Hello friends! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I’m excited to share my fun little project with you! I am using the new Golden Beach paper collection to make a mini scrapbook album and a bonus card with the scraps!
If you’d like to watch how I made my mini album and card, you can view the full process video HERE.
I used the envelopes as the base of my album, adhering the flap of one envelope into another envelope to make a set of pages. I used Art Glitter Glue for this step. You just repeat the process until you have the amount of pages you want. Once you get your last envelope added on, you take the flap from the very first envelope and adhere it down to the very last envelope you added. You can see the full process in the video.
Once my album was put together, I trimmed the patterned paper down to 5 3/8 square for both the covers and inner pages. This allowed a small Kraft border to be visible around my patterned paper. I decorated the pages with the scrap strips I had left from cutting down the 6×6 paper, along with the stamped sentiments and images.
I adhered my decorated pages to the album with Scor-tape. I finished the album off with some sequins throughout, just to add a little pop of bling.
Once I finished the album, I realized I had a bunch of scrap strips leftover, so I decided to make a card to use those pieces up.
I cut down a piece of cardstock to 3 3/4 by 5 inches. I added some adhesive across the whole front of this panel and then started laying the strips down diagonally across my panel. I added a piece of cardstock behind this panel as a card mat. I used one of the At the Beach sentiments that I had stamped but not used for the album as the sentiment for this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the Golden Beach paper as well as my quick little mini album! Have a great day!

Hello there! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts back today and I’m playing with the new Cool Treats paper collection recently released by Scrapping for Less. I love the combination of popsicle patterns along with the dots and stripes. You can watch the full process video for my projects HERE.
For my first project, I made a card using the watermelon treat paper.
I started off with a spearmint green card base. I added a mat of white cardstock and then the polka dot side of the patterned paper. I matted my strip of the watermelon pattern with white cardstock as well to help it pop. I added my sentiment along with some Blushing Red Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish off the card.
For my next project, I used an entire sheet of the pastel popsicle pattern paper to decorate a Dollar Tree mini comp book.
I cut 2 patterned paper pieces to 3 by 4.5 inches. I adhered these to the front and back covers of the comp book. I used part of the remaining strip I had to back my sentiment/embellishment on the front of the notebook. I used my last scrap piece to decorate the inside of the front cover.
For my last two projects, I chose this cute rainbow popsicle pattern. I started with the nail file holder and cut this patterned piece down to 3.5 by 6 inches. Then I scored it at 1 inch, 1 1/4 inches, 2 1/4 inches and 3 1/2 inches. I put the box together, added my nail file and then embellished with a tag punched from a scrap of the patterned paper and a sticker from a previous kit.
And for my final little project, I made a mini post it note holder. I cut down the remaining piece of the pattern paper to 2 1/4 by 5 inches. Then I scored at 1 1/8 inches, 1 1/2 inches, 3 1/8 inches and 3 1/2 inches. I glued in my Dollar Tree mini post it note pad. I added a small piece of adhesive velcro to help my holder to stay closed. Then I finished if off with another tag cut from scraps and popsicle sticker.
Thanks for stopping back by today! I hope you enjoyed these projects! They were so fun and quick and I know some young girls who will love them!
Hello everyone! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts back here today and I’m sharing how I finished off the Tropic Vibes collection (Collection 1) from the July 2020 Flavor of the Month kit! I decided this collection would be fun to make some gift items from, as well as some cards. You can see my full process in the video HERE.
I made 5 cards. I used the SFL Sketch #7, the slimline card sketch to make my first 2 cards.
I embellished the first card with the Tropic Vibes ephemera and the 2nd with the toucan from the Tropic Vibes stamp set. Both sentiments were from this stamp set as well.
I also used the Scrapping for Less Flavor of the Month Card Sketch:
I changed my design from the sketch just a little bit by using less strips and making them thinner. I also used the Scrapping for Less Mod Die set that came in the Banana Split level of the kit. This card turned out to be my favorite!!
I switched to some non-card projects. I made 2 nail file/emory board holders. These would be cute gifts or craft show items! This idea came from the Papered Chef.
I cut the patterned paper to 3.5×6 inches. Then I scored them at 1 inch, 1.25 inches, 2.25 inches and 2.5 inches. Once you fold up the score lines, you just glue the 2 flaps together. Then pinch the bottom ends together and glue.
I embellished both holders with some of the cute flamingo ephemera from the collection. The emory boards are from Amazon.
The next little projects I made were some mini post it note holders:
This design is from Inspired by Gram. For these, I cut my patterned paper to 2 1/4 x 5 inches. I scored them at 1 1/8 inches, 1 1/2 inches, 3 1/8 inches and 3 1/2 inches. Once you get them folded up, you can add your mini post it note pads (unfortunately, I didn’t realize I was out of them before making these). Once I add the post it note pad to the inside, I would add some small adhesive velcro strips to the the flaps to keep them closed.
I embellished the pads with the small flowers and sentiment from the Tropic Vibes stamp set.
After this, I was working with scraps on some final cards. I used a flamingo that I had stamped and watercolored in a previous session. I matted my pattern papers with black cardstock from my stash and put them directly onto my white cardbase. I embellished around the layout with some Blushing Red Nuvo Drops.
And here is my final card:
I decided to use the pineapple stencil that came in the Banana Split collection to create a background on my cardbase. I used Scattered Straw Distress Ink to color the body of the pineapples and Mowed Lawn to color the tops. I pieced together some of the scraps I had left and layered a piece of pineapple ephemera and sentiment on top.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my projects today! I hope you got some inspiration! I had so much fun with these!
