Guest Designing at The Outlawz

Hello Friends,

I was asked to Guest Design with The Outlawz Color Challenge team this month. I used to belong to the team so this is almost like old times and a nice way to end off this year.

This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. You can choose a row or column, vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I chose diagonally from top-left to bottom-right for my inspiration and a one-sheet mini album for my project.

There are many tutorials on You Tube for making an album like this from one 12x12 cardstock or designer paper. Since I did not have the necessary colours in a double-sided designer paper, I glued two single-sided sheets together. It gave me the pattern and strength I needed for the project.

I made a little band to hold my booklet closed, decorated with a double-layered snowflake that I made from a stamp.
The top right corner looked a little rough to me so I affixed a button. It does make getting the band off a bit challenging, but I think it looks better.
The design makes 8 pockets for holding tags, which I will add at a later time. I will probably have to adjust the band then too. I think I may try using Velcro so opening and closing the album will be easier. As you can probably tell, I was in a bit of a rush making this project.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you will try making one of these albums as they are really quite simple. And if you are in need of a little creative inspiration, drop by The Outlawz Challenges blog. They have weekly challenges in seven categories (one for every day of the week) and a monthly progressive freebie challenge as well.

Hugs & smiles,
