Country Birdhouse for Creativity Abounds

Exciting times at Creativity Abounds as our next stamp camp draws near! This time, we're featuring the Country Birdhouse bundle. Each of the thirteen members of the team have put together one project for the tutorial bundle you'll get with purchase. We've all done a second project too to teach you during Stamp Camp. 

Usually on our monthly hops we give you a sneak peek at the tutorial project (that will still happen) and then we go on to give you a bonus project and tutorial on the same theme. This time we'll  be giving you a look at what the Stamp Camp Live project is going to be. You'll learn how to make it during the Camp.

So my project for Stamp Camp is a simple photo album. It's great for special events like a graduation, a special place or special occasion gathering. It would also work as a way for people to leave messages and memories for someone leaving a workplace or retiring, or even as a special recipe book. It holds about a dozen or so pictures, depending on how large they are and how you arrange them. 

I'll be showing you how to create the actual book and give you some ideas on how you might go about filling it.

Here's the cover. As you see, the album has a pretty ribbon closure.

This is an example from one of the inside pages. Of course, my granddaughter really does have a face! I just felt better obscuring it a little before popping her online. 😀

How you use and fill the album is up to you but I'll share some ideas and things I've learned along the way with you. 

Here's a look at the project I've contributed to the tutorial bundle. You'll receive the tutorial project PDF and kits before Stamp Camp and there'll be a video tutorial for each of them as well. 

Here's all the details about the camp and how you can get your invitation.
As you follow the hop, you'll see all the 26 projects you'll get to make!
