I rarely make things for myself it seems. THIS is for me though!! It's a cute little coupon book, big enough for big coupons, small enough it won't tale up much room in my purse.
We would have the club meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month it runs (depending on the number of people who sign up) at Country Scrappin'. . Cost would be a 1 time fee of $25, plus each member would have to order $20 each month. Each member would take turns playing hostess so everyone would get a chance for hostess bene's. Children are welcome, but please they should be 14 yrs or older so they can follow along more easily.
There are 8 spots open. If you would be interested please contact myself or Donna. I'll be sending out an email after the 1st of the year with all the details.
Red line tape
3 sheets of 3 colors of 12X12 cardstock or heavy double sided paper (You can use anything, but for the ease of this tutorial I used 3 different colors so you could better see how to put it together.)
Chipboard for front/back covers (approx 5 1/2" squares, 2 pieces)
Extra sheets of coordinating paper to deco covers & insides
Now let's make the album!
Step 1: Cut 6 pieces of CS 11" X 5 3/4" (For this it's red)
Step 2: Cut 6 pieces of CS 9 1/2" X 5 3/4" (For this it's teal)
Step 3: Cut 6 pieces of CS 8" X 5 3/4" (For this it's patterned)
Step 4: Fold all pieces in half. Lengthwise
Step 5: Place Red line tape on the inside ends of the 2 biggest sets of paper. Not the smallest sheets. (In this case it is the red & teal papers)
Step 6: Line of the ends of the largest and middle sheet. Peel away red line layer, and attach.
Step 7: Take the smallest sheet, peel away red line layer on the middle sheet, and attach lined up. It will look like the below picture.
Step 8: Complete with the rest of the 5 sets of papers.
Step 9: Once completed, repeat steps #5-#7 on the other side of papers.
Step 10: Now, you are going to stack them up. All folded ends lined up on top of each other, and the open ends lined up. Take the first group of papers, outline with red line tape, and attach the second group of papers on top. It will look like the below picture after the first 2 sets are attached.
Step 11: Continue until all 6 groupings of papers are attached. One on top of the other. Once they are all attached, you can open it up and you will see why this is called a "STAR ALBUM." You are almost done!
Step 12: Take a length of ribbon, and glue it to the outside, and around, covers of the album. This will be how you keep the album open or closed.
Step 13: Decorate The chip board covers, then attach over the ribbon.
Step 14: Decorate the rest of your mini album and you're done!!
I think the crop is full, but feel free to swing by!
Paper: Pirouette Pink (SU), Basic Black (SU), paper scraps
Ink: Basic Black (SU)
Accessories: ribbon, brad, glitter gems (AC), ZIG marker
Red Line Tape (any width, but I prefer the 1" wide.)
Pocket Calendar (any type, but I hit up our dollar store- great steal!)
Pretty Paper & embellishments
Step 1: Outline the outside of the pocket calendar with red line tape. I do this to give the calendar more weight & durability. The plastic coverings are usually very thin- if you get a cheap calendar. The paper will add bulk- which makes it last forever!
Step 2: Peel off the red protective sheet on the tape, and place paper over the top. Trim paper around the calendar so it is now covered. You can pre cut out the paper, by tracing the calendar as a template. I don't for the pure fact that I can rarely get it centered correctly.
Step 3: Adhere ribbon down the center. I chose to cover most of the ribbon with a coordinating piece of paper. You do not need to do this. I leave enough room at the front so I can tie the ribbon on the front, not the side, so it doesn't get hung up in a bag or purse.
Step 4: Embellish & make it your own!

I'm making a personal order Friday evening, so ring me up, or swing by- if you'd like me to attach your order to mine.
PS: I received my pre-order goodies via Mr. Brown. WAHOOOO!! So sad that I won't get to play till Friday most likely...
I've taken lots of pictures of what I've made, but have only posted a few. This is *the* craft fair around here. Enough that I've stopped doing any others and concentrate on this one alone.
The fair starts at 9am and goes until 5pm (though I left last year around 3 because I sold out!)
Never fear, Mr. Brown (aka UPS man) came with my SS club order from yesterday. Yes, I placed the order yesterday, and yes, I got it today. It's not my fault- my older than dirt corner punch bit the dust, and I *HAVE* to have it to finish a project for Saturday. I almost never pay for next day- I'm too cheap.
Anyhow, it's hear, and after divvying up everything, I realized the sad truth, I ordered no stamps for myself. How is that for sadness? Oh well, corner punch in hand, I shall finish project #5 for Saturday and be happy once again.
I had a lot of fun with this. A friend/neighbor who has been struggling with infertility and trying for a baby as long as we have is expecting. It's been wonderful! She nicknamed her baby "Blueberry" thanks to our doctor. I tried, in vain, to find blueberry fabric, but no such luck. The inner section of the card is lovely- but it's intended for her eyes only... but trust me. :)
Pens (I like RSVP pens, but any will work)
Red Tacky Tape (comes in 4 sizes, I use the widest, and the narrowest)
Tray (something to contain the beads)
Step One: Empty beads into a tray. The cover a pent with the red tacky tape. I use the widest and the narrowest ones. Completely cover what you wish to bead. Don't worry about lining ends up yet.
Step Two: Peel away the red liner. Then take the narrowest tacky tape and make a clean edge at the top and bottom. Peel away liner.
Step Four: Once covered, roll between your palms and roll in beads again. Repeat as needed till pen is covered how you wish.
Once done, they look like this!! It's quick, easy, and everyone loves to write with a happy pen!
Here is a link to the post that someone asked how I did it. I saw it in the gallery at 2 Peas and thought I would figure it out. Fun stuff for sure!!
