March Club Q Mini with Jen

Hi everyone!  Jen here to share another mini album with you!  I created this album using the Quick Quotes March Club Q kit.

Front Cover
QQ Book (1 of 5)

To create the album, I started with a piece of canvas (included in the kit) that was used for the front cover.
  • To create the inside pages and bind the book together, I cut 3 pieces of paper that were 6” x 12” and folded them in half to create 6”x6” pages.
  • The back of the first page was glued to the back of the canvas.
  • I then glued the backs of the next two papers together and so on, so that each page was two papers thick.
  • I glued a 1 ½” ribbon along the edge of the binding for even more reinforcement.
  • All of my pages were inked with Midnight Confessions Chalk Ink.
  • I added the Tin Type orange patterned paper to the front of the canvas.
  • I then matted the cutouts with black cardstock and added them to the front at an angle.
  • Rubons were added to the tops and bottoms of the title pieces.
  • To hold the buckles in place, I wrapped the ends of the ribbon through the buckles and glued them to the backside of the ribbon using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Glue.
Pages 1 and 2
On the first two pages, I added more rubons, cutouts, and gemstones. I added a chipboard sprocket piece to the center of a circular rubon. The chipboard sprocket was sprayed with Graphite Glimmer Mist to create a metallic look.

Pages 3 and 4
I added more cut outs and journal pieces, as well as chipboard sprockets and chipboard arrow that were once again sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I added two gemstones to the centers of the sprocket pieces to finish off the page.

Back Cover
On the back cover you can see where I added the ribbon onto the mini album. I glued the ribbon to the back cover only to keep the ribbon piece in place.
