July’s Robotic Inspiration

Hi everyone! Maggi here to show off the first project from this month’s guest designer, July! She made this altered album using our new kit, Monstrous Mutant Robots from Outer Space and says:

“My inspiration for this album is this robot that’s where it all begins…”

July made the front and back cover using heavy cardstock and cut it into robot ‘body part’ shapes.

She added paint, googly eyes, cut a heart from cardboard and embellished the mouth and most of the robot parts with Stickles.

For the inside pages, July cut and folded paper from the kit and then sewed around the pages. I love July’s layering technique and her sewing skills! A sewn edge adds such a great touch!

She painted along on the edges (another added touch I love!) and then decorated each page with paper and pieces from our Monstrous Mutant Robots from Outer Space kit.

July’s use of fussy cutting (like the way she used the robot on the page below) is such a great way to use up bits of left over paper you don’t want to throw away but you’re not sure what to do with it. Cut the pictures from it or even just shapes and you have new embellishments for your projects!

This altered album is so cute! Join us next week for another of July’s projects!

Until then, go glue something awesome onto some awesome something!

Maggi 😀
