“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 17th April 2014

The day that Cyclone Ita hit!!!
We were smack bang in the middle of craft class, when the 1st power cut hit at 2pm, and we were without power for about 45 minutes.
Luckily we weren't using any electricity other than lighting on today’s project.
The second power cut hit at 8.15pm and fortunately all those that had booked for the evening class had cancelled, as some of the roads were out due to trees falling over!


Thursday’s class we had a full house with Bev, Jenny, Lizzy, Raewyn, Ruth, and Sue in attendance.


We made a cute “Envelope Scrapbook Album”, with the help of my new Zutter!!!


I made 3 samples in advance using Designer Series Paper “Watercolor Wonder”, and retired but available on the Clearance Rack “Beau Château”, “Tea For Two” and this afternoon, because I couldn’t help myself and it’s Easter, I made another using the “Cheerful Treat” DSP!!!


The Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board is used to make 8 envelopes. The cardstock started out as 6”x6” and matched on the Board to make an envelope to fit a 3”x4” card. The first score mark is at 2 5/8”.
Crumb Cake is used for the cover of the Album, and I experimented with stamping in “Sahara Sand” the “En Francais” and “Hardwood” background stamps.


“Watercolor Wonder” Designer Series Paper



The “Needlepoint Border” Embossing Folder are featured and brushed with Ink, from either of Island Indigo, Sahara Sand, and Soft Suede.
“Natural Composition Specialty” is sponged with Island Indigo or Soft Suede, then the “Scalloped Tag Topper” Punch is used at both ends. Add some gorgeous “Crochet Trim”, add a bow of either Bakers Twine or Twine, and add a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets.

The Sentiment is then layered on top …
On “Naturals White”, the sentiment is from the “Geometrical” stamp set, and hand coloured using a combination of Old Olive, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso Stampin’ Markers. Using the “Chalk Talk” Framelits and Big Shot, cut out the sentiment, then add a cute little Antique Brad, and some Pearls to the “o”s, and then layer on Dimensionals.


“Tea For Two” Designer Series Paper, 
retired but available on the Clearance Rack



A line of cute ribbon in “Ruffle Stretch Trim” in Baked Brown Sugar, and on the retired Beau Chateau Album, I have used the retired “Pleated Satin” ribbon in Blushing Bride, is placed on the bottom edge of the Album{S}. The Cheerful Treat Album, has Strawberry Slushy Ruffle Stretch Trim.

After using the Zutter to bind the Album, I have tied various ribbons in “Stretch Ruffle Trim”, “Chevron Ribbon” and “Stitched Grosgrain” to the coils.
To finish the project off, each Album has a matching Pen, with a piece of matching DSP Cardstock cut 4.5’x1/2” and is placed around the outside of the pen and inserted into the barrel.


Wah lah “Envelope Scrapbook Album” done!
