The Dog Days of Summer...

Did you stay home and enjoy lazy days of summer this year? You don't have to travel far from home to create a vacation album. Combine your love for dogs and create this fun summer theme album. The Dog Days of Summer Album is another way to document your summertime memories. Place it on a Zutter Display-it-all so you can reminisce all year long! When I create an album in advance, I leave space for photos and no text or titles. That way I can do that when I add the pictures or use the album as a gift. Here’s how I created this project:

Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner
Zutter 7.5” x 5” Clip-Board Covers
Zutter Black 1” O’wire
Zutter Acid Free Black Pages
Zutter Display-it-all
Just Puppies by Marco’s Paper
Paper Kit by WeRMemory Keepers
Ink – ColorBox

Designer Instructions:
1. The Zutter 7.5” x 5” Clip-Board Covers with a 7.5” x 5” pattern paper on the front and back covers using Helmar Acid Free Adhesive.
2. Embellish the cover with a flourish design that I cut out of pattern papers.
3. Add Just Puppies to the front and back covers using Helmar Acid Free Glue.
4. The title on the cover is created using alphabet stickers. Place the self adhesive stickers to cardstock, trim around the letters and rub an ink pad around the edges. Vary the height of the title using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots.
5. The album pages are Zutter Black Pages. Embellish the pages with Just Puppies using Helmar Acid Free Glue. For photo placement, add pattern papers to the pages using Helmar Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner
6. Bind the album using the Bind-it-all and Black 1” O’Wires.
7. Place the album on the Zutter Display-it-all and enjoy your summertime memories all year long!
