During CHA, Laura Denison of Following the Paper Trail and I discussed the idea of doing a scrapbook challenge. The idea was for us each to create from the same list of ingredients, similar to the television show Iron Chef. Graphic 45 heard about the idea and offered to provide the "ingredients" in the form of a box of supplies.
Well, Laura and I have been working hard to make some wonderful projects for you, and today the results of all our hard work are available for you to enjoy over on the Graphic 45 blog. Pictures and video of my two projects are below, but be sure to also stop by the Graphic 45 blog and Laura's blog for more visual treats & a chance to win some cool products!
For my first project, I used the 5"x8" Kraftboard Altered Art Box w/ Album to create an album in a box. I decorated this box with the "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" papers and embellishments. I really enjoyed the whimsical images and bright colors of this collection. It's perfect for creating a box of treasures!
For my second project, I used the "Curtain Call" paper collection. I decided to make a set of three hardbound photo albums from scratch using these warm and neutral pages. The three books fit neatly into a chipboard sleeve, creating a boxed set of albums to display on a shelf. They look so polished sitting there!
To show the original box of ingredients, as well as for a more detailed look at the projects, I uploaded a video over on my YouTube channel. You can watch it below, or follow this link to watch on YouTube: Graphic 45 Scrap Off Video.
An instruction manual is now available for this "Boxed Set" album technique here: http://www.kathrynscraps.com/#!shop/c1nqyKathryn's Shop.
I hope you enjoyed these projects. Be sure to check out Laura's projects at Following the Paper Trail and Graphic 45's blog to see what else was created with these awesome products! There's also a chance to win some prizes, so be sure to leave some love. ;D
