Everything ABC's Blog Hop ~ Letter C

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter 'C'.
 This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. 
Whatever the crafter has chosen as their 'C' element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at 
Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy 

If you came from Darlys blog ~  Crafty Happy then you're on the right track!

I love Camping ~ and I am sharing that love using the Camper Crazy stamp set

I made 2 projects for the letter "C"

Here are a couple of cards that I have made using 
Chalk It Up Paper

 Card 1
~ Card 1 open ~

These cards are a standard top fold card
mounted on a B&T base 5 x 6

 Can you see how when the card is open the background mat frames the inside? Cool right?

Card 2 ~

Then I decided to make an album for  my Camping pictures 
from this past summer with the girls! 

First I create my project, then print pictures for inside,to the size needed & only the pictures I need ~ no waste in printing 

 Let's untie that ribbon & see what this mini album is all about...

Front Cover page

 Unfold a page

Inside pocket page 1

So do you like the edge of the photo mat having a scalloped edge?
or rather it be plain ready for pictures?

Back page 2 
 This is one of the back pages without a pocket so I added the camper gluing only one side & the bottom so I could slip in a photo mat & a tag for journaling.

unfold one more page

Inside pocket page 2
Another Pocket page ~ this time with a plain edge Kraft page inserted

Back page 1
 Another back page with no pocket ready for a camping picture

  1. Cute cards! Love this stamp set.

  2. Great cards and mini album. I love this stamp set and really need to use it now!

  3. What a great little album! I love all the special touches you gave it!

  4. clever cards, I like how they stand up and are framed when closed. The mini album is also clever and I do like the scallped edges. variety is good. Clever to use envelopes to create pockets and pages for the mini album. I need to get that stamp set. :-)

  5. Love the fold out album! Great idea. Would be cool for a little girls birthday or special event for her to record what was special to her that day too! Thank you for sharing and sparking my brain!
