Put your foot up…when I was in a boot, I propped it up in a little trash can when I was sitting at my scrap table! Worked well! LOL! Log in to Reply Mae on March 1, 2012 at 7:55 am A quick question:: I’ve been making your albums for some time now and I keep seeing the same problem arise; once the cover is made the paper I use will crack at the binding. This may have been brought up before? I’ve tried covering it with another layer of paper (it cracks again) & the TYPE of paper doesn’t seem to completely stop it either. Though thicker paper doesn’t crack as much. How do you keep your albums from doing this?? Thank you!! Log in to Reply Laura on March 1, 2012 at 9:17 am Make sure that the joint is a MINIMUM of two thicknesses of your chipboard. Don’t be afraid to be a little generous with the space. When the joint is too tight, it stresses the paper and it cracks. Log in to Reply Jocelyn on March 1, 2012 at 10:27 am Mae.. I hope Laura doesn’t mind my adding another hint for you. Be sure to score the papers before trying to close the book. And you can use as a binding (the pink section in Lara’s picture above)support, peel & stick Linen Hinging Tape. It’s usually used to hinge mats over artwork for framing. You can find it in full art supply or framing stores. Probably in bookbinding supplies area. Just apply to the back side of the paper. It’s like a very thin fabric. Also use on the inside piece as well if you’re making a book like the Stack the Deck. Log in to Reply Laura on March 1, 2012 at 12:07 pm This is a good tip. I have never needed to add anything to back side however if you allow enough space. Log in to Reply Mae on March 3, 2012 at 7:31 am Thanks so much for the hints! I now realize that you’re totally correct Laura. Its only on binding where my spaces are quite small. And I hadn’t been taking the time to score them either, which could just make it worse. SO glad to have this figured out! Log in to Reply Jocelyn on March 1, 2012 at 10:29 am BEAUTIFUL new blog background Laura!

I love it, but can’t find anywhere you mention it. Also, when attaching the envelopes and base pages to the fins do we glue/tape both sides of the fin? I don’t find that in the tutorial, but may be overlooking it. Thanks Log in to Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
