Flip Flap page




Today Ebony and I spent most of the day in my girl cave. I finished this layout of "Ameya Rocks." Pictures taken by her mother while they were in the UP for the forth of July. All materials used are from Close To My Heart. Layout from the latest Jeanette Lynton book "Magic." "Magic" is loaded with interactive page ideas. I used a new product-Flip Flaps to be able to add five more pictures to my 12 x 12 layout, adding two 8 x 12 pages. What a fun idea! Paper packet used is Magnigique. All items are in the latest catalog, $2.50.
I am thinking this kind of "page" will have to be a January class.

A gift for a friend




I have been working on this book for a friend/student of mine whose birthday is next month, right after our class. I got the idea from isntthatsweet.bolgspot.com
Lorrinda tells you step by step how to build a book and points you in the direction of doing the research for all the trivia facts to put inside. The hardest part of this project is deciding what to put inside.
