Welcome back! Today we will be doing part 4 of our Creative adventure. Thanks for hanging in there with me on Wednesday. What a nightmare! But at least it worked out eventually. Today we're going to be putting more of the project together, so without further ado, here is your video for part 4:
Have you solved the mystery yet? By now you've probably got an idea of what this project is going to be, but don't be so sure...you may yet be surprised by the ending. If you think you know, don't spoil it for the rest of us. =)
Here are the non-video option instructions for today:
1. Add a monogram alpha (one for each letter of the alphabet) to each page of the album. Make sure the "A" is on the back of the front cover, and the "Z" is on the front of the back cover. Add monograms to the inside pages in alphabetical order. Make sure the patterned papers and monograms are facing the center and in the correct order. The book will be bound on the paper/monogram side of each page.
2. Add your journaling tags, labels, or strips to the inside pages. Since you can use 4x4 or 4x5 photos, there are a few ways you can do this: a) trim the labels/tags down to 1 inch strips and layer them across the top inch of the blank area (for 4x4 photos) as shown in photo "a" below; b) wait until after you add 4x5 photos and place labels/tags on top (see photo "b"); c) for journaling strips with 4x4 photos you can cover the area with a piece of patterned paper (4x1 inches), and then add the strips on top of the pp (see photo "c"); d) for strips with 4x5 photos add them on top of the photo (see photo "d"). **If you prefer to use 4x5 photos and/or typed journaling, you'll need to wait to do this step until tomorrow when we discuss photos and what we'll be journaling about.
3. Bind the project together using a bind-it-all, or a hole punch/crop-a-dile and large jump rings as shown in the photo below. (I used my Making Memories tool kit hole punch + craft hammer to make my holes.)
**Don't freak out--our project is not done yet! (I realize an important piece to the puzzle is missing.) Tune in tomorrow for the exciting end of our creative adventure. See you then!
