Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a very fun and festive Halloween inspired project created with the fabulous new Land of Wonder Collection and my We R Envelope Punch Board. I really love the look of the tabbed detail so I used it quite a bit through this book.
I am all for non traditional color schemes for the holidays and purple and green are fabulous when paired with black for the book base and die cuts.
The best way to know you will get a perfect match for the flowers on your projects is to make them out of the collection papers. Just use whatever flower die you have on hand and some shaping tools to create coordinating flowers. I’ve layered my handcrafted ones with the BoBunny Blooms and tucked in some small loopy bows of burlap string.
For the focal image here on the cover I fussy cut an image from the cut apart sheet leaving the thick black border then used my Sticky Thumb adhesive dots to pop it up and create depth. There’s a doily here as well cut from black cardstock using the Mandala Doily die layered with a gorgeous butterfly from the Noteworthy Collection, a coordinating brad, and some dots from the matching Thickers.
The brads also work so well in the centers of the flowers. Love the glitter and sparkle!
The inside cover has an additional flap on each side to open giving this mini a mega amount of room to fill up with pictures and journaling. I’ve used the Envelope Punch Board again to create that tabbed detail for the base as well as the patterned papers.
This collection has so many gorgeous journal cards I could not decide so I packed in as many as I could. Creating tip ins is a great way to utilize the entire image and add even more real estate!
For the very inside pages I’ve taken advantage of the patterned paper with larger images on a neutral background to provide room for pictures that can be journaled right on the paper. The inside of the flaps have coordinating papers matted in the cardstock then topped off with image flags from the die cut selection. They are attached only at the top so pictures can be slid underneath for a layered look.
The tip ins all have spacers to provide the bulk needed to retain the shape of the book. The Thickers are so pretty and sparkly and make great page titles.
I always include a clip so that items can be added without adhering them permanently. This way if photos have writing on the back you can access it by sliding it in and out from the clip. It’s also a great place to add mementos.
You can see how all the page flips work together to create a generous amount of room inside to scrapbook with favorite holiday pictures and memories.
