Lynda's September Project

I am so excited to bring you today's project...and since I scrapbook more than I craft you get more of those type of ideas from me!  I absolutely love doing vertical paper bag albums - being able to customize the covers to match the papers inside!  With this project - it was made for my sassy sister Allison's birthday!  (The one shown in last months post!)  I can't wait for her to see it!!!   
I started with the basic Creative PaperClay product, added my alphabet templates for scrapbooking I haven't used in a while, and my Xacto knife!  It is a bit tricky to cut out the letters with the clay, but the look of it was perfect!  As you are cutting out the letters, simply use your finger to fix any imperfections when the clay is being cut out.   
As I let the clay pieces dry out - I always turn them over about 12 hours in to things to allow for the other side to dry too.  After the pieces have completely dried, grab your paint and paint the clay letters.  I also molded and painted the 2 flowers on the left side, painted them with the same paint as the letters are. 
The inside of the album will be shown on my blog - Memories in Tyme tomorrow with each of the inside pages detailed, so check that out for sure!   I am in love with this clay - fun embellishments I can make myself, use a bit of paper, punches, paint and extra's to get the look I am wanting!  I hope you enjoy today's project!
