I Heart Summer accordion album

Hey, everybody! Happy Monday – hope you had a great weekend and your week ahead will be fabulous! We have something awesome to look forward to – our new internet service provider will be installing a little later this morning and we’ll finally have faster internet! Woo-hoo! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a very colorful Summer accordion album featuring our Blank Wood Card as the cover. This was a lot of fun!

I painted the cover with green chalk paint and lightly sanded vertically and horizontally on it to create a very subtle cross-hatch design. I used some awesome patterned papers, ribbon, and tons of embellishments, die cuts, and elements throughout. Most of the pages contain flat photo/journaling areas but I did create one pocket with a pull-out card on the last page.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
