Renewal U-Hinge Album - Embellishing tips and tricks!

Julie Heyer

Create a Renewal U-Hinge Album and learn tips on how to alter the page kit cutaparts to fit perfectly on the interactive signatures.

Sometimes I struggle with decorating my completed Club Scrap projects with the goodies and cutaparts included in the kit. So I challenged myself to make the entire book and came up with some fun ways to make embellishing a snap!

Renewal U-Hinge Album

Build the Renewal U Hinge album from the Page Kit by following the detailed instructions.

Trim the cutapart border strip at 11 and 4" to create three pieces.

Adhere the 1" and 4" pieces on each side of the inside top flap.

Carefully hide the gap with a smaller piece of artwork from the sheet.

Cover any unwanted sentiments or quotes with a simple trick. Trim a circle with a 1" paper punch.

Ink the edges with Earth Ink, add a Foam Adhesive Circle to the back and mask the saying.

Adhere a bamboo charm to the punched circle with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator.

The 7" border strips fit edge to edge along any inside flap.

Place the larger cutapart panels onto the plain Brown mats. They were a perfect fit!

Trim the title border strip to remove the sentiment. Cut a large tag to separate the journaling area from the sentiment and artwork.

Place the border strip artwork flush to one side on the flaps as shown. Adhere the tag pieces over the strips to hide the cut ends.

Add uniquely different ribbon treatments to each of the remaining tag cutapart pieces to decorate the front cover. The metal gingko leaves tucked in nicely behind the tag raised slightly with Foam Adhesive Circles.

Let's take another look at all the completed pages inside my Renewal U-Hinge Album.

The trimmed tag allows these large embellishments to fit neatly inside the pages of this interactive album.

The sweet little bamboo charm added the perfect touch to the oval panel.

Inked edges and ribbons kick up the pages a notch.

Create mats with strips of left over papers and nest with the decorative border strip pieces.

Layer the sentiment removed from the border strip with mats made from scraps from the album assembly.
