New Sand Castle Album

New Dimensional Sand Castle Book
The first in a series of dimensional chipboard books from Creek Bank Creations! I wanted to make books that had dimension to them, things we could pop up, put photos behind and stick things out of. Over the next few weeks you'll be seeing my newly designed chipboard books. All our books are cut from our heavy weight chipboard.

How many of our competitors albums could you cover with this amount of Mudd Puddles product....have it NOT warp...and still stand up beautifully?This sand castle book comes with parts, and 4 pages. The first thing you want to do is cover the castle parts, and water with Mudd Puddles. I used Malibu, ocean, and Tahiti. A THIN COAT of Mudd Puddles, then use the knife to clean off your edges. Allow to air dry 2 hours, then cover with wax paper and put a book on them overnight to dry.
Decide what you are going to do with the background of page 1. I covered mine with paper, and I covered the back as well. You could also accent them with ink, or paint them. While you are waiting for Mudd Puddles to dry, cover the front and back of page 1 as desired.

Once you have the front covered, and the parts are dry start putting it all together.
Glue the top part on first, adhering it with Scotch Quick Dry directly to the chipboard. Work down, and get ready to put on the next two smaller pieces.

Each kit comes with one extra piece of chipboard. It will be a smaller scrap piece. You'll want to take this piece, and cut small squares to adhere to the back edges of your next two pieces. I placed these small chipboard pop dots on the edges, giving the book strength. Adhere these pieces onto the sand castle parts using Scotch Quick Dry adhesive. Adhere the castle parts to the book using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.

The final step is to adhere the larger bottom piece. You will want to cut more chipboard pop dots, and adhere them to the castle just like the other pieces. I cut pieces to support the outside edge, and the lower bottom edge. It will help if you cut the pieces the same size as the castle parts you are trying to support. Adhere castle to page.

Now there may be places on the edges that your chipboard pop dots show. Just go back and cover those areas with Mudd Puddles and allow them to dry overnight.


Each of the new books has a scalloped page, and two other waterfall pages. All cut from heavyweight chipboard. I used My Minds Eye Sunshine Boy to accent this book. I love this paper!
I used
Good Day Sunshine Boy Punch Out
Good Day Sunshine Boy Beach Huts Paper
Good Day Sunshine Boy Bold Dots Paper
Good Day Sunshine Boy Boardwalk Paper
Good Day Sunshine Boy Hit The Road
Good Day Sunshine Boy Writing On The Wall

I used Maya Road Chipboard Alphas for the front cover, accented with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy.

It's a great deal of fun and makes me long for lazy days at the beach!

Do you need snap rings for your book?I used 1" rings. Purchase them here!
Do you need a crop a dile to punch holes in your book? Purchase that here.

The overall size of this book is 5.5" wide, and 8.5" long.

This is apart of our new book product line and will not start shipping until March 9, 2011.
