Summer Fun Photo Book

This cute photo book was one of the projects made at my May stamp clubs.  The base consists of 2- 5"x7" pieces of Pacific Point cardstock (these are the book front and back).  The binding is a 5"x2.5" piece of textured Tangerine Tango cardstock.   The bear, an image from the Under the Stars stamp set, is stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and layered onto a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.  The bear is colored in using Stampin' Pastels.

Letters are cut using the Big Shot and Go Go Boots alphabet Sizzlits die set and Summer Sun and Tangerine Tango cardstock scraps.  To put it all together, add 4 (or more) clear translucent envelopes stacked on top of each other (remove the protective strip to expose the adhesive, and adhere), starting with placing one onto the back piece (adhesive side down) and following with remaining envelopes.

When you have placed all the envelopes, put the cover on top, score the binding in half and place.  Holding it in the center of the binding, use the Crop-a-Dile and the 3/16" hole punch and punch top and bottom of the binding.  Finally, run 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon through the holes and tie in a knot on the front.
