Toil & Trouble Flip Book

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had lovely Thanksgivings! It was a busy weekend for us but great family time and lots of yummy food. As I write this there are two pots simmering boiling away for homemade turkey soup. The place smells fantastic!

Speaking of home and family, there are some BIG changes coming down the line for Ink N Inspiration. In the mean time I will be sharing with you the rest of the projects that I have made over the past month or so. I will write more on the changes in the coming weeks, but for now I wanted to share with you a Halloween themed project I made.

This Toil and Trouble flip book is my first every attempt at a flip book.


I like the way it turned out but would make the spine spacing pieces bigger next time as I stuffed it so much that the cover wouldn't close properly.

My Toil & Trouble flip book features products from the Toil & Trouble suite as well uses some retired Halloween and Paper Pumpkin stamp sets. Combining sets is so much fun! Don't get stuck feeling like you can only use one stamp set on a project. Mix it up!!


The front of my toil & trouble flip book features a shaker "orb" and characters from the stamp set which I coloured usingSstampin' blends markers. The webs are die cut from black foil (be sure to attach to adhesive sheets before die cutting!)


I used the envelope punch board to make my envelopes to hold my goodies. I am not sure how I feel about Washi tape but it seems to big in the flip book scene so I used it along with the Snail to adhere everything together.



The Designer Series Paper is cut 6 x 6", with two black cardstock spacers that are 6 x 1.5" and 6 x 1", both scored at a 1/4 inch on each side to attach the DSP together. The wider spacer attaches to the cover and middle piece of DSP.

I embellished the envelopes with various Halloween stamps/die cuts including the Spooky Sweets bundle and twinkle punch.



Lots of pockets for fun goodies!




Here is a short and silent video of me flipping through the book

This flip book was a lot of work, but I love how it turned out. Please comment or message me with any questions. I'd love to see pics of flip books you have made, post them below :-)

Happy Stamping!
