Guest-Designer-Lala-Palooza with CARRI ~ ABUSYBEE

I am so honored to be a guest designer today for Alex here at You Had me at Craft! I have been a follower of Alex since the start and learned how to do chalking  when she posted a video for "LEARN A TECHNIQUES"  BLOG HOP back in June 2010! (Thanks Alex!) Time sure flies when you are having fun!

Today I wanted to share how I make a mini scrapbook using only one sheet of 12X12 Paper.

Take one double-sided 12X12 paper

Score top at 3/4" - 4 1/2" - 8 1/2"
Turn paper once to the left and make cut lines at 4" and 8"

Turn paper two times to the left; 1st 3/4" square mark as discard
2nd box mark # 2
3rd box mark # 1

You do not have to mark up your paper, you can just score and cut as you go, I just marked mine to show what it would look like.

I score my lines first using my Martha Stewart Score Pal

 Then Fold the score lines

Next cut along the 4" and 8" marks discard the top left 3/4 discard piece

 Now adhere strip # 2 to the strip that had the discarded strip

Then adhere the entire strip to the # 1

 Then fold!

Now you have a mini book! 18 pages long! Each page appx 3 3/4" by 4"

Now for the fun part! Time to pull out all those scraps and start decorating!

Here is my completed Halloween book! I hope you enjoyed my mini tutorial and project!
