It is time to spread a little love and our Amore Paper Collection is filled with hearts, love and special sentiments that are perfect for making the cutest Valentines, cards, tags and little goodies. With 16 sheets, 2 of each of the 6 designs, you will have plenty to make cards, gift boxes and banners.
Monica Taylor uses the Amore collection papers to make a Valentines Flip Book which she personalised using some of the Architextures elements.
I love making themed flip books. They are a great way to capture memories and tell a story. Whenever I create these flip books, I not only create several pages to capture photos, but I make sure to also create pages for journaling. This is a place to capture a memory, dates, places that we sometimes cannot capture in a photo.
Monica used the following:
Canvas Corp Red & White mini heart paper
Canvas Corp Amore Paper collection
7gypsies Architextures Stash Paque – Enjoy
7gypsies Architextures vintage keys collection
7gypsies Architextures International coins
7gypsies Architextures Glass bottles
7gypsies Architextures Salvage Art – Drawer
7gypsies American Vintage 8×8 paper pad
7gypsies Antique Gold keys
Ideaology label letters, photobooth, found relatives, clippings, ring fastener
Prima epoxy stickers
white sheer ribbon, washi tape
Paper cutter, Scissors
tape runner, Score board, pick, tombow glue
tweezers, sidekick die cut machine
To create the base, you need to cut 4 6″ x 12″ heavy cardstock and 2 6″x 6″. Score 3 of the pieces at the 3″ and 9″ and one at the 2.5″, 3″, 9″ and 9.5″
Adhere one of the 3 pieces that was scored at 3″ and 9″ to the middle section of the piece scored 4 times. Adhere your 2nd piece to the right middle flap and your 3rd piece to your left middle flap.
Adhere your 6″ x 6″ piece to your outer right flap and your 2nd 6″ x 6″ piece to your left outer flap.
Once the base is secure, you are ready to start decorating. Your 6″ x 6″ panel will be decorated with 5.75″ x 5.75″ square panels. Your flaps will be decorated with 2.75″ x 5.75″ panels. Using a precision paper trimmer ensures each piece has exact measurements.
Once you have your panels complete with your decorative card stock it is time to embellish. The 1/2 inch panels allow for lots of embellishments.
The CCB junque packs have lots of ephemera and elements to decorate your flip book.
Architextures findings are also great embellishments.
I find it is the little touches that make each book unique. I’m sure you’ll make yours personal and one of a kind!
Happy Valentine’s Day preparations!!!
