Creative Imaginations Projects

Hello all! I know I've been a very absent blogger recently. But I will make it up to you by sharing not one, but THREE projects that I just completed. These are all for a contest sponsored by Creative Imaginations and Scrap Happy KT. Wish me luck!

"Road Trip" Mini Album

I created this mini album using Creative Imaginations' Studio Basics 101 "Rugged" Collection. I used Creative Imaginations' Gift Card Holder from their Bare Elements line as the base for this album. Instead of placing a gift card in the holder, I decided to create a door to conceal a hidden picture. The entire album is held shut with a couple lengths of blue grosgrain ribbon tied in a bow.

Inside, I used another Creative Imaginations element - a Negative Strip from their Narratives Collection - combined with a series of photos of my best friend's son playing in his toy car. I also added a photo to the back cover. Too cute!

Finished Size approx. 5.5" x 5.5" (not including ribbon).

"Summer Fun" Journal

I altered an inexpensive wire-bound book to create this summer-themed journal. For this project, I used Creative Imaginations' Studio Basics 101 "Lush" Collection. I love the playfulness and bright, cheery colors of this collection.

I decided to create my own dividers for this journal and used the collection's circle stickers to decorate my tabs. I also added an attached ribbon bookmark, and adorned the wire binding with some gingham ribbon.

Finished Size approx. 6.75" x 6" (not including ribbon).

"Hoppy Birthday" Gift Card Tin

I altered a CD tin to create this combination birthday card and gift for my brother-in-law. I again used Creative Imaginations' Studio Basics 101 "Rugged" Collection. However, this time I went for a masculine feel, as opposed to my little boy theme for my "Road Trip" Mini Album. (And I think I would have been completely successful if I had resisted going for the pun and using the frog tag!)

For the outside, I created a paper slide and adorned it with ribbon and my frog tag. For the inside, I first lined both the base and cover with patterned paper. Then I created a gift card holder adorned with the same ribbon as my slide and attached it to the base of the tin. I also added a ribbon-embellished tag to provide space for an additional sentiment and signatures.

Finished Size approx. 5.5" x 5".
