"Grace"--One Paper, One Album

Wednesday Greetings!
I am along today to share my latest project/tutorial that's now up at 
This mini album has been made with only ONE sheet of 12x12 patterned paper!
I've used the gorgeous "Grace" Collection which is simply a must-have for any upcoming Mother's Day gifts.

Grace: One Paper, One Album
To start, we'll begin with a single 12x12 double-sided patterned paper (I've used Grace's Delicate);  the quality of Authentique's papers are especially perfect for this project. Next, you will need a scoring board and tool, scissors or paper-trimmer and high-tack adhesive.

 Score paper at 3", 6" and 9" marks; turn paper and score down the middle at 6"
Note the solid markings above are the score marks and the dash lines denote where the paper will be cut (although you will actually cut up to the 3" mark).

 Fold paper accordion style as shown; note that the left side of the paper is the area that will 
still be intact at the top.

 Next, you will want to grab the high-tack adhesive and attach to the back-side of the patterned paper as shown.  We don't want our album to go awry, so pay special attention to which sides attach to which.
2- Adhere TOP piece (with adhesive) to the 3rd panel from the TOP LEFT
3-Adhere BOTTOM piece (with adhesive) to the 2nd panel from the BOTTOM LEFT
 Your album should now look like this.  Time to start embellishing!
  Keep in mind that you probably don't want to use anything too bulky for the insides, so really dress up the cover with some chunky flowers and trims that mom will love :)

Here are photos of how I decorated the inside pages of my album.  I incorporated all of the goodies from the Grace Collection: Foundations Cut-Apart 12x12 Paper; 6x12 Component Stickers and Puzzle Pieces.

 That's eight pages to add photos and journaling to!  The finished album size will be 3"X 6" when closed.
The 8x8 Bundle papers are perfect for making the page's mats from.  I also distressed around the edges of the lighter colored mats with a walnut ink.
I made this album over a month ago and it's still holding together beautifully.
I have a brand new fondness for Sookwang Adhesive...this stuff is amazing!
I purchase mine from Scrapbooker's Emporium.

Authentique Products: Grace Collection- Delicate Patterned Paper; Foundations Cut-Apart 12x12 Paper; 6x12 Component Stickers;  Puzzle Pieces; 8x8 Bundle and Paper Crafting Assortment.
Beginning tomorrow through Thursday the Authentique Design Team is teaming up 
with Taylored Expressions' Design Team to bring two days worth of inspiration!
There will also be giveaways, so please join us :)
I will be sharing on Friday, so I'll see you then!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
