First things first - double check my pattern - my notes on build-a-page albums, my sample and some work in progress. The Build a page is design by Kathy Orta.
Next - finish a sample page and it is time to assemble the various kits I will be using. I use various tapes and Scotch adhesive to build these pages.
Kits assembled - paper for building, paper for decorating and various embellishments go into each baggie. I bag things up per hockey skater. Later, I will add photos and such, but parents are still tagging them for me. Their newspaper articles will be added at that time too - as well as some other items.
Here are the contents (almost all) of one kit - papers, embellishments and adhesive. I put the main adhesive I will use into each bag. From experience I know I will use two rolls of this one, some liquid glue and some scor-tape. I won't use a whole role of scor-tape or a whole bottle of liquid glue, so those items just come from my stash.
I forgot to take a picture of the pages all assembled, but here are a few of the cover going together.
Finally - the book is bound. A few embellishments for the cover so I can check out that I have enough paper and all (I do, but just of the non-background pp).
Finally - I have to be sure the covers are right. After the wonderful gals over on cricut.com cut my pieces, I realized that one of the papers I thought I ordered, I didn't. So, I had to adjust the size of the album a bit and the hockey sticks were a tad too large. It nearly broke my heart, until my son had an idea - cut them apart. Only those with this cartridge will ever know what I have done (plus I have another whole stick to use as an embellishment with a puck! Yipee!!!!!) Huge thanks as this is exactly what I am going for. I forgot to put the O back on before the picture. It will be done before the boys get their albums.
Those images turned out superb! I am definitely going to need this cartridge in my library. Next year? There are currently 16 juniors skating - if that holds and we have 1-2 join for their senior year - I will be really busy! May have to call in the reserves --- aka ladies who I hope to bring over to the scrapbooking side! ROFL
