Create a gorgeous Podium Book with the components and a Luminary page kit.

Tricia recently offered an online class to make an updated version of this book structure. During the presentation, students learned how to create an 8x8 podium book featuring the Rainforest Page Kit. After completing the online workshop, it's easy to repurpose the instructions to make another album from any CS® Page Kit of your choice.

Luminary Podium Book 2.0 - Details

To replicate my album, gather a Luminary Page Kit and the Components Kit. Use the paper assignments below when working with the downloadable Podium Book 2.0 project instructions and video tutorial.

(2) Paper A = Round Medallion Print
(2) Paper B = Dk. Purple
(2) Paper C = Lt. Purple
(2) Paper D = Gold
(2) Paper E = Cream Speckle
(2) Paper F = Square Medallion Print

The completed book measures 8x8". It features eight 7.75x12" inside pages that are folded and inserted into Club Scrap's unique u-hinge spine.

The finished album can be proudly displayed on the built-in "kick stand", or simply close the book to shelve it for storage.

Luminary Podium Book - A Visual Tour

The first inside page features a 4.25" flap embellished with a decorative border strip adhered vertically. The space to the left of the strip is the perfect spot for journaling about the contents of the book.

A Dk. Purple mat is accented with the medallion cutapart accented with a gold charm and ribbon. Separate the gold doily in four equal pieces. Add Bookbinding Glue to the back and adhere to the corner of the page.

Trim the border strips and die cuts to 7.25" and adhere to the back of the inside pages. I love how pre-cut photo mats are perfectly framed in the remaining open space.

The Pocket D contents make perfect mats for larger border strips trimmed to fit the 4.25x7.75" flaps. They're perfect for embellishing the plain white side of the printed pages. Trim large print panels (from Pocket D) to 7.75" to add interest to the right side of the page.

Trim the cutapart to fit on an Ivory panel from Pocket D. Another matted border strip accents the 4.25" Lt. Purple flap.

The "lovely memories" cutapart didn't need any trimming as it fit perfectly across the top of the Lt. Purple page. Trim two Cream Speckled mats to fit in the flap.

Don't forget to utilize the 4.25" scraps left from trimming the border strip cutaparts. They fit the short flaps perfectly!

Layer two skinny strips to create an anchor for the trio of square medallion cutaparts.

Create a collage with die cut circles, glitter ribbon tied in a bow, and a Sunburst Gem to mask the seam between the border strip scraps left over from previous pages.

A single Lt. Purple vertical photo mat is all that is needed on this gorgeous print. Thread pieces of pale yellow ribbon through a single hole in two Medallion Charms. Adhere over the double matted border strips.

Crop two large photo mats to fit side by side on the left page. The border strips are trimmed to span across the page and continue over to the 4.25" flap.

Trim the 12" border strip leaving a gap for the score line to allow the page to open and close freely.

This book will make the perfect gift to celebrate a special birthday or even anniversary.
