Hey- Hey all!
Have you ever destroyed a paper pack? By that I mean in a good way. Using the
ENTIRE paper pad until there is nothing left BUT scraps? Well, that is just what
I did. You remember last week I talked about the Joyous
paper collection by Authentique? I made the Christmas
Home Decor. I love the paper and it was all so very handy with basically any
type of project. I decided to see how many projects I can make with it. So,
let's count :)
I first started out with a paper bag mini album. If you're looking for
something quick and easy to complete in a sitting, this one is my favorite go-to
mini's to make. I used black Recollections paper bags and made some chipboard
covers. I added some colored balls and black flat back pearls to the cover. I
let the paper and the die cuts do the rest.
Here is the inside of the mini album. It has 5 pages, complete with tag
inserts that can hold 4 large photos each! I have also included some extra tags
inside the front and back pockets. See how this paper collection/die
cuts can do so much?
Up next is a book card that I made. You can find the tutorial here for this type of
card. Again, I used the paper collection to do most of the work. I cut slim
strips and curled them with my pencil to add interest. I also made a couple
ribbon banners out of the scrap strips. I used another Michaels pick to make a
floral assortment in the corner. Some crochet dollies, bling trim, seam
binding and lace complete this look. On the inside, I added more lace and trim
and popped a die cut from the collection on pop
dots to add dimension. I enjoyed making this book card.
Up next are a few cards that I made with the left overs. You can do a lot
with the unused journal spots or images from a paper collection. At the very
least, make a couple of 3x3 note cards to send to family and friends. I'm sure
that they will love the gesture!
So if we count
last week's post of the home decor, the mini album, the book card and the
additional cards - we have a WIN WIN!! Im planning on selling these items at my
upcoming craft fair. I really feel like Authentique did a good job on creating
versatility with this Joyous paper collection. KUDOS!
I hope you are able to grab this
collection at Scrapyland and make some of these
quick and easy projects for your family and friends! Until next time,
