Just wanted to show you what I have been playing with:
Here are the first few stages:
I have also done theses:
This was the very first one I did and used momento ink which did not dry so you can see it did smear in places. Tried it again:
Skin was a lot better the second time around.
Like this one a lot, although I could have done better with the butterflies. Have a great weekend! ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Tomorrow we will be finishing up the BoBunny “Book in a Box, Box in a Book” mini.
This is the mini we will create using Prima’s new Butterfly collection. Ashliegh from scrapsbuttonsnbows will be creating a beautiful box to hold this mini. Can’t wait to do it. This will be the last project I will be doing for Scrapadabadoo, as I have decided to step down from the design team. It has been a great experience and want to thank Barrie and Carol for the opportunity to work with them and the other wonderful guys on the team.
So, if you would like to follow along tomorrow night here are the cutting measurements from chipboard.
You will need 6 pieces of chipboard 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 for the pages.
The cover is 6 5/8 x 6 5/8 and you will need 2 pieces, then for the spine one piece cut at 2 1/8 x 6 5/8.
You will need connector strips/hinges to adhere the pages together. 5 pieces at 6 1/2 x 1 1/4 four pieces at 6 5/8 x 1 1/4.
If you will need to decide what color to make your hinges. If you want to use what I did in the sample you will need to cut your strips from kraft cardstock. Also, if you have the Prima bloom spray in the Berry Wine, that would be a great choice as well. In this book for class I will be using white strips as I plan on painting the edges with white paint.
So, 8:00 pm EST tomorrow and I will have some show and tell before we get started. ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

We will be doing Alberto Juarez “book in a box, box in a book” I did at Art Venture. I have made my book a little bigger.
You will need:
2 pieces of chipboard 6 x 7
1 piece 2 x 7
I know the middle is WRONG should be 2 x 7
Then using 7 x 8 pattern paper wrapped the 6 x 7 pieces with your pattern paper making sure to miter your corners leaving about 1/8 gab at the corners. I will be using the Bo Bunny Madeline collection in class.
The middle 2 x 7 piece you will need to wrap it with a piece of cardstock 3 x 8. Score 1/2 inch at top and bottom and apply tape and fold up. You will apply tape to the 1/2 inch on the 7 inch side and yes you will glue it to the inside with they chipboard on the outside spine.
Next, we will make the outside bump to mimic a hard book spine.
Next we will be working on the box to go inside:
For the box that goes inside the album you will need:
2 pieces 6 3/4 x 5 scor at 1 inch and 3 inch
2 pieces 6 1/2 x 5 scor 1 inch and 3 inch and 1/2 inch top and bottom
Note: you will be scoring with the 5 inch side at the top of your scor board. I will show you in class how to assemble the box.
Then for the album inside you will new you will cut 6 pieces of chipboard at 6 1/4 x 5. We will be doing the mini next week.
I will also, be adding a lot of flowers to the front cover as well, as using the Prima die doilies. If you don’t have it you can use any paper doily you may have and any other embellishments you wish to add to the covers of this project.
So, grab your favorite collection you have been hording and come and play! Hope to see you there.
