Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial for Frilly and Funkie Saturday Showcase

Hello, Friends!  As promised, I’m back today with this Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial.  It’s being featured on the Frilly & Funkie Challenge Blog Saturday Showcase Feature today, but I thought I would share it here with you as well.

I’ve already shared a sneak peek of the project with you, and you can review that HERE if you wish.   But why don’t you grab a cuppa and a snack, and we’ll dive into this photo and information heavy post.

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial: ATC Box Details and Tips

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

Pop a fussy cut teapot up on foam dots, then add a Graphic 45 Die Cut Clock behind it to create a feeling of depth and dimension.  The clock die is a perfect fit for the box.

The base is a Graphic 45 ATC Book Box, which is too cute for words! To create the tag closure, simply follow these easy steps:

  • First, score two of the ATC tags that come in the box 1 1/2″ from the domed edge.  Fold and burnish well.
  • Next, use the Graphic 45 ATC tag die to cut 4 liners for the tags (front and back for each tag).  Adhere these to the tags, then score, fold and burnish a second time.
  • Now center and adhere the tags to the box lid and bottom.  See?  I told you it was easy!

I’ve added a spoon from my collection to decorate the spine.  Glossy Accents works really well for this.  To make the bun feet, follow these simple steps:

  • First, adhere two 1″ wooden bingo chips together.
  • Next, wrap the outside edge with 1/2″ Scor-Tape.
  • Then, cut a  5/8″ strip of designer paper from scraps and wrap it around the Scor-Tape.  Done!

Because you have to fit the ATC Mini Album inside the box, you will have to keep the elements fairly flat so that the lid will close. So I fussy cut and layered a few simple elements from the collection onto the front, then tied the bow.  Easy peasy.

The 2 3/4″ x 3 5/8″ mini album is slightly larger than regulation ATC size, but close enough for me.  You will learn how to custom build it to fit inside the G45 ATC box.

Wrap burlap around the spine. This not only looks great, but it helps to strengthen the integrity of the spine.  Then attach ribbon with 1/2″ Scor-Tape to serve as a closure mechanism.

The trick to creating a small album with 12×12 papers is making things fit.  To solve this, I scored border pieces like this 12″ strip then accordion folded to  make it fit.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 10

On the reverse side, I added sentiment tea bag tags that I’ve been saving.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 11

The album is made up of (3) 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″ page units.  Each page unit is actually 4 separate pages with flap features or turn pages and a pocket.  I tucked a tea bag into the pocket of each page unit.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 12

The left hand page is a 2 1/4″ wide strip of designer paper from the collection.  It is nearly three times the height of the page.  In order to use it, I scored it into 3 sections, cut tab corners, added magnets and folded to create a little folio to hold ATC cards.   The page on the right has a fun turn tab feature.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 13

Belly Bands are a quick and easy way to add interest to an album.  Just score 1/2″ flaps on each side of a scrap piece of paper, then tuck tags from the paper collection behind it.    The right hand page is actually a bookmark that I turned into a fold down page.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 14

How fun is that?

This flap page lifts to reveal a pocket and teacup.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 16

This fussy cut teapot is scored in half.  Then I glued the right hand half to the page, folded it, and added adhesive to the left hand side.  Close the page, and voila!  It’s perfectly set!

Remember when we all got dressed in our Easter best for Easter Sunday? For me, the outfit was a complete ensemble with little gloves, a matching hat (with an annoying elastic string to keep it firmly on one’s head) white patent leather shoes and an itchy crinoline petticoat.  There is something about this project that takes me right back to those precious memories.

Stamperia Alice ATC Boxed Mini Album

Stamperia Alice ATC Boxed Mini Album for Frilly and Funkie March Madness Challenge

Hello Friends!  Today I have a stinkin’ cute Stamperia Alice ATC Boxed Mini Album to share with you.  I created this adorable project for the latest challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. Our clever Suzz is acting as hostess this go round.  We’ll take a look at the project in a second, but first, let’s see what Suzz has to say about this fabulous challenge.

Challenge Theme:  March Madness
Don’t be afraid, the challenge isn’t going to require you to use basketball inspired images.  Instead I want you to be inspired by Alice in Wonderland.  I started from this quote of a conversation between the Mad Hatter and Alice:  The Mad Hatter asks Alice: “Have I gone Mad?”  and Alice replies “I am afraid so.  You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret.   All the best people are.”  The challenge is to take any idea or concept from this wonderful tale to inspire your project.  There are so many wonderful bits or pieces to be inspired by like the Queen of Hearts, the mad hatter, the looking glass, tea party or Alice herself.    The possibilities are endless.  Anything can be your inspiration but make sure you reference what inspired your art from the story! 

Stamperia Alice ATC Boxed Mini Album : The Inspiration

I grew up reading an Illustrated Classics Hardcover Deluxe Edition of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.  My older brother David gave it to me one Christmas when I was about 8 years old.  I’ve lost count of how many times I read it and pored over the gorgeous full color illustrations and engravings.  My mother had memorized the entire “Jabberwocky” poem and used to recite it to me (along with The Walrus and the Carpenter) as we dried supper dishes together.  So to say that I love this  challenge theme is an understatement.

Stamperia’s “Alice” captures all the whimsy and beauty of my own beloved volume, so I chose to work with their 12×12 collection.  My original idea was to create a Mad Hatter’s Tea Box. Then my imagination began to run wild. I ended up making this ATC sized Mini Album housed in this Graphic 45 ATC Book Box.

This might be the cutest project I have ever made.  The Graphic 45 ATC Box measures just 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.   I created a 2 7/8″ x 3 3/4″ ATC Mini Album to fit inside the box.

Because I’m sharing  a tutorial for making the Mini Album Base and page units on Saturday over on the Frilly and Funkie Saturday Showcase, I’m not going to share any details at this time.  I will tell you that this little album is loaded with interactive features and fun surprises, so I hope you’ll join me on Saturday for the big reveal.

Now It’s YOUR Turn!

You are cordially invited to join in on this fun challenge.  To do so, simply create your own vintage or shabby chic Alice-inspired project.   Then link  up on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog before 11:55PM EST on Tuesday, April 9th.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot  at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. In addition, the Design Team will select three further outstanding entries and those creators will receive a Top Pick badge to display on their blogs!

I’m looking forward to sharing all the details and the tutorial with you on Saturday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy

Graphic 45 Sneak Peeks: By the Sea Mini Album

Graphic 45 Sneak Peeks: By the Sea Mini Album

Hello, Friends! It’s Graphic 45 Sneak Peeks week!  What fun!  The beach is my happy place, so I was thrilled when I was asked to create a mini album with By the Sea.  This collection has always been a favorite for me, and I’m thrilled to see it coming back as a Deluxe Collector’s Edition.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

I decided to try something new with this Graphic 45 Staples Kraft Mixed Media Album.  To shake up my album cover design, I placed the 4″ x 6″ lighthouse image inside a shaker pouch.  I just love the way the sequins and beads mimic the look of sunshine sparkling on water.  This is probably the easiest way I’ve found to create a shaker element.

  • Select your image.   I chose to  mat mine on some blue gingham check to help it fill the frame.
  • Cut a piece of clear acrylic cardstock the same size as your matted image.
  • Use a sewing machine to stitch almost all the way around the perimeter of the image.  Leave about a 2″ opening in one corner.
  • Fill the opening with a sequin mix.  (use a funnel tray for mess-free filling) These buttons, beads and sequins are a mix called Shades of Chambray from Lilac Lane.
  • Place the shaker pouch back on the sewing machine, line up the needle and finish stitching.
  • Back the shaker pouch with a couple of layers of chipboard for stability and to elevate in the design.
Graphic 45 Sneak Peeks: By the Sea Mini Album Details

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 02

These Graphic 45 Staples Blue Roses are a perfect color match for this collection.  After layering them down the side of the album, I tucked in some altered metal beach charms.

TIP:  Paint metal charms with ivory chalk paint, then tap with Graphic 45 Bon Voyage Blue Decades Ink Pad.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 03

Fussy cut shells and real shells come together perfectly with real beach sand.  I’ve also painted a Graphic 45 Staples Shabby Chic Door Plate and Knob to match the album.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 04

Dress up the spine with Glory Blue Seam Binding Ribbon, a cluster of beach charms and a Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Clock Key.  The lighthouse image was too big to fit the spine, so I carefully cut it in half, pieced it together so that the frame matched up, then adhered it to the base of the spine.

 By the Sea Mini Album: The Inside Scoop

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 05

TIP: Make a quick and easy pocket for the inside cover.  I simply cut my designer paper 3″ longer than the height of the page.  Then score, fold and adhere the sides to make an instant pocket.  Add border strips to the pocket flap for extra fun.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 06

TIP:  The vellum pages in the album are so beautiful…but delicate!  To prevent them from tearing, stitch the vellum to a piece of heavy kraft cardstock.  Fill the space between the pages with more of the sequin mix for a fun surprise.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 07

TIP: Make quick pockets by adhering just the top, bottom and one side of patterned paper to the album page.  Now you can tuck in photo mounts.  Decorate with fussy cut images from the signature page.

By the Sea Mini Album: Tuck Spots, Inserts and Flaps

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 08

I removed several pages from the album before I began this project.  Then I cut and scored them to create pocket inserts throughout the album.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 09

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 10

Border strips make great tuck spots!  And you can easily create a space for pull out elements.  Just adhere sides and bottom of your patterned paper, leaving the top edge open.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 11

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 12

TIP: Create a watery background on the vellum pages.  Apply Bon Voyage Blue Decades Ink directly to the vellum.  Spritz lightly with water to activate the ink and make it move.  Heat dry.  Then stitch the pages together as before.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 13

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 14

TIP: Create tuck spots by adhering just the outer edge of a journal card to the album page.  Photos can tuck behind, and you have a lovely spot for journaling.

Graphic 45 By the Sea Mini Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 15

TIP:  To create a quick and easy side pocket, cut patterned paper 2″ wider than the page.  Score, fold and adhere.

I’m so excited that this album will be on display in the G45 Booth at Creativation this week.  I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks that you can adapt for your own mini album making adventures.
