I have been busy getting ready for the Pampered Crafters Sorority retreat. Here is one of the 10 make and takes the ladies get to make...
This is a 5x7 journal from Micheals, that I bought from the $1.50 bin. By the time I was done I had a gift for under $2.00. I was inspired by a book box that I had seen while I was at Micheals.
I stamped Rubbernecker's Dandelion Border 540-02 and just one of the butterflies from Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free Set with Versafine Onyx Black and Clear Embossed them. I stamped them again scrap paper and and cut them out to create a mask. Then I inked up Rubbernecker's French Script Background and Rubbernecker's Flourish 30-08-SKU:530-03 and clear embossed them too. The Dandelions and Butterflies were colored using a Fantastix with Memento London Gray, Angel Pink and Rose Bud. Added a little Stardust Stickles and some Rhinestones. This photo was taken before the rhinestones were added.
The spine was Stamped with the Flourish as well and embossed with white embossing powder. Before I adhered it all together I put a strip of Scor-tape along the spine and added a piece of ribbon for a book mark. I used Scor-tape to adhere it all together. Hope the Retreat ladies like it too!
I am off to spend the day with my Mom and my Daughter at the Antique Sale and Auction and out for dinner. Wishing you all a very happy Mother's Day! Your comments are very appreciated!
