A fun project
I have attempted uploading this little photo wallet to my gallery on Splitcoaststampers with no success for daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaays! It is kinda pathetic how quickly we expect things to happen anymore,so any delay feels endless. Oh well...I realized I have his new blog, so I will post pictures here! Hope you like it!
Here it is closed...
I made this photo wallet from a template found on splitcoaststampers.com I used Stampin' Up's Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin Kit. This was a project for my Stampin' Mania Club, and they LOVED it! The concept is simple, so any scrappin kit will work. No ink was used at all!! Just paper and punches and self-adhesive dies! I used the corner rounder punch and the slit punch, both seen on the front.
The first inside view shows off some of the die cuts...
Once upon a time, I didn't care for these die cuts. After all, I am a STAMPER!! Why use such easy-peasy shortcuts?? Well, shucks, if you are making a lot of quick gifts, this is a wonderful way of getting through your list! Not to mention, if you have a group of kids who enjoy crafts, this is a NEAT and CLEAN project! Perfect for your Brownie troop or homeschool art class!
On the next inside view, you can see that I used the photo corner punch. I also used dimensionals ...found on almost everything I make! The borders are all cut from 12 inch strips. Even though these kits are designed for scrapbooks, they can be adapted to any project! By the way, the top "flap" opens too...but my photographer (aka hubby Bruce) wanted to keep it closed for the photo shoot. I can't complain...his rates are cheap! LOL!!
Looks like I managed to get 3 pics in one blog post! WooHoo!! Let me kn0w what you think!!
By the way...the "Stampin' Mania" name refers more to me than my mild mannered friends.
