Hello friends! I’m in love with the new Donna Salazar Antiquities line! Each one of the papers are gorgeous and are full of shabby goodness! I’m so happy to be a Guest Designer for Donna for 2011-2012. I dressed up my grungy little Gate Fold Album with Silver Fox Smooch and Colorbox Fluid Chalk inkpads. The Chestnut Roan and Amber Clay inkpads are a great combination with my album.
Wanna make your own? Here’s how!
This is similar to the Gate Fold Album I recently posted a tutorial for but I have not completely covered the front and back covers. I wanted to leave my corrugated cardboard exposed.
Step 1- Using corrugated cardboard, Cut (2) 3.50" x 5.00" and (1) 5.00" x 7.00"
Step 2-Distress and ink edges using the distezz-it all, and Chestnut Roan and Amber Clay ink.
Step 3- Cut the spines and inner pages
(3) 3" x 4" and (3) 4” x 5” (inner)
(2) 5” x 6” (spines)
Step 4- Score the spines at 1,2,3,4,5” (Mine is cut with g.c.d. studios, Ashley Ella Blue Collection)
Step 5- Fold and use Zip Dry adhesive in the valley sections that will face the outside. (the fold used on the spine is called peak and valley)
Step 6- Adhere the spines to the 5.00" x 7.00" corrugated cardboard.
Step 7-Clip covers to spines and let dry.
Step 8- Decorate the cover as desired. I’ve added some sewing and a piece I cut off another sheet of designer paper.
Step 9- Use Zip Dry to adhere the inner pages. I’ve added some Smooch to some of my pages.
