Facebook Challenge for July by Dianna

Hi everyone, Dianna here with a new Project for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Monthly Challenge.  The first of each month there is a new challenge. This month's challenge is a color challenge! You can submit a new project that has anything to do with Red, White and Blue. 

All you have to do is become a member of the Facebook Craft Group and submit your entry on the Facebook Craft Group page.  The winning entry will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

I bought this super cool paper at Hobby Lobby and decided to create a 4th of July mini album. This is a two blog post.  The reminder of the post and mini album will be posted later this month. 

I start out with a 8-1/2 by 11 sheet of paper and score at 5-1/2 and 8.  Cut off the one side of the 8 inch score and corner the edges.  This is your basic page, from here you can leave the top open to create pull outs.  The score at the 8 inch is folded inward and glued.  The open side is what is glued to the spine. 

The spine is cut from 6 long strips cut into 3-1/2, 2-1/2 and 1-1/2.  Then I score at 1/2 on each end of the strip and the ends are cornered.

The scores are folded up and the strips are glued and "stacked" on top of each other to create the spine.  

I sprayed Radiant Rains on Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts - Stars & Flourishes Border and Corners Sets. I used Xyron -2.5 inch Create a Sticker on the frame.  To create the flip, I cut three pages at 6-1/2 by 5 and scored 1/2.  I used score tape to adhere the pages and a punch for the edges.  

I cut a strip of paper 2-1/2 by 6-1/2 and scored 1/2 on the 2 inch side and 1/4 on each end of the 6-1/2 inch sides to create the pocket.  I then used scrap paper and scored it in half - 3-1/2 by 5.  I used the Radiant Rains and had a little fun on the Stars creating a tie dyed kind of look.  I then fussy cut some scrap paper and fed it through the stars. I used my Xyron - 3 inch Sticker Maker to adhere the stars to the paper. 

I used a new item from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts - Medallions Stars (Coming Soon).  I used Radiant Rains on the star and inked the edges.  I placed a stone in the middle for some bling.  I then used some scrap paper to create some contrast. I used Xyron- 5 inch Create a Sticker to adhere the Star.   

Please come back and see the finished project.
