Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!
Back in September I shared pix of the album I created for my nephew Daniel, and I've been meaning to share a pictorial since then. Well, all good things come to those who wait and today's the day! Grin.
By its nature this project uses a LOT of card, both for the base, which is what I'm sharing today and for the other elements, some of which I'll share with you on Monday. The amount depends on how many pages you want in your album. Today's example uses 9 sheets for the pages, plus another for the cover...
Card: 5" x card length for all except ONE of the pages, so 8 in this case. 5" x 10" piece for the last page and 5" x 11" for the cover
Tools: Simply Scored and stylus
Adhesives: Tombow OR other wet glue. You COULD use tape, but having wriggle room is better.
Score the full length pieces at 5" and 10"
Fold and burnish each to create a V shape
Make sure all your pieces are facing the same way. Using your Simply Scored to help keep everything square, apply glue to the flap and attach the next page
Finish with the folded and burnished 10" long piece and you'll have something like this
Again using your Simply Scored to help keep things lined up, attach the pages so that the tabs are next to the spine and the last page folds out to the right
Here you can see the tabs
So far everything fits nicely into the spine. Yep, it wouldn't stay that way, but it's an easy enough fix
