At our recent class I used an idea from Convention … and it was a real hit with the class members! I think because it was a “stress-free” project – no thinking … just creating! My Friday night group seem “allergic” to thinking by Friday!!! 😉 😀
So … these are the fabulous little folding scrapbooks that we created … they are all created from a base of 12″ x 12″ cardstock. Score in half both ways … and cut from the centre top point down to where the two score lines cross. Fold top left square down and then fold bottom centre score backwards to form the card.
The first sample is the Convention sample … and even though it was probably the simplest in design … I just love how easy it was to put together! And … I think it looks really impressive! I did add a few little embellishments to this design.
The inside shows some simple stamping with Circle Circus & coordinating embellishments & papers. Sometimes even tiny simple embellishments can add something reallly special to your project. If you try and keep everything themed you will end up with a really nice creation.

My second sample was created around the Friends 24/7 & Friendly Words Wheel stamps. Just LOVE this set & wheel together!
This one is a little more “fussy” … but I love these colours & stamps together! I used the “Raspberry Tart” paper as a starting point!

My third sample was a little more “funky” … and was an easy one to “copy”. Some of my class girls only survive a Friday night if they have something to copy!!! 😉 😀
