Celebrations "Squash" Book!

I just love making these "squash" books!  They are so much fun!  The Celebrations Designer Series Paper and Celebrations Quick Accents are just the perfect products for making one as they already coordinate with each other and Stampin' Up!'s cardstock colors.  Another huge plus is that the Quick Accents are already cut out and are adhesive-backed so no taking time to adhere glue and no glue mess!  Both products are 12" x 12".

The cover (above), featuring a stamp from Party Hearty, "Celebrate You" in matching cardstock and ink, and adhesive accents.

The entire book, opened.  You can see that there ten squares for adding pictures; some of those have a fold in the center, so you can either cut your pictures or use smaller pictures on each side.

One of the larger circle adhesive diecuts, cut in halves.  These would be perfect areas for smaller pictures or journaling about the nearby pictures.

The back of the squash book with a Celebrations DSP print layered onto Real Red cardstock and a strip of the Quick Accents.

In addition to the Celebrations Paper and Quick Accents, I used 8-1/2" squares of coordinating Pear Pizzazz layered with Pacific Point or Real Red cardstock, yielding a book that is 4-1/4" x 4-1/4".  This is a great size to carry in your purse to show pictures of your family, pets, child's soccer team, trips or whatever you wish!  You may adjust the size of the book by using larger squares of cardstock.  These books also make great gifts and can be done for any holiday or theme!  I'm thinking Valentine's next...

Thanks for visiting today!  I appreciate your comments and hope you come back soon!
