Hidden Mini-Album For Sept Scrapbook Parade Class

Front angled to see right side closure

WARNING: Tons of pics to show all the details of this project.

This class isn't scheduled at Scrapbook Parade until September, but as I'll be very busy I wanted to get this posted and out of the way.

This is two 8 X 8 inch canvases (which are perfect for the 8 x 8 pad) that have been hinged together back to back. By having them back to back there is a space about 4 1/2 inches square and deep enough to hold a six page stack-the-deck mini-album.
It would be fun to share with you the details on how zoned into this project I was and that I worked through the night without realizing the time until I noticed that it was beginning to get light outside! LOL. But that would take up to many words and too much of your time!

There are a lot of pics which I have kept to a minimum for you, and at the end you'll find a YouTube slideshow with many more details showing all the tags on each page. The tags that are to go inside each envelope page have not been made,yet, as the class participants can easily make them at home on their own time.

Here goes.

Did you notice the cute little legs?

 In this somewhat fuzzy photo you can barely see some of the Glossy Accents that I used on the text and some of the flowers. I also used it on parts of the woman's hat and feathers, her belt, umbrella and shoes as well as the rose laying at the bottom of the paper. Very effective in real life.

Open and laying flat


Next is a collage of photos showing each page as turned. All the tags are more visible in the YouTube slideshow after the collage.


I had so much fun making this project, and I hope you enjoyed all the photos. Now here's the YouTube slideshow.


Thank you so much for spending some time with me today, and as always, happy crafting!

When I saw this album displayed at Scrapbook Parade, the first thing that came to my mind was "I hope I have not missed this class!". I instantly fell in love with this album and had Carol put my name down for the September class to make sure I don't miss it. Sabrina, you have crazy fantastic talent and are so kind to share this special gift with the rest of us. Looking forward to making this album under your careful guidance at class.

Sincerely,
Trish
