Tin Tiles Doorway Mini Album

Hello everyone, Debby here. I am so excited to be your guest blogger for today. I've been a member for three years now and I am constantly awestruck with the designs, quality products, and variety in every Club Scrap collection. Recently Club Scrap celebrated its 15 year anniversary by releasing the Tin Tiles Anniversary Collection.

Club Scrap Tin Tiles Collection
The imagery reminds me of ornate historic buildings and antique architecture. The collection comes with directions to make ten beautiful 12 x 12 scrapbook pages, however, I like to make mini albums, so I decided to make a doorway mini album inspired by one of the cutapart quotes. The doorway cover features the dry embossing folder included in the collection. The inside pages feature collection papers, cutaparts and tags decorated with the stencil included in the collection.
Tin Tiles Doorway Album Cover 
The doorway cover is made from chipboard with a cut out window and transom. I painted it with silver acrylic paint as a base for additional embellishment.
  • The "tin" accents are foil sheets embossed with the Tin Tiles embossing folder, antiqued with Distress Paint.
  • Punch Collection papers with the EK Success Scroll Pattern punch and add as accents.
  • The window is an acetate sheet with an antiqued jewelry medallion adhered with Glossy Accents.
  • The door knob is a Tim Holtz Ideology hitch post.
  • Behind the transom is an acetate sheet dry embossed and antiqued with bronze Distress Paint.
  • The door was finished with black marker lines and black inked edges.
Inside cover with the cutapart quote that inspired the project.
Internal pocket pages
The binding is a Stack the Deck Binding designed by Laura Denison. The pockets were made from ivory #10 envelopes cut on the diagonal and slit on the side.
  • Each pocket is attached to the spine tab with Club Scrap Bookbinding Glue, and covered with Tin Tiles collection papers and Gold Foil Handmade paper from the Trees collection.
  • Pockets are further decorated with Tin Tiles Cutaparts, papers, and left over embossed foil accents.
  • Ribbon accents were added to the flaps and some of the pages.
Tags created as inserts for the pockets
The pocket tags are decorated with stencil techniques or papers and accented with ribbons from the collection.
  • Dark blue tag: Emboss with Tin Tiles embossing folder and ink raised areas with Club Scrap white pigment ink
  • Light blue tag: Stencil with watermark ink, emboss with clear EP then antique with Distress Ink
  • Grey tag – Ink Tin Tiles stencil with Club Scrap white pigment ink.
  • Manila tag: Reverse stencil image from grey tag (place over white inked stencil and rub the back to transfer). When dry, antique with Mahogany Distress Ink and rub with a damp cloth to reveal the reverse stencil image. 
I hope this gives you an idea of the possibilities with the Tin Tiles Anniversary Collection. It was so easy to make a delightfully coordinated project, adding just a few optional embellishment from my stash. To see more of my Club Scrap projects see my blog listed below.  
Thank you for reading and happy crafting!
