The Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter A

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter A.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their A element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

Accordion is the word I chose for letter A!

  The right page looks a little odd because my page is already in the protector because I used the 4 x 6 Flip Flaps!  Rather than just stacking them like I usually do I did an accordion fold!  I did this because there is a progression to my pictures and it would be easier to see the progression all in a row!  I also just wanted to do something a little different from the normal!
 The top photo is the Flip Flaps open to the right and the bottom is open to the left.
I used Outdoor Denim for the base pages and Cranberry for the fun shape I cut on the Cricut with Art Philosophy! I used Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the title! The yellow is a retired paper from Close to my Heart that I found when organizing recently and I am using that stash rather than collecting it!! To use more stash I found a border from the Zippidee (available still in Studio J) paper pack embellishments and used it down the right side of the page!

Sometimes simple is better and this simple page is full of pictures and fun!

By the way Flip Flaps come in many shapes and sizes, one for every need!  Check out some more Flip Flaps here!
