Welcome to the Club Scrap Creative License Blog Hop!
I am so excited to share the creation I made using the Creative License kit. It's a very versatile kit that has a masculine feel to it which is nice when you live with a bunch of guys (Dh & 2 sons). It's packed with some really graphic grungy prints in some great colors.
The kit comes with a mini album project using some neat chipboard CD folders which I had planned to make until I came up with another idea.... I was inspired to make a small album specifically for the small square photos like you'd see on instagram or similar photo apps. This album is small enough it can be carried in your purse or back pocket but holds loads of pics.
Best part is - the base is made from a 8 3/4" x 12" sheet of cardstock and it's quick and easy to make. Of course I used lots more papers decorating the inside and out but it's not necessary...if you want just a simple quick album this is it. (Cut instructions at the bottom.)
I left the front license plate blank because I am going to give this album away! I wanted the recipient to be able to personalize it to their own needs/tastes.
The album is about 3" square and has a tie closure.
Untie the bow and the top flips up...
And then the bottom flips down...
and another flap flips down!
(the ruler is there to hold all the little flaps closed for now)
There are 8 pages that open - 4 to the right and 4 to the left...
Till you finally have the album completely open. There are 24 areas that you could add photos if you'd like. Lots of real estate for all sorts of memories! I went ahead and decorated them with an assortment of papers and cut-aparts from the kit... and it's so easy to make!
Trim a piece of cardstock to 8 3/4" x 12"
Position the paper in a landscape fashion in your Scor-Pal;
score the cardstock at the following:
Rotate the paper so it is portrait oriented in the Scor-Pal;
score the cardstock 2 3/4" from each edge.
Crease all of the folds.
Trim away the tiny 1/4" strips on the two outside edges as shown.
This will create the pages for each segment of the album.
All that's left to do is to decorate it to your hearts content!

Simple leave a comment telling us about your most memorable moment in a car....
remember - keep it clean out there - lol!!!
You have until June 6th to share your memory!
I'll share mine...it was when Dad was teaching me how to drive. Dad had me drive over to Eric's (future DH) grandma's house. First let me say that the car Dad bought me was a boat....well, more like a SHIP - it was a 70's Ford LTD. It was about 3x long as it was wide. Anyway, on with the story... It went fine until we were going to leave...I whipped that puppy around an backed right into Eric's brand new Ford F250!
OMG - talk about embarrassing...my first thought was damn - Dad's going to kill me - then of course instantly my next thought was oh shit! I hit Eric's new baby!!! I thought for sure he'd get mad ~ but young love - he didn't say a word which was a relief. It didn't do much damage other than scuff the bumper on the car so it wasn't a big deal other than scaring the crap out of me. Dad on the other hand....he didn't say a word either but trust me - that was NOT a good thing. Needless to say it was a few days before I was allowed to get behind the wheel again ;) LOL!!!
So there you have it, Eric still reminds me of it every so often....and it's been over 30 years. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to live that one down.
You've heard my most memorable (and embarrassing) moment in a car - now it's your turn! Come on...you've got one too...let's hear it!
