DELICIOUS DOODLES



Delicious Doodles is a relatively young company with myself, Teri, as the Sole Trader. I have doodled and sketched all of my life, but only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009.

I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, some fantasy items and also some 'darker' images featuring Vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone!

Delicious Doodles also has its own Challenges on blogger and a shop blog page featuring inspiration from the Design Team.

And now you can find my images at Sweet Pea Stamps as Rubber Stamps too!

I hope you enjoy using your Delicious Doodles images!

Hugs,
Teri xx

Edwina's Creations Tutorials - How to Make an Album Fold Card - 11/7/2014

Click here for the CURRENT CHALLENGE


How to Make an Album Fold Card Tutorial

Supplies needed:
1 sheet Designer card Stock- 12" x 12"- Colorbok
1 sheet solid color card stock 12" x 12"- Recollections
score board and bone folder
Adhesive- ATG runner
paper trimmer
scissors
ribbon- Really Reasonable Ribbon
digis printed on white card stock - I am using Robyn's Fetish "Pilgrim Man," "Pilgrim Gal," "Apple Pie," "Pie Pumpkin," "Thanksgiving Feast" and "Fall Sentiments."" You can find them here http://robynsfetish.com/shop
Copics or other medium to color the digis



Gather together your supplies and set up your work station.




Cut your Designer card stock (print) at 11" x 11".   Cut one piece of your solid color card stock at 4" x 12" and 2 pieces at 2" x 2".




Fold your 11" x 11" card stock to form a large triangle .




Crease the edge with a bone folder if needed. 




Place the long side of the triangle at the top of your score board.  Score at 3" 5 1/2" and 10."  Then flip your card stock over and score the other corner at 3."




Turn your card stock so the long side is against the side of your score board as shown.  Find your 4 1/2" score line and follow it with your bone folder.




Score the paper at the 4 1/2' line as shown.




Fold all your score lines, creasing them with the bone folder as you go. 




This is how it should look right now. 




Place your finger inside and to the inside point of the square end piece of the triangle as shown, using a finger on the other hand to hold the tip. 




Start pressing the card stock with the hand that was holding the tip so that you have a square. You are folding it back onto itself as the next few pictures show. 







Once the square is folded back, press to form seams. 




You need to do this on both sides.  It is quite easy if you use a finger inside to do this. 




This is how it should look at this point. 




Now turn the little square over to the back. Do both sides. 




This is how it should look once both sides have been turned. 




Cut the tiny triangles out on each side of the pointed top as the next 2 photos show.




This is creating the top flap.




This is how it should look right now. 




Fold your card up and crease all the seams. 




Now open the card back up and add adhesive on the top flap.  Add adhesive all around this section.




Add adhesive to the bottom tip of the 2 small squares and along the center line. The pointers and scissors are pointing where adhesive should be. 




Now fold the triangle back over being careful to not let the 2 corner pieces go back in the wrong direction. 




 Fold the corners back into place like they need to be, like they were before you unfolded the card. 




Score the 4" x 12" card stock at 4" and 8".




Start folding on the seams. One will be a mountain fold and the other a valley fold. 




Crease the folds with the bone folder. 




This is how your card stock should look. 




Place adhesive on the back panel of the card stock. This is the section closest to the valley fold. 




Place the card stock in the center space of the album card.




Once you pull the card stock down this is how it should look. This gives you a place for 5 photos or 3 -  4 photos and 1 - 2 journal sections. 




Place adhesive on the 2" squares. 




Adhere the 2" card stock squares to the small squares on the album card.




Fold the card together. Slide the top flap into the inside of the top square. This will hold it in place. 




Crease your card on all 4 corners to make sure they are creased tight enough. 




This is how your album card should look right now.





Now chose your digis and color them. I am using "Pilgrim Man,"  "Pilgrim Gal,"  "Apple Pie," "Pie, Pumpkin,"  "Thanksgiving Feast" and "Fall Sentiments" from Robyn's Fetish. I colored mine with Copics.




Here are the fronts of my album cards. 




Here are the insides decorated. 




Thanks for dropping by. I hope you enjoyed our Thanksgiving Album card. I think this would be a great gift to give everyone who comes to Thanksgiving dinner. 

Until next time happy crafting. 
Edwina
