Let's Go Sledding
Hey friends, Inessa Persekian @paperandbling on the blog today and I’m excited to show you a fun mini album documenting a memory of my kids sledding from the year that shall not be named! The Winter Wonder collection was perfect for this and I'm telling you, you need it! I've used it on so many layouts and it can be used for memories beyond winter and snow.
The album is a 6x7.25" spiral bound album that I made from scratch. Start with 2 pieces of chipboard (hint you can use the tab dividers from the 6x8 Sn@p binder albums! From the 6x8 paper pad, choose a variety of the papers and trim to 6X7.25". I used 9 pieces to build the cover and inner pages. Before adhering to the covers (front and inner), I machine stitched a border with white thread.
To decorate the cover, I used the polar bear chipboard frame from the collection and created a sequin shaker. Embellish it with stickers and ephemera to complete the look. The front inside cover has a diagonal pocket created with a piece of the coral paper from the 6x8 paper pad. It's decorated with the 'bundle up' layered chipboard element. For the inside back cover, I used the snowflake stencil and added texture with a mix of different colored textured mousses. It's embellished with a row of trees and a sticker.
For the inner pages, I created a variety of layouts using the 6x8 paper pad and foam sticker, chipboard, journal bits, floral bits and bits & pieces. Take a look at the photos for details. For one of the pages, I created a little pocket, tucking a 4x6 photo of my youngest sledding. The pocket is created by stitching a 2.75X7.25" piece of patterned paper to a 6X7.25" base with white thread. You want to stitch on the top, right and bottom sides so that you can tuck photos or memorabilia on the left.
I also used a few more chipboard frames to create pages inside my book. I sized the photos to match the openings, about 3x4" and also backed each frame with patterned paper. You can use an exacto knife to cut around it for a perfect fit. All in all, I love how this turned out and it's so fun to flip through! Guess what friends, if you'd like to make this project, I have a a full process video for you over on my YouTube channel. Check it out here.
Thank you for reading and I hope this inspires you to create!
Have a fabulous day,
