I finally finished a wedding book that I made for the lady that let us stay at her house while we were in Texas. I would have been done last week, but I still had to get more pictures to put in it!
This book acctually started out as a CIRCUS book that we found in the dollar section of Target while we were in Texas. The first thing that I did with it was cut the edges off of the book with a ruler and an exacto knife. It was already the lengths that it is in the pictures, but the edges were round and in bear shapes and animal shapes.
I then had to cut the paper down to size so that it would fit on each page. This was definitely the HARDEST part! This paper is all from the Laura Ashley collection.
Once I cut all the paper down to size, I applied the paper with Mod Podge. (because it's strong and durable!)
I inked all of the edges of the book with catseye dark brown ink.
I used my SLIM JIM sizzix alpha on bazzill paper and chipboard to make the WEDDING title
Another hard part was making the pictures FIT into the book. My friend Edie and I are known for getting a lot of closeups and PRE CROPPING pictures, so I didnt have much room for error!
I didn't have much room after the pictures to add many embellishments, so I just added some rub ons here and there, and some flowers with a brad on the front. I wish the pictures would do the COLORS of the paper justice!
I hope Liz likes her gift...we very much appreciate the fact that she let 4 psycho scrapper girls that she had never met stay in her house for 3 nights!!! =)
