Booking It Scor-Pal Style with Tya Smith

Hi there! This is Tya and I wanted to show you the cute mini album that I made using my Scor-pal and the awesome Urban Traveler Line from Simple Stories. I was inspired by this mini album and tweaked the measurements and the theme to make it a travel album. Thank you Dawn for the inspiration!
Suitcase Mini Album

8x12 inch kraft cardstock
(2) 1 x 3 3/4 inch kraft cardstock
2x12 brown dot pattern paper for belly band 
Brown dot pattern paper for handles ( cut on Silhouette) 
(4) 4x7 brown cardstock for mini album pages
2 3/4 x 7 inch grid pattern paper for inside upper flap on suitcase
1 1/2 inch circle punch
(4) copper brads
Twine, and buttons for mini album embellishments
All Pattern Paper and Stickers are from the Urban Traveler line from Simple Stories

Step 1- On the 12 inch side of the 8 x 12 inch kraft cardstock, score the paper at 3 , 3 1/4, 7 3/4 and 8 inches.
 Step 2- Take the (2) 1x 3 3/4 inch kraft cardstock pieces on the 1 inch side score the 2 pieces at 3/8 and 5/8.
Step 3-Round all four corners of the paper. Fold up the paper so that the smaller section is on the top.

Step 4- Using the 1 1/2 circle punch, punch half a circle in the middle of this bottom section.
Step 5-Using the Scor Tape, adhere the 1 x 3 3/4 scored sections to the sides of the middle section of the paper.
Step 6 - Add the grid pattern paper to the top section
Step 7-Decorate the outside of the suitcase. Add the handles and the belly band.Add the tag and stickers to the handle. Just add a little bit of removable adhesive on the belly band so that it can be removed easily.

Step 8 - To make the mini album that goes inside the suitcase, take the (4) 4x7 inch brown cardstock and score each of these papers on the 7 inch side at 1 inch.
Step 9-To bind the mini album, simply take 2 large brads, punch 2 holes and add the brads to the 1 inch scored section of the mini album as shown:

Step 10- Decorate the pages of the mini album.

Happy Scoring!
