Papers In Feburary Kit

Papers In February Kit

The papers for the February 11, 2011 Crop and Scrap Kit will be one each from the Presto Patterns, First Edition, and Springtime Vintage Designers Series Papers.

The papers will be cut in 4″ widths.  For the back of the pocket area the lengths will be 6″.  The pocket fronts are 4″ x 4-1/2″.

Each of the papers in the kit will be different from the next kit because there are only two of each sheet of paper, except for the First Edition papers which has four of each print.  These three sheets of paper are more than enough to create this one mini album.  Even if you want to cover the front and back of the time cards which are 3-1/2 x 8-3/4″.  Add your own papers into the mix if you choose to.

Time Cards Left Bare

Time Cards Left Bare

If you choose to leave the Time Cards bare there will be a lot of paper left over and you might think about adding a strip or two to hide the total look of the Time Card.  The coin envelopes will also cover quite a bit of the Time Cards too, saving paper to use on the tags.

Since I don’t have a clue what type of pictures you wish to put in the mini I am leaving the embellishing up to you.  If you are looking for a project to do for your newborn baby or grand baby then the pieces I’ve used won’t work for that.

Time Cards Covered With Papers

Time Cards Covered With Papers

If you choose to cover the Time Card with paper you can work around the photos you wish to use from the scraps left over in covering the pocket areas.

Once you have the directions for folding the legal sized file folders into the shape necessary for this mini you can think about using the papers and things you already have on hand.

With Sale-A-Bration going on now and through March 31, 2011 you can take advantage of the FREE stuff when you order the Butterfly Prints, Notably Ornate, or Vintage Vogue stamp sets along with any other items you wish to get in your $50 order.  You can even purchase your very own pack of Presto Patterns Paper and experiment with it.

Watch this video to see what each type of mini album looks like, either fairly plain or totally embellished.
