Anything other than a card is this week's challenge and we (the DT ) are using either 7 Gypsies or Maya Road Products - I chose 7 Gypsies Album Book Journal to use to make as a Birthday Book - mine lost when I moved house and have been managed with note books or little noted in the computer - so - I decided it was time I treated my self to a new one.
I decided to deep the very simple of the 'Book' it will kept on the shelf and will be used regularly so doesn't need anything that will catch.I just used Magnolia's Fairy Dust and the Mini Edwin - sent by a Friend but I could't find to link!! I use Tim Holtz's Paper StackVintage Shabby and Spellbinders Fancy Tags, all inked with Distress.
I used a Stampendous alphabet and coated it with Glossy Accents. Tim's Corners will used when I they have gone into hiding whilst I was having my Craft room been blitzed and renewed.
I managed to colour one of pages - I really thought I was going to finished - HaH!!! I think I live at Cloud 1, Cuckoo Land!! Just 11 more pages to go!!!
The image for the outside image is the sweet Sarah Kay - Sweet Romance, I am coloured them with my
Prismacolors and the papers are Bo Bun.y - Welcome and I used the borderI coloured the border by Martha Stewart - Pansy and added Magnolia - Swirl and Magnolia - Swirly Lace.
Memory Box Cherry Blossom and Fancy Blossons - I love these as they don't take up too much bulk and are so pretty. A Heart Doily used as complete the page.
