This is Project #28 for Day 3 of the LLC Retreat: This is a mini album designed by Sue Kohler. Her blog is called My Inner reflection and can be found here. This last project was a class - the most amazing class to finish off the 3 day event! Finished project size is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 1/2". Most of the paper pieces have been lightly sponged with either Rangers Distress Black Soot ink or Walnut Stain Ink. The Eiffel Tower was part of the original design positioned on the left side of Scooter Marci - this finished project is generic.
Top view of spine: a narrow strip of pattern paper (The Art of Life) with a bow made using the Speak Bubble from the Stitched Elements. The "knot" in the center is made by using the Flag Die from the Stitched Elements: clever, eh? The handle is made using a 1/4" black satin ribbon.
Pocket Purse Album overhead view opened:
Scooter Marci sits on a Stitched Nested Circle which has been trimmed. The trimmed section is used for the front cover tab: Copic colors for scooter changed to the following: W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7. Color her, trim and pop her with foam squares. Rolled Roses Medium and Small are on the right side of Scooter Marci.
Left side front cover: Berry Flourish, Open Flourish die and Large Flourish die cut in multiple pattern papers. Amongst this assortment of dies is also the Feathers die. On top is the Key (and Lock) die. The Key is die cut 3 times for that chipboard effect. Tie a natural twine around the Key gives a nice finishing touch. Paper flowers and Rolled Roses finish the embellishing of this front cover.
This is the front bottom flap with the remnants of the trimmed down Stitched Circle used underneath Scooter Marci. Add a magnet and ribbon pull in between the card stock edge.
Pull open the front cover to reveal: a pages decorated with Honeycomb and honeycomb pieces. On this page is the Open Leaf Flourish, Feather, Key dies used. On the bottom edge: Large Lacey Border (in Black card stock) and Small Lacey Border (Kraft card stock). Finish the bottom edge with a small Nested Circle and Stitched Element (cut in half).
Opening up he album: on the right side is a pocket. Pocket edge is the Small Lacey Border. The smallest strip from the Stitched Ribbons die is used at the bottom of the pocket. Topiary Dies cut in pattern paper with 1/8" wide satin ribbon tied at the trunks are popped with foam squares. Detail on the clock inserted in the pocket below:
Steampunk Clock is cut in black card stock, matted on Kraft and Black card stock using the Stitched Nested Circle die. Add black adhesive pearls to the clock numbers with a adhesive pearl on the center. The white satin ribbon pull tab is colored using Copic E84. Clock insert is using the Arched Window die cut in black card stock. This is popped with foam squares and is actually a note closure. The Arched Window flips open for a photo.
On the left side: a 5" x 5" side open pocket with a acetate window. On top of the window is a Winged Heart sitting on top of the Stitched Ribbon.
Left side bottom corner: Heart Scroll Corner is added.
Left side: pull the tab (made using Stitched Elements die) to reveal a 4-3/4" x 4-3/4" photo page. Inside mat is 2-3/4" x 2-3/4: with a die cut Honeycomb embellishing the left side.
The inside (which is the purse bottom) spine is 1-1/2" wide. Cut the (Hanging Hearts and) Love Word twice. Offset to achieve the look shown below:
