This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

I recently joined the creative team for a local scrapbooking store called Life’s Journey Scrapbooking.  This is the first project I made for the store.  It’s a terrific little chunky album with 31 pages in it.  Most of them are created using clear plastic as the base so that I could see both sides of the double-sided papers I was given to use.

The challenge kit included some awesome papers from Dream Street Papers LLC and Imaginisce, along with a collection of ribbons and buttons and a Maya Road canvas-covered mini album.  I added several other embellishments, a few stamps I picked up from the store, and the clear plastic pages – to make sure I had enough to fill all the pages I wanted for the book.

I dyed the canvas cover and the two canvas pockets using watered down re-inker.  I also had enough of the solution to make some papers up in the same color and then I used them on the inside of the book.   Here’s a few pictures of the finished journal along with a video showing you what the interactive pages look like.  Enjoy.

I made the book to be filled with pictures and journaling in December 2011 because I won’t get to use it this year as it will be on display in the scrapbook store all through the month.

Each page has space available for photos and journaling.  They are interactive with fun little pockets, flaps, removable tags, and framed windows.  I just love how chunky this book turned out!

It will be fun to add my personal stuff come next December!  To Shannon and all the other gals at Life’s Journey Scrapbooking – Thanks for letting me play along.  It was fun and I look forward to the next creative challenge.

Added Note: I had to remove the video for now.  Seems to be a glitch in it.  I’ll re-upload it when I get it fixed.  Sorry.
