Authentique Nightfall Halloween Treat Box Mini Album Kit

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Treat Box Mini Album Kit for Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Now that the month of September has rolled around, it’s time to get ready for Halloween!  This Authentique Nightfall Halloween Treat Box Mini Album Kit is one of my favorite ever designs.

As I share it with you here today, I can finally announce that I will be designing scrapbooking kits and tutorials for Button Farm Club.  If you’re not familiar with the Button Farm Club, you really should check it out!  They offer fabulous scrapbooking kits and supplies using all our favorite papers!  I’m really honored to be part of the team, and I think you are going to go batty over this project!  It’s pretty doggone spooktacular.

You get everything you need to make this project in the kit, except for basic supplies like adhesives, black paint and tools.  Even the chipboard covers and black cardstock come in the kit.  This means that when your kit arrives, you can dig in and start creating.  The base is a high quality wooden cigar box.    My thought for this kit was to create a home decor piece that would last for years to come.

The top of the box is a fun easel card design.  Open it for display, then close it when it’s time to pack away after the ghosts and ghouls have gone back into hiding.

Authentique Paper Goes Back to School

Authentique Paper Goes Back to School: Mini Album with Accolade, Companions and Frontier

Hello Friends!  What a fun day this is!  Today’s the day that Authentique Paper Goes Back to School!  The Authentique Design Team have prepared some amazing Back to School projects to share with you.  You can find them all HERE on the Authentique Blog.  For my project share, I’ve created a chunky monkey of a mini album made with the Accolade, Companions and Frontier Collection Kits.

This “from scratch” album measures a hefty 6 1/4″ x 7″ x 2 1/2″.  I created a 5 tab hidden binding system inside the covers to hold my pocket pages.  (You can find a tutorial for the Valentine’s Day album I made using this same system HERE. )

The spine is reinforced with a canvas binding for strength and durability.

I’ve accented the album with some cute school themed charms and Bold Red Check Ribbon.

Authentique Paper Goes Back to School: A Peek Inside

There is so much to see inside this album, that I created a video tour for you.  But I thought you might like to see a few of the still shots first.  This is the inside cover.  I’ve used the floral paper and kitty cat border from Companions here.  Our son and his wife have 3 kitty loving daughters, so I thought it would be cute to make a pocket with these cute cats on it.  Accolade is such a neutral collection that you can pair it with almost anything and it still looks great.

The inner pages are loaded with flaps, fold outs and pocket pages.  To stretch my designer paper, I used Authentique Spectrum Cardstock.  It’s a perfect color match.

Look how great these papers from Frontier look alongside Accolade and Companions!  I had such fun mixing and matching collections!

This double page looks like a flap page, but it’s actually holding two very fun photo inserts.

These 4″ x 6 1/2″ photo inserts slip neatly behind the page.  To do this, just place adhesive on only 3 sides of your paper.

Authentique Paper Goes Back to School: The YouTube Video Tour

There are too many pages in this album for me to share all the photos here.  So I created this 10 minute video tour.  I’ll show you how all the mechanisms work and share tips and tricks that I used while creating the album.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

I’m sitting in the corner with the dunce cap on my head!  The date for the Authentique group share post was changed to FRIDAY, but I missed the memo!  So pop on by the Authentique blog tomorrow, Friday August 31, to join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping  by!

Cheerio,
