I am so excited that I am the guest crafter today on Georgiana's blog Carson's Cricut Creations. For my appearance I made a booklet that we will take with us on our trip to Ontario next week. I have been seeing those 'smash books' popping up and really liked the idea. I don't actually want to take glue and supplies on vacation (well... I do lol, but am not allowed and won't have much down time) so I decided to make a book with pockets that I can just tuck all our brochures and ticket stubs in and then I will have them all in one place when I need them for creating my scrapbook afterwards. I have not decided yet but I might even use this book as a mini book afterwards.
To create this book I used the same template as my card organizer/holder that I made a while ago. The measurements of the book are 8" by 7" with 4" deep pockets.The link for that book is here if you would like to take a look. I also made a video of the card book and a demo on how to cut down and fold one of the pages so that you can make your own if you wish. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the video.
For my book I used all patterned scrap paper. This helped out a bit on my mission to use my scraps up! I did cut one 12 x 12 piece down just for the cover because I didn't have any more big scraps that I liked enough for the cover after completing the inside pages but not bad considering :) The title on the front is stickers from my stash and little pieces of ribbon are all from my older stash of ribbon. The date stamp is from Elle's Studio. My favourite stamp in the whole wide world! (followed very closely by many others I assure you)
One more thing before you go....see the felt flower on the front? I got the Cuttlebug scallops dies on clearance recently and went crazy one night making these. They were so easy and I just love them! Would you like to win some? For your chance to win just comment on this post with your contact information :)
