I was so excited to get this month's kit since my husband is a music teacher. I love all the blue paper in the kit. He teaches High School choir, beginning band and general music. He also teaches piano privately. So I made a new scrapbook for him. It has been a number of years since I made the last one so I am past due. It is set up to add things as he gets them. The dates will be added after it is full.
The first picture is of the kit parts that I received. I get the Deluxe kit, Embellishment side and this time I picked up the Borders & Background stamps.
I cut my pages 8.5 x 8 inches to allow space for the binding. After cutting I inked up the edges using Club Scrap's Sapphire hybrid ink pad. I used my Bind-It-All for this project.
I decorated all the pages before binding it to make it easier. Below are a few of the decorated pages. I made sure there was space for large photos as well as school pictures. I also made sure there were blank pages so that programs and tickets could be added. The High School choir always has a spring trip to Seattle to go to a musical (this year it was Phantom of the Opera), a concert or to the EMP (Experience Music Project).
All ready for binding. I was pretty pleased that I didn't get it too thick. I had 2 matching pieces of cardboard in my stash that I trimmed to 8 3/4 x 8 1/4 and covered with card stock for the front and back covers.
And it is done! First picture shows the front. The 2nd picture shows the binding with ribbons and tag. The tag will be dated when the book is full.
Thank you so much for looking and hopping! Your next stop on the way is Cathy.
