Happy Friday everyone! I have a fun project to share with you today. The Club Scrap Artist team each put their own spin on the Stacked Booked Project, so please check out the Club Scrap blog to see all of their creations!
I used the "naked" version of this project and papers from London Calling to create travel ephemera boxes to hold all of the ticket stubs, maps, and brochures I've picked up over the years. As a scrapbooker, I have some packrat tendencies and it's hard to me to throw away these types of keepsakes, because I might need to scrap it someday! I created a displayable project to hold on to these pieces until they are ready to go into my scrapbook.
I changed some specifications from the original instructions to make this project fit my needs. Instead of wrapping the inside box with text weight paper, I simply covered each side with cardstock by spreading bookbinding glue on the pieces of bookboard and adhering these to paper. I then used a craft knife to cut the paper along the edge of the bookboard to create the perfectly covered sides of the box.
I also cut out two pieces of extra bookboard to create additional compartments to store smaller items and the Instagram albums I made for each box.
I made three sizes of albums: 2.5 in, 3 in, and 3.5 in to hold my square photos. They fit perfectly in the square compartment I created especially for them.
You can see my Poland mini album here, and below I share some of the details of the insides of my Spain and London albums.
Similar to my Poland album, I used the cutaparts from the London Calling collection to add words to my albums and I again used vellum from my stash to add some softness to the pages. I love the simplicity of this album because it really allows the photos to shine!
For my London album, I switched up the closure system I used on the front of the album because I really wanted to use this Union Jack ribbon. I also sprinkled some strips of the Underground washi and the cute stamp stickers from the Lite kit in this album for some added flair.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out this project! Be sure to check out the other amazing versions my fellow team members have created as well!
