Hi All! Hopefully you're enjoying this beautiful spring weather we're having. When it's not windy, I love to take my scrappy materials outside, breathe in the fresh air, and really see how my scrappy bling sparkles in the sunlight. Anyone with me? Anyone? LOL
Today, as promised, I'm sharing another section from my greeting card envelope album. This section highlights all the work, and fun, my Phi Theta Kappa alumni association accomplished at a recent student leadership event.
As you can see, I used Moxxie's Winterland collection as the base for this section. Even though the event was held in October, ice skating and Frozen were running themes throughout the weekend so I wanted to capture that with my materials. However, I also worked in elements from Moxxie's new Volleyball line to highlight some of the key moments of our "down" time.
For my journaling, I wrote out a card and placed a picture on the back of it. Then I attached a vellum pocket to the page and placed the journal card inside. This way, when somebody pulls the card out, they can still see the skates behind the envelope.
I tried to keep the back side of the insert as simple as possible because the front already has a ton of layers. One thing about this type of mini album is that it bulks up fast! Or, it may just be that I have a secret obsession with foam tape - that isn't too much of a secret, though.
Again, I opted to stay with Moxxie's Winterland collection, using the a-side of Frozen. I used a strip of washi tape to give some foundation for the Moxxie Grey alpha stickers to create my title. I can honestly say that I LOVE the Moxxie Grey alpha stickers. They just seem to match everything.
Alright, scrappy friends! I hope you like this section of my album and get inspired to make your own. It's a great project and so easy to fill!!
Hi everyone! Renee from Scrap Owl is back with you today to share a page from a mini album I've put together for my Phi Theta Kappa alumni association.
Late last year we went bowling as part of a state-wide fellowship event. Different groups from all over the state went bowling at different locations and shared their experiences on social media. While it isn't as great as seeing everyone in person, it was nice to see how everyone was enjoying the same activity at the same time. All the while I kept thinking, "Moxxie's Bowler Up is going to be perfect to scrap these pictures!" What can I say? I'm a scrapaholic!
I've constructed the foundation of the album using large greeting card envelopes. I've pulled off the flaps and bound them together using my Cinch. Now, each two page "layout" also has a pocket for an additional page. It's a great way to scrap a lot of memories in a small space.
I used Moxxie's Let's Bowl as the base for the two page spread and then accented it with Moxxie's Strike b-side. All the embellishments are from Moxxie's Bowler Up Element Sticker set. I also used the b-side of the "Let's Bowl" for my journaling.
As for the insert, I used the a-side and b-side of Moxxie's Fine Fashion to show off our after hours fun and our beautiful shoes! Again, I also used Moxxie's Bowler Up Element Sticker set to embellish the page. Here's a secret - see that "Rented Shoes" sticker? It's actually much bigger than that. I cut out the words from the sticker and used them on one side of the insert and then used the shoes and swirls as a border for a picture on the other side of the insert! #stretchingyourstash
I can't wait to show you what other Moxxie Madness I've added to this book. It's been so much fun completely making an album like this and Moxxie's themed papers have made it super simple. Stay tuned!
Today is the last day to enter our Winterland giveaway. Just comment on this post to be entered.
It's the end of a long holiday weekend for me. I had four days off for Thanksgiving and I have had a wonderful time! Hope your holiday was fabulous too!
Today I want to share a mini album I made using both Forever Fall and Autumn Glory. The acorn shaped chipboard album has been in my stash for a long time, so long I am uncertain who gave it to me, but I do remember it was something given to me and not an item I purchased myself. That is another thing to be thankful for right there, great scrappy friends!
I heat embosed several metallic shades on the album cover to give it richness. The small photos were matted on kraft tags, which is a great use for any extra tags you have lying around!
It's neutral enough to go with any team colors, but vibrant enough to feel modern and different than every other volleyball paper. When I got my hands on Volleyball, the first thing I did was ask my niece for some of her volleyball photos. When I got them, I knew a single layout or two just wouldn't do her pictures justice, so I decided to make volleyball accordion album.
I love accordion albums, because you can make them just about any size you want. This album (folded up) is 4" x 5".
I also love them because you have so much space to work with.
Since this is for my niece, I left the journaling space blank so she can write whatever she wants there.
I also love that you can set accordion albums out to be displayed or folded up like a book.
Now all I need to do is pass this off to my niece so she can enjoy it!
