Grandma Heidi loves to take Ainsley fishing so I made this cute little book for her. I used some of my H & M stamps inside as well, but I am not sure any show in these pictures. They are cute fishing poles, boots and gone fishing signs.
I was browsing my DP the other night and found this simply scrappin' kit(Out and About) from Stampin Up!' Don't know where it came from, but it sure is cute. I really don't scrap,
but this project was fun and quick to put together. I found this tutorial on this cute mini flip album and since I have a "thing" for mini albums, I wanted to make a quick one to send to Heidi in honor of her NEW BLOG! Yes, My stamping sister, Heidi, has finally jumped in with both feet!!! She has such amazing talent...you must go see her wonderful creations HERE!
Please leave her a comment to let her know you stopped in to visit!
This book works best just standing up and open for display. The finished size is 6 x 3. I made it like the tutorial, but would probably change some of my inside design and placement of the little pull outs where you can add pictures.
For this book I closed the pull outs with fun little clips, but I would suggest not putting 2 pull outs on the same side of the page(just to even out the book a little) should you decide to make one yourself. I left plenty of room for granny to journal also.
Please let me see what your flip album looks like should you decide to make one!
The Hero Arts Blog posted a video tutorial here.
This is a close up of the pull out. The pics will be mounted on the front and back of each pull out fold(I think there are 4). Each pull out has a little tab to grab to open it up and is held shut with those goldy little clips you see in the pictures.
