Serentity with a Flip

Pat Huntoon here. I am thrilled to be a guest blogger today! I am a huge Club Scrap fan. I started my membership in June 2002, four months before I even started the Technique Junkie Newsletter! Scrapbooking has always been my first passion, and Club Scrap makes it easy to create beautiful pages and albums with ease. Plus, with stamps and accessories that match perfectly, is is easy to Stampbook.

When I first opened the beautiful September kit, Serenity, I was struck by the, well, serene colors and the wonderful accessories, die cuts and stamps. The kit reminded me of the marsh my in-laws live on in Savannah, so I decided to make my Mother-in-law a mini-album celebrating one of our trips to their Savannah home.

I made a Pocket Flip Album, which uses 5 pieces of 12 x 12" paper and one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" paper. The Album is one of the 35 pdf tutorials from the Technique Junkie Newsletter Mini Album Mania CD. You can download the pdf for the Pocket Flip Album HERE.

That little album at the top of the page? It opens to it's full glory like this:

And  it has additional pockets for more pictures and journaling, too! Every section you see above has an area that closes, with more areas on the opposite sides for additional pictures and art. Here are some more views of the album. Click on any picture to enlarge:

Believe it or not, there are even MORE views of this album! Not only that, but I have PLENTY of paper left in my kit for so many more pages and/or albums.

Now the moment of truth comes...can I bear to part with the album to give it to my mother-in-law?

Thank you, Club Scrap, for allowing me to show my album, and for continuing to produce such a beautiful product year after year. I am a lifelong fan!
