Evening all, thought you might like to see what I made to give my friend for her 40th tomorrow. She's going on a cruise with her husband in a few months. So I thought this would be a good place for her to record her trip.
I found some K&Co papers in my stash, remnants from a pad used in a class project the other year at Scrapbook Sisters.
I covered a hard backed note book, made a wallet using a tag cut on the Cricut using Plantin's Schoolbook. I added a couple of strips of folded paper to the back of the wallet and added eyelets which I managed to add into the ring binder.
I wish I'd added some stitching to make it show up better in the photo but IRL it doesn't need them. I found a cute little "Ship's wheel" charm after I'd finished the book so I thought I'd add it to the flap
I stapled the velcro tab to make sure that and keepsakes are kept secure in the pocket.
I used the neglected Cropodile to punch holes to thread the elastic closure through, and cut the book plate using a Cricut Calligraphy Cartridge. After a lot of fiddling around with the uber thin Cricut lettering, I gave up and used my Quickutz Moxi alphabet dies through the Cuttlebug. I don't know if you can tell from the photo but when I covered the plate with Glossy Accents, prior to adding it to the book, it became domed. Loved the look so added it to the front with a generous squirt of Pinflair Gel to the centre and glue around the edge.
I'm using this project for the following challenges:-
DBD20, Anything goes,
Exploring Cricut, 123,
Lollipop Crafts, Anything goes,
MIM74, Anything goes,
Come and Get It, Anything but a card,
Little Claires 17, Anything but a card.
Thanks for stopping by,
