Hop with Tombow and Core'dinations

We are blog hopping with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock this week! I hope you are ready from some Fun Ideas and Great Prizes this week from Tombow and Core’dinations.
If you're here from the Tombow Blog, then you’re in the right place,  if not then you may want to start at the beginning.

I am sharing a little accordion album that I made using a Silhouette cut file that I recently downloaded.

For the front cover, I stamped the bat image from Northwoods Rubber Stamps onto some white cardstock and colored the image using Tombow Dual Brush Pens popped it up onto the cover using Tombow Foam Tabs.  For the cover, I cut and embossed Core'dinations ColorCore cardstock and embossed it to add some additional texture and then sanded using the Core'dinations Sanding It Set to reveal some of the core color.  Isn't that cool?

Here is the album opened up.  I used the same process as I did for the cover to create the flaps for each of the pockets.  The flaps and panels were attached to the album using Tombow Power Bond adhesive.

I cut a Tombow Fastener Tab into smaller pieces to use as closures for the flaps.  Each of the pockets holds a fun chevron print photo mat.

Here is the reverse side of the album.  I added the scalloped circle/spider image using Tombow Power Bond for the circle and Tombow Foam Tabs for the spider.  The web was attached using Tombow Mono Multi.  

Here is a close up of the spider panel, I just love how the embossing/sanding look on this cardstock...Awesome, if I do say so myself!

I am going to send you on to Tracy Gruber's amazing blog so that you can see her project!

I love this! What a surprise, when I saw the first pic, I thought they were just little pockets with curved tops, but I love that they are envelopes you can slip stuff into. So fun!

A cute album for pictures of Halloween. You don't usually take as many pictures as you do for a bigger holiday (such as Christmas) so you don't need a big album. this one is sized correctly and will be easy to carry around to show off after Halloween. thanks for the idea.

Love the mini album. Can't tell if the flaps hold something underneath or if it's just pretty color/pattern variation. Would work either way?
