Hi everyone. I'm back with another project to show you. But first I want to thank my sister for threatening me to get this project out here or else. I love making things, but I just don't take the time to put them out on my blog. Please enjoy.
I just completed "A Year in Review" by Kathy Files of Paper Phenomenon. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
This will definetly be picutre heavy. I made the book for a co-worker who is retiring at the end of March. I love the way it turned out.
On the Slip Cover I used Tim Holtz Tissue roll. and modge podged it inside and out. I then used Andirondak Achohol Ink in Carmel and Butterscotch. I love the color combination. and of course I had to add something that wasn't a flower or blingy. so I went with masculine things.
Here is close up of the Key and Pen.
The next picture is a close up of the Clock. This is from the Bo Bunny Time Piece collection, I glazed the clock face with Glossy Accents. I loved the way it cracked.
Now I am going to go through the book in pictures and let you look. I will do some narrating on some of the embellishments that I did.
I used a Tim Holtz Ornate Plate and glued in a Key hole and dangled a Tim Holtz Word key for a charm. I was really going for masculine and I think I did it. This is particularlly hard for me, because I really like blingy, shiny and pink things.
I love the book there are so many pockets and folders. I am taking group photos of each of the departments, these photos will go onto the larger pages, so really the book isn't even done yet. I hope you enjoy what I have done so far.
You may have noticed that I did use other lines of paper. This is from the DCWV called Glitzy Glitter Stack.
I did a magnet closure for the inside file pockets for both the front and back of the book.
well thats it for the pictures. I really enjoy making this book. I love the design of it. I have already made three of them. One for my Mother (her birthday is at the end of March) I made it for all of the geneology work that she does for our family. I can't wait to have my sisters and her help put the pictures into it. I love hearing all of the history of the family, my mom has been gathering all of the history over the years. Then I made one for myself, (which I'm still working on). I loved the Time Piece Collection.
Well I hope you enjoyed the book as much as I enjoyed makingj it. I will be posting more projects in the near future. Please leave your comments, I would love to hear from you.
