Project Inspiration Example

I received this card, using the stamp set, Love Matters, in a swap. I found it to be very inspiring for a Clear Envelope Album cover design too! Here are two of the Clear Envelope Albums - each with different embellishments. Can you picture a scrapbook page with this same layout? The color blocks would be bigger, depending on the size of your scrapbook page (6 x 6; 8 1/2 x 11; 12 x 12), and could be used as photo mats. I would leave thick mat borders so the stamped images showed around the edges of your pictures. Then the "friends" would be center of the page on Stampin' Dimensionals, so the pics could be easily tucked under it. Keep the "binding" edge from the Album on one side, and use it for journaling space, using coordinating bows to break up the journaling for each picture. you could even number each pic and journaling spot using a number stamp and Staz On ink pad. ENJOY!

Alex's 6 x 6 Album

I created this for my Great-Nephew, Alexander Michael Cavalenes, for a Baptism gift. I found inspiration in many places - including the Scrapbook in an Evening template and Inspiration Sheets. I hope you'll find inspiration here too! Colors are Whisper White, Sage Shadow, Bashful Blue, and Brocade Blue. I used many sets - so if you want more information about a certain page - just contact me!
