In the previous post I shared how to create a basic chipboard mini album.  Now I will list 10 things to help you complete the inside pages.  You can watch the video here to see how I came up with these.  

Ten basic pages:

1.  MATS:  you have your photo 6 x 4 so your mat could be 6 1/4 x 4 1/4
You could cut that in half and have two mats on your page:  3 x 4 1/4
You could have them side by side or touching/overlapping

2.  POCKETS:  left/right vertical pocket, bottom or corner
You can punch a border on these or add ribbon

3.  WATERFALL:  this also, can be vertical or horizontal

4.  FLIPS;  up/down/sideways and file folders would be great, too

5.  ACCORDIAN:  you can score however long you would like to have it
 and it can flip in 4 different directions.

6.  ENVELOPES;  can be used for pockets, as well as accordian pull outs

7.  TAGS:  great for interactive pages

8.  TIP IN AND OUT:  this is where you add to the page.  Check video for sample.

9.  BELLY BAN:  can be used in center or right/left of page.

10.  EMBELLISHMENTS:  make the pages your own.

Again, please check out the video to see how I show how these can be applied to your own pages.  Now go and crank these out...lol

Tonight on Ustream I will be sharing how to create a mini album from chipboard.  
Here is the basic mini we will be creating:

This is what you will need:

2 pcs 6 x 7 1/4           1 pc 2" x  6            6 pcs 5 3/4 x 7

2 pcs 1 5/8 x 6  You will score each side at 3/4 which will leave you with 1/8 middle
2 pcs 1 5/8 x 5 3/4 these will attach to the front and back cover score at 1/2 each side give you 1/8 middle
6 pcs 1 1/4 x 5 3/4 these will attach the chipboard pages again score at 1/2 each side give you 1/4 middle
Place score tape on only one side

I will show you how to put this together so, if you like to make your own or purchase the Prima one.  We will then go over the different ways to create the interactive pages to make it your own.  Hope to see you there.  7:30 Est.  Just click on the upper right hand corner of my blog and it will take you there.    ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

This month the hash tag is  #LoveWinterArt which I created a canvas using Andrea Gomoll Christmas Digi Pack. I love her whimsical creations.  So, I created this canvas which you can see the process on my Smash Up Sunday Stream the 6th.
Please be sure to check out the other great videos in the Creative Art Collaboration using the #LoveWinterArt on Youtube.    ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Journal Page ~ Andrea Gomoll Whimsical Holiday digis

I created these two pages using Andrea Gomoll Whimsical Holiday Digi Pack.  I used acrylic paint for the background and my mini triangle gelli plate to create the Christmas tree.   I added textured paste, neo II’s to color the reindeer, stickles  and silver, gold and white sharpie water base pen to create the splatters.  Added glitter snowflakes and the jingle bells.    Here are some closer looks:
Here you can see I added some snowflake LED lights, so fun!  I created this on my Ustream if you would like to see the process.    ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥
