Today is a new Inspiration Tuesday by one of my very special guests and all I can say is that you're going to love this one :) Her name is Anne-Lise, she's french and one of my most favorite scrappers. Her style never ceases to amaze me and I have to say that I'm in love with the project she has made for you today :)esp. that she scrapbooked about the palce I live, Montpellier and South of France :)
First of all, thank you Céline for inviting me today, I hope you guys are going to love my project.
To celebrate Céline's beautiful region, I made a mini album which size (6"x7") about our latest vacation in Montpellier and by focusing on 4 main landscapes there : the beaches in la Grande Motte, the vineyards, Camargue and the lake of Salagou (sooo beautiful by the way!)
TEchnique wise, I wanted to explore my BIg Shot the best way I can, so I used it to create my mini album shape, cut with it and embossed with it.
Here's what we're gonna make...
2 pieces of cardboard size 6"x7"
1 woodlike cardstock (available here : la fée du scrap)
1 Lime Green cardstock
4 white Bazzil
Patterened papers (My Minds Eye collection "So Sophie")
Assorted Bazzill cardstocks (brown, lime green, and different shades of blue)
Tim Holtz Dies ("Brackets" & "Ornemental")
Quickutz Alpha Dies alphabet : DIESEL
nestabilities Die (label n°8)
Cuttlebug embossing pads
1 landscape format : 6"x7" (cover photo)
4 landscape format : 5,5"x7"
5 portrait format : 5,5x4"
4 portrait format : 2,36"x1,5"
8 polaroids (small)
1 - Structure
For the main cover, the cardboard is covered by cardstock. Use Tim Hotlz die to cut the frame into it, adhere to cover and décorate your cover.
Don't forget to add your eyelet before glueing the paper on.
Same thing with the back cover : add cardstock and eyelet then glue onto cardboard.
2 - Inside pages
Here, a transparency is attach on top of a beautiful photo (that you can see through the cover by the way).
For all of the other pages, the order is always the same : double page with a flap, Bazzill page, double page with a flap, etc...
Glue a picture onto your white page (cut the bracket with a Tim Holtz die).
Cut the photo so that you have another piece of it glued on the left page (a Bazzill page).
And this is what the album looks like :)
On each flap, I added a colorful embossed cardstock to give contrast and color to my album.
I printed some digi stuff on some of my pages before cutting them, but feel free to stamp instead!
Now it's time for you to embellish and have fun!
Thank you Anne-Lise for your wonderful project!
Quickly go and visit her blog : it is SO worth seeing!
Have a good day!
