This was a gift for my sis-in-law. She's a crafty girlie, too, and we swap home made gifts at Christmas.
It started with a file folder, covered with a sheet of DP that I cut in two, to get the roses in the right place on the front, and enough spare to cover the back. A piece of lace down the spine covered the join.
Luckily, there was a sheet of DP for inside the cover, in the stash,
that coordinated well with the outside.
The book is made up of three signatures sewn in, and the ends finished off with a bead dangle.
The pages and most tags and journal cards are coffee-dyed.
The blue additions are napkin decoupage snippets.
There are doilies
and pretty vintage DP pages
and pockets and tucks aplenty
Lines were added on some pages, stamped with corrugated cardboard.
Book pages were a welcome addition, for tucks and pockets.
and belly bands
I hear she loved it, and is already planning what to put in.
I'll detail some other goodies later.
