Take It Out of the Album: Expandable Files and Altered Word

Every month, Club Stamp includes a brand new project that often has nothing to do with scrapbooking, but uses our scrapping and stamping supplies! Today I'm sharing one of those projects, the same project with alternate papers, a project of my own, and a 6x6 beaded book based on one from the 2007 Club Scrap Main Retreat. These make wonderful gifts and also great workshop projects!

Avant Garde 5x7 Expandable File

Avant Garde 5x7 Expandable File

These 5"x7" Expandable Files were the project for the March 2008 Avant Garde Club Stamp Kit and feature papers from that kit. You can take it a step farther and add "feet" to the bottom, stamp on it, embellish it, add tabs, etc, the sky is the limit! The kits are now only available in ATC size in alternate colors, but I can create new kits in your choice of sizes and colors for your banquet or purchase!

Simply Beautiful 5x7 Expandable File

Here is the same project, but it uses papers from the Simply Beautiful May 2007 Kit with tabs cut out using the Kit for a Cause Stencil.

Altered Bistro Sign

This fun little altered sign is another great project for your banquets! I have more signs, mostly of "Bistro" and "Cafe" but also a few others! We would use a mix of textured cardstock, stamping, painting, and inking and can seal them if you wish!

Chinese New Year Beaded 6x6 Book

This little handmade book can be made in any color scheme and theme, with prints or solids! It uses the same stitch-bound binding technique as other projects that I've offered, but adds some beads to the outer spine and doesn't use a hard cover. Plus there are beads or brads added to the otherwise simple pages! Have your guests bring photos for 10 pages and the two covers to have a great workshop!

All of the photos in the book are from the Chinese New Year performances at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. The Melody Dance Troupe and the Gund Kwok Lion Dancers were the featured performers.
