Welcome to the Club Scrap Dahlia Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from the amazing Tina you're in the right place! You can start from the beginning at Club Scrap so you don't miss one single project!
So..I'm actually out of the country right now. Karen was so kind enough to mail me my Dahlia kit early which gave me time to create. Even with that extra time I knew I couldn't come up with something elaborate, and the girls on this hop are crafting superstars! So I went digging through my unfinished project bin and came out with the Hydrangea Stitch Bound Book. The colors are actually very similar with Dahlia being quite a bit bolder.
I traded out the cover pages and some of the inside pages for the Dahlia and used the Dahlia cutaparts. Here is the front outside cover and the back inside cover. It did take a little extra positioning to get the print just where I wanted it.
Each inside page is folded, scored and pierced for easy stitching. It's been awhile since I've done a hand-stitched book but it's like riding a bike. I cheated with the first two photos below because Kay's photos from Club Scrap are much better than mine.
Here's the final album with the decorated outside cover.
A peak at the inside. I used three of the cutaparts stacked on each other with dimension. I also used photo corners instead of adhering the photos to the pages so they can be changed later. I tend to compose my photos using the entire frame so cropping photos down is difficult. Many of my handmade albums use the entire page for one photo.
Thank you for joining us on the Blog Hop! Please continue on the hop to see what the very talented Donna's created for you.
