Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s October 2017 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Embossing Powders and the Scrapbook Collection. If you’ve arrived here from the talented Dana Gong blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!
Take a look at my DIY Matchbook Mini Album:
I used the new scrapbook collection called Our Family Scrapbook Collection to create this DIY Matchbook Mini Album.
This scrapbook collection is right on trend with fresh colors, watercolored elements, geometric designs, and florals (of course!). The papers and embellishments have been designed to help you document your precious family memories, but are versatile enough to use on any layout, journal, or card project.
The kit contains:
36 Sheets of 12″x12″ patterned paper (2 of each design)
One 3″x4″ photopolymer stamp set
12 3″x4″ watercolor journaling cards
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 20 cardstock stickers
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 15 cardstock die cuts
One 8.5″x11″ sheet of 16 chipboard stickers
Two 6″x12″ sheets of chipboard alphabet stickers
One 5″x6″ sheet of 17 adhesive wood veneers
One 4″x6″ sheet of adhesive enamel dots
One metal die (approx. 3.5″x4.5″)
One roll of washi tape (15mm x 10m)
Here’s how I created this DIY Matchbook Mini Album:
Last week I saw this amazing idea created by Aly from We R Memory Keepers and asked if I could CASE her idea. I love what she created and wanted to give it a try.
For this project, I used one sheet of cardstock from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. It created the cover of the matchbook and the pages inside.
To create the cover, I cut a piece of cardstock to 3 x 9. Scored at 3 5/8, 3 3/4, 7 3/4 and 7 7/8.
To create the pages inside, cutting the same piece of cardstock 9 times to 2 7/8 x 3 7/8.
Cut your photos to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and adhere one to each page. Use the We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile, punch holes at the bottom of each page.
Add word stickers and some of the Our Family Enamel Dots to add texture to each page.
Round the corners of the cardstock and photos using the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.
Punch holes in the bottom portion of the cover and the pages with two brads.
To dress up the cover, add the tree die cut to the front of the matchbook.
Measure the tree and trim it so that the two pieces meet when the matchbook is closed.
Nice and easy!!
