Club Scrap March Bookshelves Blog Hop!!!!!

Welcome Club Scrap blog hoppers! Since this month's kit was "Bookshelves" I felt I needed to make a book for this month. A while back I ordered a Tim Holtz kit that made a small Holiday Journal. I started out by replicating it using some book board and binder clips from Club Scrap. All the paper and stamps are from Bookshelves. I bound the book using Ranger sticky back canvas and finished it off with a Tim Holtz knob.

The pages are 3x5 and after making it I felt like it was a small space to work with. I decided I would use it for my book club and that I would make another one in a bigger size. This is what I came up with.


It is made the same way, I attached a small binder clip to a strip of book board using brads, and then two pieces of book board covered and all bound with inked sticky back canvas. The pages are 5x5 and I am so much happier with this size.








I even made some pocket by cutting the paper 5 x 10 and folding it in half then using washi tape along the top and bottom edges.
All of the paper used is from the Bookshelves kit. I used unmounted stamps from different  Club Scrap kits to embellish my pages.  These are just a few more of my pages.





Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the Club Scrap Blog Hop is Anne, over at  http://crzymomstidbits.blogspot.com/.  Have a wonderfully creative day!
