Club Scrap Wisteria Blog hop

Welcome to my part of the Club Scrap blog hop.
This month we are showing Wisteria kit
I’ve made a couple card fronts and a digital layout.
I made the card fronts digitally and printed them out. I cut them out and attached on the backs.
The inside is either stamped or printed.
The layout is made with a quick page from the kit.
But I’m hoping to turn it into a small scrapbook or mini album that does not use page protectors.
I’ll try to explain. I make the layout 12X12 size and save it. I resize it to 6X6 and print it on a 8 1/2 X 11
size scrapbook paper. This time I used glossy document paper.
When I cut it I leave an extra 2 1/4 in on the left side. This extra will be used to put the holes in
and attach the covers. The first score line is 7/8 inch, the next is over 1 inch more.
Fold over on each line. Mark the holes and punch. After pages are printed, trim, score, fold and punch.
I put a couple small spots of tape to hold the folds together.
Stack up and insert the posts. A small album or mini book all finished.
This is first page of the album for Maddy, my granddaugher.
I want to thank everyone for all of the comments from last month.
Thank you for visiting my blog during the Club Scrap blog hop.
