Welcome to another edition of Take Out Tuesday! Usually we provide instructions to complete a layout but this time around, we'll be doing something a bit different. Remember that limited edition project kit that sold out in only four days a few weeks back? You know, the one that we won't ever be reproducing? Yep, that's the one! I thought I'd provide instructions on how to complete an alternative cover of the album from your kit.
I'm going to be the first to admit, I'm mini album challenged. There. I said it. So the fact that the products for this project were already selected was half the battle I normally find myself up against. I decided to use this kit to create an album for my friend who recently moved to Cleveland. She had a series on her blog that she titled, "Countdown to Cleveland" where she wrote about what she and her family did for the last month in town before moving to Ohio. A perfect gift for her and an easy gift for me to put together. I have a kit to use and photographs and journaling for my friend. Couldn't be easier, right?
FRONT COVER : I fell in love with that polka dot paper the minute I opened my kit. Okay, so I also absolutely adore that exclusive striped ES tag, too! They're a perfect compliment to one another. The cover is my jumping off point for the rest of the album.
BACK COVER : In my head, the band of kraft cardstock around the front and back covers reminds me of a large band that you might put around an old book to help keep it together. By the time I finish this album, I have a feeling I'll need such a band! The back is similar to the front and uses more exclusive ES tags found in the kit. (Here's hoping Elle decides to do more wood grain tags - love how they look!)
INSIDE FRONT COVER : I wanted a place to write a short note to my friend and this (yet another!) exclusive ES tag was the perfect choice. With the addition of alphabet stickers and tape, I love how it made the perfect spot for journaling.
