Scandinavia or BUST!

Scandinavia Blog Hop logo 2017

I’ve been member of Club Scrap®  for a long time. When I joined in 2008 I was a newbie scrapbooker. I had a few necessities like glue, scissors, and cheap paper, but when I received my first kit I was in HEAVEN! I had no idea that supplies like that existed! Not only did the kit have all the supplies I needed to create scrapbook pages and cards, it came with INSTRUCTIONS! I am that person, the one who reads the instructions for everything. When it’s all said and done, I will know how to put something together backwards and forwards. I’m sure it’s an annoying quality to those who know me well, but I will take things apart if someone puts it together wrong. Well, if you’re going to do it, do it right the first time! (I hear my Dad’s voice in my head every time I say that!)

This binder is full of priceless information – instructions, tutorials and lots of inspiration! It is my collection of Scrap Raps. Club Scrap® used to publish a monthly magazine that was included with each kit. The current Scrap Raps are online on the Club Scrap blog, but anything prior to 2012 is in here!004E

That is where I found this little gem!

All I had to do was follow the instructions and it was “done right the first time”!

Of course I had to fill the luggage with something. The instructions suggest filling with standard greeting cards and envelopes…so I pulled out my Idea Deck and chose a couple of cards with instructions for the A2 size recommendation.

They all fit in there AND there is still room for more or matching envelopes.

My husband gave me the nicest compliment when I showed him my finished project, “You made that? Out of paper?!”

It’s easy when you know how! (WINK!)
