Special Call
By Style

In each issue of Scrapbook News & Review, we'll feature scrapbook pages by style and skill level. As a chance to see as many styles and genres as possible, for this call only, we will not restrict the amount of submissions per scrapbooker. In fact, we would prefer to see at least 3 to 5 layouts per scrapbooker in order to give us an idea of how well defined your style is.

We're currently looking for pages and projects of any size or subject. It must be a clearly defined style, i.e. clean and simple, modern and graphic, shabby chic, classic, freestyle, eclectic, etc. Please include the style category you feel best describes your work.

Mini Album Call

The above flap album is an example that is just bare bones. Now we'd like to see what you can do with it!

Here is a list of what you'll need:

3 pieces of cardstock cut to 6x12
1 piece of patterned paper or cardstock cut to 6 x 11
5 pieces of patterned paper approx 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
8 pieces of patterned paper cut approx 5 1/2 x 2 1/2
2 pieces of patterned paper or cardstock cut to 6 x 1/2"
2 pieces of ribbon approx. 18"
4 eyelets

Score the cardstock at 3" and 9". Fold and use a bone folder to flatten the folds.

Glue the 3" flaps together so all 3 pieces of cardstock are attached to each other.

Adhere patterned paper to the book.

Punch holes in the 6 x 1/2" piece of cardstock/paper about 1/2" in apart in the middle of the paper. Thread your ribbon through the holes. Adhere these papers to the ends of the 6x11 paper. This is the part that wraps around the closed book.

Close up the book and lay it face down. Line up the center of that 6x11 piece of paper with the center of the back of the book and adhere. Then wrap the corners around the front of the book and use your bone folder to flatten the folds. Don't adhere the flaps.
