Scoot Mini Album (Echo Park)

Hi Everyone

Please note that the Giveaway previously detailed her has now closed. Winners to be announced Feb 27th.

Scoot Mini Album

This album is great as a gift for someone who does not scrapbook but would still like a memory or keepsake. All the decoration is done and all they need to do is add a few photos and journalling notes.



I created the base of this album using the Spellbinders Square Swatches Dies and the technique shown below.
To create the pages I used a metal die to cut a “sandwich” of thin card (I used cereal boxes) double sided adhesive paper and patterned paper. Simply use the double sided adhesive to attach the paper to the card and run through your manual cutting machine.  If you do not have a machine, just use the same method to cut rectangles with your paper trimmer.


Cut another single layer of paper with the same die and glue to the back so you have a double sided album page with both sides covered in paper. I then punched holes and used a small metal coil to bind it with my Zutter Bind-It-All.

AS you can see below - this technique forms an album that is solid - but not too bulky - think easy for Grandma to slip in her handbag!!

Then I moved down the page and with each picture I looked at I could not choose which one I like the best I would take them all. Unfortunately I don't have a boy to give it to.
