Celebrate! Club Scrap Blog Hop

Welcome friends - it's time to Celebrate!
Celebrate with the 200th Club Scrap Kit that is!

This kit - Celebrate - was so much fun, filled with lots of bright colors and cool patterns. While I was thinking about projects to make using this kit I was inspired by Karen and this months Technique Challenge on the Club Scrap Blog - Origami Folded Elements. I knew right away I wanted to make a mini album so I put on my thinking cap and decided upon a Squash Book, not the fruit (did you know squash was considered a fruit?)...the origami folded variety.

I used the black circle/mandala print for the covers of the book and the sentiment from the Unmounted Stamp sheet is perfect. 

I decided that instead of the usual 4x4 or 3x3 book I would go with full 12x12" sheets which when fully opened makes this book about 33-34" across!  It's a whopper with lots of room for all sorts of photos and journaling.  

I love the black/silver flourish was the perfect accent for the bright turquoise and orange cardstock.  The two white triangles actually have grey text over the entire page but it just didn't show up in the photo.

Flip the open book up and you've got even more room to embellish.  I wanted a little something different on the back so I stamped my own flourish print using stamps from the UM and Art Nouveau stamps sheets and Silver Delicata ink from IMAGINE Crafts. The grey triangles were also stamped with circle images from the kit paired with Club Scrap Ash ink. I left the orange print show through because it was just too pretty to cover up!

Give-Away Time!!

All folded up this book measures 6.5" square.  A really nice size to hold lots of memories and to share which is what I'd like to do with this album!  Simply leave a comment about what your favorite part of the kit is or what event you'd like to use this album for and you'll be entered to win!

You have until February 1st to post your comment to be entered to win!

Please don't consider me for this drawing I just wanted to tell you how much I liked your book.

  18. Roni - your books are always so creative! I would load it with pics of my son's first year at college (OK, so he would have to give them to me first...) Thanks for offering!

  19. Out of the park, as usual! Love the origami!
