Crop am Rhein Mini Album, Part 1

6:00 AM

As promised on Monday, I'm going to show you my Crop am Rhein workshop projects here on the blog. First up is a mini album to document a trip to Bolivia way back, made with supplies from Studio Calico Office Hours scrapbook kit.

The only thing I added to the kit was a strip of washi here and there, some hemp twine, a few strips of vellum, a glassine bag, as well as a piece of chipboard for the back cover and a binding ring.

Want to take a look at the pages? Here you go with the part one of the travel album documenting our time in and around La Paz!

You can see here, most of the pages consist of folded patterned paper with the "closed" side down. This is great for sewing on pages (which I did after the workshop) and have the ugly side of the thread not showing on the back. Also, when you want to add hidden journaling or have extra photos, you can use this to your advantage: Just glue the left side shut with a narrow strip of scor-tape and you have lots of pockets you can fill throughout your album.

I tell you, the paper strips you usually cut away from the 12x12" paper sheets are sooo good in this kit! Don't throw them away - they look awesome when you need just a little something to accent photos or add a title.

The watercolor die-cuts contained in the kit are fun, too. They are thicker than your usual watercolor paper, almost chipboard-like, and the best: even with lots of water, they don't bend!

That's it for today! I'll be back next on the 12th for a blog hop with Happy Scrappy Friends. Part two of the mini is coming soon though and I also documented how I covered the chipboard if you are interest to see and try for yourself. Until then, have a good weekend, all :)
