Well, the weekend craft fair is over and its back to normal (well, whatever 'normal' is =~D ) It was long and exhausting and very disappointing. We made no sales on Saturday and only 2 on Sunday, not even making $20.00. My daughter and I were feeling quite dejected, but decided onward and upward! We are brainstorming to come up with other ideas to sell our work.
Until then, here is another book I made. I'm really happy with this book (and there is another I made in pinks for a girl which I will post tomorrow). The paper is from K & Co. and its called Itsy Bitsy. Its for a baby boy book and I was surprised the size of the paper is 8 1/2 x 8 1/2", so instead of cutting down the paper, I cut the chipboard to fit. That made it so much easier to make the pages.
For the cover, I used EK Success border punch for the papers, and cut the title using the Gazelle.
One of the tags for this page has a place for the baby info - name, date of birth, weight, etc. I used a pen in the Gazelle and it "drew" the words instead of cutting them.
I've been making my own photo corners (which I will do a mini tutorial of in a future post) and used them for this photo (and a few other pages in the book.
I did realize with all the books I've been making, that they all have lots of pages! I guess I like lots of pictures, so I make books that will hold lots of pictures!
Thanks for stopping by...hope you enjoyed today's feature.
