How to Create a Denim Scrapbook Album

by Kymona Tracey

Hello, everyone!

Kymona here to show you how to create a denim scrapbook album with stamps, dies, and ink sprays. I have a newfound love for sewing so I wanted to combine my love of paper crafting with my love of sewing! I think you're going to love this.

Let's take a look:

charmedYes! Isn't this album the cutest thing you've seen? I love it. I'm always looking for inspiration and this one came from Pinklola on Pinterest.

I used a few stamp sets and one die set: Sewing Labels Stamp Set, Charmed Stamp Set, Mini Hello Stamp Set, Birds of a Feather Stamp Set, Watercolor Dots, and the Leaf Canopy Die Set to decorate this mini album.


Here's how to create this denim scrapbook:

From an old pair of jeans, cut out the two back pockets.

Decide on the lining fabric and cut a piece to the same size as the pockets.

Stitch the pocket and the lining wrong sides together. Do that for both pockets.

The stitching doesn't have to be straight. I stitched around the pocket twice to create more texture.

Measure the side of the pocket and cut another piece of fabric for the binding of the album. This side binding is 5 by 2.5.

Now it's time to create the pages for the album:

Using the pocket as a guide, cut watercolor paper into the pocket shape.

To add the pages to this mini album, I used We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the binding of the album. So that both holes are in the same place, punch them at the same time. Repeat the step again.

Set black eyelets using the Crop-A-Dile in the holes that were just punched.

Add two small binder clips in the hole then add the paper.

Decorate the front and inside cover of the album:

Add some ink splatters, metal gems, and a clear die-cut sentiment to the front of the album.

Decorate the inside pages:

Now it's time to watercolor the pages using Caramel Toffee, Jet Black, Ocean Waves, Warm Sunshine, Frosty Pink, Pure White, and Coral Berry Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays.

Wet the watercolor paper with water then drop splatters of ink and watch the ink spread.

Add some lines to each page using a Tombow Mono Drawing Pen.

Decorate the back of the album and add a tag:

To finish the album off, add ink splatters to the back of the album as well.

This is very cute and unique. I love jeans and hate to discard them when their day is done. This is so clever. 🙂
