone to the camera.  Stamp a flower – cut with the oval punch and then layer with the scallop oval punch.envie-scrapbook-pg1-2
  • For pages 3 & 4 –  This page has a Pear Pizzazz frame, Island Indigo Baker’s Twine and another stamped flower punched with the Oval punch and a scalloped oval punch frame.  envie-scrapbook-pg3-4
  • For pages 5 & 6 – For the last two pages there are frames in Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight.  A Melon Mambo Camera.  Another flower punched with the 1-1/4 ” circle punch and a 1-3/8″ Melon Mambo punch.  Finish with some twine and Rhinestones.envie-scrapbook-pg5-6

On each page I added the frames with Dimensionals only along the top and bottom so I could go back and slide some photos underneath.  On the blank pages I’ll plan to add journaling.  Inside the pockets – larger photos.  You could also use the pockets to hold a ticket stub or something else that goes along with the photos.

envie-scrapbook2A really pretty project.  I hope you like it!
