A Little Ale Book

It is Friday and it is 5 o’clock somewhere, so we thought we would share this great Little Ale Book.  Everyone has their favorite beer and our Vino & Ale Collection is the perfect way to show off those night out photos where everyone has their beer of choice, maybe a cigar in hand and some great music in the background.  Johnna’s mini book was created with layers of pages in different shapes and sizes with lots of goodies hanging out in all the right places.


The front cover was created with a triangle cut from book board and covered with Frosty Mugs on Ivory Rev a pocket of burlap and filled with fussy cut pieces from the Brew Labels on Ivory and  On Tap on Ivory.   Tie it together and add a charms from the 7gypsies Charm Set: Time.

IMG_0284The next page in book is a Canvas Corp Flag Shape.  The Canvas and Burlap Shapes come in a variety of shapes including tag, rectangle, triangle, diamond, circle and pocket.  They come in two sizes, so you can use them for tiny books and 5×7 size books.  All of the shapes are two pieces of fabric sewn together with the edges exposed.  They are also great for making banners, bunting and signs.

IMG_0319Add ephemera, fussy cut IPA bottles and another charm from the Time set.  Adding a touch of kraft c-flute gives the pages that extra stability to add metals and layers of paper.

IMG_0320The next page is also a triangle, but this one cut from the Kraft C-Flute paper and the top is covered with a scrap of denim.  The American Vintage Ephemera Pack works great with Vino & Ale – bits and pieces of the pack are added throughout the book. Bottle labels are so cool these days, we all find ourselves taking photos of them and this book is the perfect place to showcase your favorites.

IMG_0321The flip side of this page is covered with one of our favorite basics Black & Ivory Zig Zag and covered with our Small Kraft Bag that is folded to fit right in.  Adding bags to pages is a great way to store photos, notes about your favorite beers, ales, IPA’s and ciders.  The fussy cut art from the On Tap paper looks great in and out of the bag.

IMG_0322What would an evening out drinking a few brews be without some great cigars? This photo was the perfect touch.  It is slipped inside one of our Vintage File Folders.  They make great pockets and they are printed on both sides with great art that looks amazing with this ensemble.
