Handmade Autograph Book with Social Paper Plan

Friday, August 4, 2023

When I was introduced to Social Paper Plan, I became obsessed. Like, need all the stamps and dies... I have collected quite a few, but I have been really loving her mini books and how she uses her paper pads and ephemera. I felt so inspired, that I even got the Mini Cinch when it went on sale at Scrapbook.com! Well, I finally made my first mini book - it's an autograph book for when we go to Oogie Boogie Bash in October for Abigail! I thought it would be also great to add in photos and other ephemera as we collect them when we go.

To make the book, I covered chipboard in different patterned papers from the I Smell Children Paper Pad and I cut everything down to A2 (4-1/4 x 5-1/2"). I glued the paper to both sides of the chipboard covers and cut out a scalloped black frame to put on the cover. For the inside pages, I cut up a bunch of white copy paper to the same A2 size and then punched them with my Mini Cinch. I used an orange binding wire and put the book together.

For the touches on the cover, I die cut "Oogie Boogie Bash" in black and green cardstock, glued them together and added them to the cover. I picked a few favorite ephemera pieces from the Boo! Halloween pack and added them to the cover as well. I glued everything to the book with liquid adhesive except for the pumpkin which I added with a lot of foam adhesive in hopes of it staying on when we're at the event.

Using a white gel pen, I added highlights to the die cut words and Pops of Colors in orange for some final little embellishments. I hope Abigail loves it and I'm excited for her to take it to the event in October!
