Slice of Summer By Shellye McDaniel!

Who doesn't love Summer and Farmhouse!  Today I'm sharing a sweet summertime gift that features the Summer Farmhouse Collection and the Robin's Egg Flip Album.

I prepared the cover of the album by first using the gingham stencil and a drybrush of red acrylic paint.  After the paint dried I added a layer of die-cuts and a chipboard accent. I also highlighted a few of the squares of the gingham with small pieces of leftover yellow gingham paper. 

As a part of the gift set, I crafted embellished paperclips and also stamped and colored a collection of kraft tags!

Moving to the inside of the album, I incorporated the SNAP Cards as well as a couple of freestanding pages created from pieces of scrapbook paper. 

Below I'm sharing each of the pages throughout the album!  Take note of the flip-up cards that were attached to the outside of the plastic sleeves.  I also made tabs for several of the pages with scrap paper.

I had an extra sleeve from the album that I wanted to transform into a larger pocket page.  To do so, I crafted two pockets by folding scrapbook paper along the bottom and turning up to make the pocket.  I attached each page to the page protector with high tack adhesive as shown below:

To prepare the ensemble as a gift, I tucked the album and tags into a cellophane bag.  The paperclip embellishments were attached to a piece of scrapbook paper with repositionable glue dots and slipped into a clear bag.  A band of kraft paper was wrapped around the packages and completed with a tie of ribbon!  Add a to and from tag and it's ready for gifting!
