Club Scrap Artist Team YouTube Challenge

Hello my crafty friends! I'm so happy you're hopping along on the Club Scrap Artist Team YouTube challenge. If you've come from Hetty's blog then you're in the right place. The Artist Team challenge this month is to visit the Club Scrap YouTube channel, choose a video tutorial with a technique that inspired us, then make a project inspired by that video.

I found a video for this Mini Gift Box. 

I used the October Scandinavia collection to complete my project.

And I made a set of 6 - 4" x 4" cards to go in it.

They fit perfectly inside!

I saw another YouTube video on the channel for Three in a Row Stamping and decided to try it too!

The owl and sentiment are images from the Greeting unmounted rubber stamps available with the collection. 

The sentiment on this card is from the embellishments cut-aparts available with the collection.

I used white embossing powder on this Jumbo unmounted rubber stamped image and heat set it.

The sentiments with this collection are so cute!

I used embossing powder on the flower image too.

Keep hopping and see what Roni found on the Club Scrap YouTube channel.

Have a great day!

Club Scrap Scandinavia Blog Hop and Linky Party

Hello! I'm so glad you're hopping along on the Club Scrap Scandinavia Blog Hop and Linky Party! If you're hopping in order you should have just come from Tricia's blog.  The October Scandinavia collection has cute whimsical designs inspired by Northern Europe.  

I made a really cute little wallet mini-album. It measures 4 3/4"" x 7" all folded up and closed. Here's a great tutorial on this mini.

I just love mini albums that open...and open again ...and open again.

This one does not disappoint! I love all the printed papers with this collection-so cute.

It has 2 accordion folds on each side-perfect for my Sprocket printer 2" x 3" photos! I made a pocket in the center and added a bunch of the embellishment cutapart journaling pieces.

I decorated both sides of the accordion pages for maximum photo space!

For the front closure I used a couple of buttons from a previous kit (I can't remember which one) and attached them with jeweled brads from my stash. Then I tied on a piece of string long enough to wrap around each of the buttons a few times.

Now hop on over to Hetty's blog to see what she made!

Have a great day!

Adorable little Club Scrap Scandinavia Mini-Album

Hi there! This has been the best Fall ever in Upstate NY! Warm temps, sunny days! Love it! It's been hard to come inside and craft but getting the Club Scrap Scandinavia kit made it so much easier! This collection is so cute with whimsical designs and images from Northern Europe. I found this really cute little mini-album made from 1 sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock and decided to give it a try.

Folded up it measures 2 3/4" square. Aaaahhhh how cute is that!

 I chose for mine to flip down but you could also have it open to the left or right. I LOVE that sentiment from the Greeting unmounted rubber stamps with this collection! So Funny!

Then in folds down again. Those felt flowers are so cute and come in white, gray and black.

Then all the side panels fold out. Lots of room in such a tiny little thing!

Then the last panel folds out. 

I found this on Pinterest but the pin was in another language and measured in centimeters. I had to do  little converting but it worked out great.

Start with a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock. Score the 8 1/2" side at 2 7/8" and 5 3/4". 
Score the long side at 2 7/8", 3 1/8", 6", 6 1/4", 9 1/8" and 9 3/8".  Trim out the areas like the photo above. Now from here you can cut some of the side flaps shorter or even fold it over and adhere around the edges to create a little pocket. You can see from my finished piece that I cut the top left and bottom right panels a little shorter and rounded the edges to fit the felt flowers. Then just decorate all the panels however you'd like. I decided to fill every page with stamped images and sentiments from the stamps and cut-aparts from this collection. I'm going to give it a friend on her birthday. 

Close-up of the top spine - love that image from the Art Nouveau unmounted rubber stamps. 
Thanks for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to make something with this adorable Scandinavia collection!

Have a great Day!
