Stylin' Tilin' Album Cover

Good Monday Morning Everyone!

A few years back, Club Scrap celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a special edition kit called The Perfect Ten. Featured in this kit was a fun project designed by Tricia Morris called the The Stylin' Tilin' Project.

Stylin' Tilin' Perfect 10 project

I used the template to create an album cover for my Retreat 2010 album cover and now am finally getting my pages into an album from Retreat 2011 using the same idea.

 Retreat 2010 Stylin' Tilin' album cover

Here is a visual of some of the steps I took in creating my Retreat 2011 album cover.

stamped on white cardstock using CS hybrid inks with my By the Numbers UMs

created a background alternating the direction of the number stamps

matched ink color to cardstock

stamped on an angle and off the page

trimmed pieces to size after stamping following the template below
and began adhering to the album cover using Book Binding Glue

created this digital image of the album cover using the Stylin' Tilin' template as a guide

cut the cardstock to fit around the center accent area in the album cover using a ruler, pencil, and scissors

added embellishments and stamped a quote on white cardstock in the center accent area

Supplies used:
Club Scrap Book Binding Glue
Club Scrap Hybrid Inks in Lagoon Blue, WOW Red, Tangerine, Topaz (inked edges with Earth)
Club Scrap Wheel and Sprocket Red cardstock
Club Scrap Peacock Blue Cardstock
Club Scrap By the Numbers Retreat 2012 Kit - Ribbons, Dazzles, Yellow, Orange, and Dk. Brown Cardstocks, and UM stamps
American Crafts 12x12 D-Ring Album (Kraft)

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your week.



  1. Hmm I still have that Stylin Tilin project to complete...I wonder if it counts for a project cabin...

  2. Love it! Especially the concept of using the Retreat's UM stamp images to create the cover of that Retreat's album! Thanks for sharing the steps!

  3. Gorgeous! I have my pieces trimmed, and am waiting for the inspiration to finish it. I have a frame for it already, too!

  4. Beautiful and also great to use all those scraps I have. Club Scrap papers always go together.

  5. Love it - can I send you a couple to do for me?

  6. Fabulous fabulous fabulous....and super inspiring...if I didn't have a meeting like right now...this would totally distract me and haul me right down to play - the colors just work great and ahhhh its just so much fun! I love tily stuff, right up my alley! Thanks!

  7. Great idea....Luv it!!!! I am new to Club Scrap..Joined in May 2013...Would like to create this idea...How can I obtain the measurements for the template?

  8. Hi there, the cover of the album measures 12.5x15 inches. And there is an 1/8" reveal around the outside edge and in between the tiles.
