April 2010 Inspirational Scrapper

Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for April 2010 is our very own Resident DT
Nathalie Jane Lopez aka Cabbie
I am cabbie lopez and I am a stay at home mom to 4 boys. I started scrapbooking 4 years ago but ever since I was a kid, the world of arts has already placed a special tag in my heart. Aside from doing layouts, I also alter things, do minibooks, cards, atcs and love to experiment with different techniques. I am also a design team member for different sites and a staff contributor for scrapbook news and review online magazine. My style can be flexible but i am more into the shabby, eclectic and vintage edge. scrapbooking has opened a lot of possibilities for me because its not only about doing and creating, but its also about attaining friendships both online and local which up to this present time holds a very dear place in my life.

Note Holder Tutorial

Materials / Supplies needed:
For the outer cover ( cardstock ) : 3 ½ x 7 inches
For the inner holder ( pattern paper ): 6 ½ x 7 inches
Scor‐it or any scorer
Embellishments/ die cuts
Double-sided tape

1. Prepare your papers.

2. Score the cardstock at 3 ½ and 4 ¼.

3. Fold the scored area.

4. Score the pattern paper with the shortest side on the upper portion, at ½ inch and at 3 ½.

5. Fold the scored ½ inch area and fold the remaining scored area just enough to close.

6. Adhere double sided tape on the ½ inch area.

7. Fold over so that the folds appose each other.

8. Place the folded pattern paper horizontally ( the adhered part facing you) and score at 3 ½ and 4 ½. This will create a 1 inch space on the middle. Fold it.

9. Adhere double sided tape on the 1 inch space in the center.

10. Adhere the folded pattern paper to the cardstock. Be sure to check if it is centered.

11. Use puncher for the outer edges.
