The Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 3

  Graphic 45 Scrapbook Adhesive Blog Hop 2016 Logos

Day 3 and the fun is just beginning! We are loving hopping along with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! So many great ideas this week. And today we have even more inspiration!

Off to the Races Tuxedo Box and Pop-Up Album, Tutorial by Alexandra Morein, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1

First, Alexandra Morein has the most amazing set of projects with great video tutorials as well. How fun!

"Pop-up becomes  now more and more popular in scrapbooking. Crafters seek for something new and unique to add to their creations.

Today I want to share with you a pop-up mini album, which has 3 pop-up elements’ designs and 6 pocket pages. It can hold 14 pictures of 5” x 3.5” and 6 more pictures of 3” x 4”.

It comes with a tuxedo shaped box, which was created from scratch out of chipboard. I have been thinking about the shape of the box quite a lot, and looking at the picture on the signature sheet of the “Off to the Races“ collection gave me the final idea. The most inspiring for me personally, funny as it may sound, were the gentlemen’s bows. 

I created a fabric bow by myself, to put on top of the box as a finishing touch. I think it adds more character to the whole project and looks much better than if it was made of paper.

The three pop-up designs that I was talking about are called as follows:

  • Twisted pop-up panel
  • Automatic pull tab
  • Z-fold pop-up panel

In the world of card making these 3 designs are very popular now, and since I mostly made cards before I developed my love and passion for mini albums, I decided to adopt the designs for the pages of the mini album.


In the accompanying tutorial, I will show you how to create the tuxedo box. I hope you will enjoy the tutorial and use the wonderful G45 papers for crafting along." ~Alexandra

Quick and Easy Thank You Card Set Tutorial, Cafe Parisian, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 2

Who doesn't love gorgeous cards? Kathy Clement has them for us in spades today. So many great techniques!

"Anyone who plays with paper has had to address the issue of dealing with scraps. Every scrap of G45 paper is so gorgeous that I can’t bear to toss it in the recycle bin.  So,  I used to have boxes and drawers bulging with leftover papers. 

Then one day I realized that project scraps are really just cards in the making!  Instead of cramming my scraps into a box or a drawer where they would languish (and multiply!) I started using them to create small note cards, thank you cards, and tags.

This set of 4 thank you notes is made from leftover pieces of a larger project.  I added in some ATC thank you tags, chipboard flowers and ribbon and in under an hour, I had 4 cute as a button Cafe Parisian Thank You notes. 


I’ve created a YouTube Video so you can start making your own quick and easy note cards utilising leftover bits of paper." ~Kathy

Kathy's Video Tutorial

 

 


Quick and Easy Thank You Card Set Tutorial, Cafe Parisian, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 2

Tip: Use Scrapbook Adhesives Thin 3-D Foam Squares on the backs of ATC Thank You tags to add a dimensional layer to your cards.


Quick and Easy Thank You Card Set Tutorial, Cafe Parisian, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 2

Tip: Lightly mist the back of chipboard flowers with a little water before shaping with ball stylus and foam mat.  This helps break down the fibers in the paper, making them easier to shape.  It also releases the starch in the paper, so that the flowers, when dry, will hold their shape better.

Tip: Custom color your own designer ribbon with Distress ink.  Choose ink colors that go well with your project, then smoosh the ink pads onto a non stick craft sheet. Spritz lightly with water until little beads form.  Then soak the ink up with your ribbon, scrunching it in your hands to evenly distribute the ink.  Dry gently with a heat tool.

I am overwhelmed by all this talent! I am super excited to see and be inspired by all this amazing art! I am now ready to start in on all my holiday projects!

Wow! Amazing projects especially that tuxedo box!

What fabulous projects! Great use of the scraps for cards because each piece is so full of luscious colour. The Tuxedo box album is truly a work of art! All it's working fold outs and pockets make it such a treasure hunt. What perfect papers to scrap a child's memorable horse ride! Fabulous work by all!

Just gorgeous, you all spoil us. These are just great.
Many thanks,
Sue Mac

I've never seen a tuxedo box - clever idea!

I am SO inspired by all these creative projects. Your paper is lovely and these creations are just breathtaking!

Great projects
Nice to see photo shares with 3L products. I need to get on that DT with 3L....smile

WOW todays inspiration is AMAZING!!!!

Wow - just wow!

I'm actually speechless - just when I thought I'd seen it all, you throw this at us! Utterly amazed...

the tuxedo box stole the show.
Fantastic idea. You never
know what to give a groom -
this would be so appreciated.
thanks for sharing.

Wonderful projects!

Wow, the tuxedo box itself is just amazing! And the accompanying op-up album fabulous. Beautiful work.
Kathy's notecards are so pretty & very special.
And Marina's mini album is darling; the cover being especially beautiful.

OMG!! I am so excited about these creations!! The Tuxedo box would also be a great gift to a couple going to prom! Love them all and can't wait to see even more!! TFS!

Just awesome projects once again. The design team really did well show casing every little detsil.

I just learned how to make the twist pop-up yesterday. I love the idea of taking it beyond cards and using it in albums!

Very cool. Thanks

Today's projects are amazing! I just got both Cafe Parisian and Off to the Races and seeing all this creative inspiration is making my head spin!!! Thanks for sharing with us!!!

Such clever projects! The Graphic 45 papers make them so pretty! Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous as always, I want one of each.

The three projects today are amazing! Love them all!!

This was definitely a wow day of projects! Alexandra blew my mind with her tuxedo box! When Kathy said she just used scraps leftover from other projects for her cards well if I had not watched her video I don't think I would have believed it! Last but not least I love the mini album created by Marina so many great elements an wonderful papers! Thanks G45.

All of the cards are just gorgeous. I love all of the pop up elements. I can't wait to try my hand at this. I love Kathy's easy thank you cards with the Cafe Parisian. I'm going to have to have that and Off To the Races. Horses were my passion when I was a kid so I know I could make some fun projects with it. Now my passion is eating French pastries. Lol!

Fabulous. I really like the tuxedo box.

Beautiful projects, sometimes I am not sure about the paper then I see something done with it and I love it.

Such great projects! Thanks for the inspiration!

OMG, I just love the new projects, especially this incredible pop up art of Alexandra. Great!

Wow, such talent

The pop-up box is over the top, the cards are gorgeous, and the mini-album is a delight! Plus tutorials! What more could a girl want?

Awesome...love the tuxedo box!

Awesome box
and amazing
albums and
cards!
Carla from Utah

Beautiful projects. Thanks for sharing.

I am really enjoying today's projects! Kathy's video was so interesting. G45 papers are perfect for layering. Loved watching her skilled hands and listening to her instructions and tips for success. Wonderful prize package!
