Here it is. Like I mentioned, I like to create my mini scrapbooks before traveling. I will be taking this to Denver with me.
I just love the colors. Makes me feel young again like a little girl. So fresh! Love how the flowers flow across the cover and look realistic.
Stamp sets used are Doodle This, Rough Edges Alphabets, and Looks Like Spring.
I made this book out of chipboard. Covered with Barely Banana cardstock. Other cardstock colors are: Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, and Confetti White. I also used Certainly Celery Prints Designer Series Paper. Scalloping made with 1/2″ circle punches and added soft subtles brads. “C” (for convention) is from On Board Simon Lower covered and sanded.
The tag was made with a tag punch and accented with chipboard heart and rhinestone brad. Secured to cover with linen thread. I added two buttons stacked on top of one another to the center of the flowers with linen thread.
I kind of tried to organize the days in sequence to our so-called itinerary. The book has 24 pages total. I can add more tags when I come back home. Tags created with Round Tag punch. Every other page has coordinating ribbons (celery, apricot, rose, light pink, and taupe grosgrain ribbon attached with soft subtles colored brads).
For the stitching, I originally paper pierced and faux-stitched with a Close to Cocoa stampin’ write marker….didn’t like it. I went over it with a white uniball gel pen, and let me tell ya, looks so real.
Book size & inside pages: 5 1/2″ x 7 7/8″
left side celery strip: 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Circle: created with coluzzle cutting system
Will show inside pages when I return from convention and our journey through some states:)
