Scor-pal & Authentique Paper Blog Hop!



Welcome to our very last blog hop of 2011!! Today we are hopping with our friends at Authentique Paper.

We are actually the *last* stop on the hop so if you didn't go through all of the stops you'll want to start back at the Authentique Paper blog

If you *have* made it through the stops then hopefully you also left lots of comments because each comment will give you a shot at one of the two prizes being offered. (A Scor-buddy from Scor-pal or an Authentique Paper pack, each valued at $20)


Now, for one more Scor-pal/Authenique Paper project 
from Scor-pal Designer Virginia Nebel:

Ho, ho, ho...just 7 more sleeps until Christmas!! Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

Today, Scor-pal is partnering up with Authentique. I'd like to share with you a cascading matchbook mini album.  I used Authentique's beautiful Splendid collection which was perfect for the family theme.  It is really easy to make, here are the steps:


Supplies: Scor-pal, Authentique pattern paper and embellishments, Sizzix and Lifestyles dies





You will need three 4 x 8.5 double sided pattern paper pieces (I used plain cardstock in my step outs so for clarity). Score each piece once at 3.5, 4.25, and 5 inches and fold on the scored lines.  Nest each page in the same order and you will see that the pages cascade.  Staple or stitch in the middle to bind the booklet.









To make the matchbook cover.  Score a 4 x 11 inch paper at 5, 5.25, 10.5, and 10.75 inches.  Valley fold at each score line.  Adhere the cascading mini booklet by using adhesive on the back of the booklet only and position it in the matchbook cover.  Use a magnet or velcro on the right flap as the matchbook closure.  Decorate and embellish as you wish.









Here are some close-ups of my mini album.   Authentique's diction words are fabulous, you get so many sentiments and words on a sheet and I love sprinkling them throughout the booklet.







Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to start at Authentique's blog and hop along for some more projects and inspiration if you've missed any of the stops below.

I am not sure if I did the hop right yesterday so I hop hop hopped along today and had no trouble getting from 1 site to another until the one prior to this. It hadd a beautiful candle but was in a foreign language and I could not find a link to get here from there so I copy and pasted from another site then went to the prior site and pasted the link to get here. Thanks for all the ideas and showing me MANY new sites to explore. Happy holidays to all! Thanks for the chance to win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
