2 Peas Blogging Challenge

A recent Two Peas Blogging Challenge was this: Share something you've created recently.

I've been working on this little accordion album as a take-home project for the store where I teach. It's a 6x6 album with 5
"pages" on each side. Accordion albums are easy to create and provide a lot of design options.

For this project, I tried
out the new Bazzill "In Stitch'z" cardstock. This new line comes in several colors and features basic shapes created with holes along the side or bottom of the page. You can sew through the holes with floss or ribbon (hence the name). For my project, I chose to cut around the hearts from the cardstock and use them as design elements. On one heart, I filled each hole with an eyelet or brad. On the other one, I "sewed" like you would on a child's sewing card with some pink floss from my stash. (That's about as much sewing as I'm capable of!)

I chose the new Scenic Route Loveland line to complete the album. The colors are bright and easy to work with. The chipboard set comes with several small pieces which are easy to sand.

It was fun to take a break from Christmas projects and work on something for Valentine's Day!
