Archiver's annual Scrapfest was held last weekend at the Mall of America and I want to share one of the Make & Take projects sponsored by Karen Foster Design. The fun thing about this layout is that you can fit up to ten 4x6 photos on one 12x12 page.
For the sake of creating a project that met the guidelines in terms of time to complete and budget, I kept the embellishments to a minimum. However, this would be really cute if you dressed up the photos in the flip book with additional tabs, stickers, and other do-dads.
Here is the secret weapon that allows you to place so many photos on the page.
It's a paper spine for a photo flip book and it has all the hallmarks of the type of project I like -- it's easy to make, inexpensive, and functional all at the same time.
Around here, the beginning of fall means the beginning of soccer for at least one of my boys. My oldest first joined a team thirteen years ago and since then I've spent many, many hours on the sidelines cheering them on. (Where's a comb when you need one?☺)
I created this card for the new Karen Foster Design Soccer Collection which was released over the summer. I love to use clip art from the internet as a pattern for designs. This one is from the Microsoft Office online gallery (I rotated the image so you could see the way I used it for the card):
I enlarged the clip art in Microsoft Word and printed it out. I created my round card base out of black cardstock in the same size and then cut out the individual hexagon shapes from the ball. I used each of these pieces as a pattern and cut my scrapbook paper to roughly the same shape and then adhered it in place.
Happy Unofficial First Day of Fall! I love living in a place that experiences all four seasons... but if I had to choose a favorite, fall would be it. Today I'm blogging over at Therm O Web and sharing step-by-step instructions on how to make an autumn banner for your home. Please stop by and say hello.
