Tutti Frutti

This is a fun and happy collection of papers to work with during these dark and dreary days! TAC is featuring the Tutti Frutti Kit & Kaboodle until Dec 31. I played with it last week for a while and really enjoyed it. I made this quick and easy 6" mini album without any stamps .... yes it is possible!! Here are the directions so you can make one too!
Supplies needed:
  • Two 6 x 12" Tutti Frutti SWIC card stock & scraps for embellishment
  • 4 1/2 x 6" matching Tutti Frutti SWIC card stock
  • Four 5 1/2 square white CS for pages
  • 4 large eylets & Crop-a-dile
  • Ribbon, adhesive, 2 silk flowers, Crystal Stickles, Mounting Cushion
  1. Fold the two 6 x 12" CS in half and crease.
  2. Line the pages up inside so you have 1/4" on both sides & bottom of book
  3. Clamp together with Bull Dog clips to hold in place
  4. Fold the 4 1/2 x 6" CS in half, crease, open & fold both ends to the center fold & crease.
  5. Line this up at the top of the book.
  6. Punch 3 holes through book and binding with Crop-a-Dile & attach eyelets
  7. Run a ribbon through eyelets and tie in a bow on the front.
  8. Decorate front with matching CS, matching Matchmakers CS, ribbon, words from word page, flowers, eyelet & Stickles.
  9. On the inside pages, attach a 1/2 x 5" coordinating CS to the bottom/top of each page and words from the word page.
  10. Add your pictures.

I when to my angel friend, Velda, home last night and demoed for her Paper Dolls group. It was great meeting such crafty and wonderful woman! I enjoyed good food, beverages (Dandelion wine), fellowship, crafting, brain storming and laughs with them. Velda and I were able to spend more time together the next morning shopping and I had a wonderful time. Be sure you gift yourself to the gift of time with friends during this busy season! Blessings

PS. More simple projects with Tutti Frutti coming!
