10 Weeks of Halloween: Week 3
Spooky Flip Album
These albums are so fun and extremely easy to make. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Witches Brew Designer Series paper and part of the kit from the Halloween Banner Simply Created Kit. But you could easily create your own using coordinating card stock, patterned paper and punches instead.
On this page I used a couple pieces of Witches Brew Washi Tape.
Again I used a couple pieces of the Witches Brew Washi tape, I LOVE how it all coordinates....makes it easy!
I used one of the black Vintage Faceted buttons that come in the Halloween Banner Kit, and the cut the saying from the Witches Brew Designer Series paper. Very cute!!
This page will be the page the paper that is seen the most when the book is closed, so I really liked this paper here. Don't you love the Monster Munchies in the corner!! Again just simply cut from the Witches Brew paper, and used one of the yellow buttons from the Halloween Banner Kit.
Here I used the bat from the Halloween Kit and cut more fun saying out of the Witches Brew Paper. I cut a circle out to resemble a moon. :)
This is probably my favorite!! It kinda cracks me up when I look at it! Very fun! (at the end I have more close up pic) I used ribbon and buttons from the Halloween Banner and the Caramel apple saying from the Witches Brew Designer Paper.
This page I used the Witches Brew Washi Tape, a couple of buttons from the Halloween Kit and another adorable design from the Witches Brew Designer paper!!
Choose two different colors of 12 X 12” card stock and cut them in half. You only
need one of each color (two different colored pieces measuring 6 X 12”).
Next choose two sheets of 12 X 12” patterned paper and cut them in half. You will
only use one of each of these too. This entire album is made with just four 6” X 12”
Decide which of these 4 pages will be your front, 2 middle pieces and your back
page. ***Your last or back and the very front page are the same piece after it is
scored and folded.
I like to start with card stock for my front and back as it’s thicker and more sturdy.
Next is patterned paper, then card stock, then patterned paper for the center layer.
Score the pieces as follows:
1. Page 1 (front and back layer is card stock). Score it at both 2 3/4 and again at
3”. (this is Pumpkin Pie)
2. Page 2 is patterned paper. Score at both 3 ½” and again at 3 3/4”
3. Page 3 is card stock. Score at both 4 ¼” & 4 ½”. (this is Slate Gray)
4. Page 4 is patterned paper. Score at both 5” and 5 ¼”
Fold on the score lines and layer these
four sheets of card stock and patterned
paper together to form a book like shown.
Punch two holes in the binding with a
Crop-o-Dile (or a 1/8” or ¼” circle punch).
Thread the ribbon through these holes
and tie a knot on the outside of the book. I used the ribbon from the Halloween Banner Kit.
Now you’re ready to decorate your book. I started by decorating my front page first
and deciding which die-cuts I wanted to use from the Halloween Banner Kit. Decide if you are spelling a word or just using decorative tabs on each page. There are 8 pages total so you could spell an 8 letter word .(spooky is actually 7,and it worked great!). Layer the letters so they can be used at tabs to turn the pages. To make the letters look extra snazzy I used the new Silver Foil behind the letters!! Kinda cool!
Position your letters and adjust them to your liking, I actually placed the first 2 letters on the first page, it made my letters flow nicely. Once my tabs were decided on, I then moved to the inside of my pages. I love the Witches Brew Paper, it has plenty of fun sayings. I simply cut out words, and used a few pieces (buttons, ribbon pieces) from the Halloween Banner kit, and that's it!! Pretty simple!!
***Before I decided the arrangement of the album, where the letter "K" is, happens to be the paper that will have the most visualization. I chose the skull paper because the graphic was large and it seemed to fit well! Any combo will work, that's just what I did! :)
Here are some close up views.
This is actually a pretty fast project, the kit and the paper really make it easy! If you would like to order click here
Have a great (and Spooky... ha-ha!) day!!
