Sorry for the play on words but could not resist.
This is another book I did recently as a class that went over so well I had to run the class a second time and I am still getting orders for it. We offered it originally in Blue/Green combo for Boys and Pink/Purple combo for Girls, but then someone asked for one that could go either for a boy or a girl and this is what I came up with. I think this is my favorite of them all actually.
Here is another view...

And one more...this page if done right will hold a 4 x 6 picture without cropping!
and here they are in blue and pink...

What do you think ... Should I make these to sell locally? I have been told I should but would like more input before deciding.

Father's Day Project

Thought it would be nice to create a great project for the dad's in our lives. This word book gives plenty of places for pictures and journalling.

I chose a vintage feel and deep colors for this project to keep it masculine looking. It is bound together with my Bind-It-All.I taugh this as a class this past week and everyone really seemed to enjoy it. I hope you like it.
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Cranberry Crisp and So Saffron. DS paper is SU Sentimental Journey (unfortunately discontinued and not replaced with another vintage style paper). Wish I would have ordered more of this paper bofore it was discontinued, but I thought they might have a new vintage style paper. This is also single sided paper, which I like when I am glueing it down, so i don't feel like I am wasting a side. Maybe Stampin Up will come out with matching single sided papers for all the Double sided papers thay have. Does anyone else think this would be a good idea?
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Cranberry Crisp and Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Headline Numbers, Ephemera, Stamp of Authenticity, Open for Trade, Letters from friends, Travel Post, Thoughts of Father, Genuine Article, Best Blossoms, One of a Kind, All Year Cheer ll, and Circle of now that's a list of stamps... and one stamp from Heather's Stamping Haven. It was used on the postcard to give the place for the address.
Other: Bind it All, Various SU punches and other punches, Watercolor crayons, Grosgrain ribbon, Brads, dollar store paper clip, Pop ups, edge distresser. sponging.

Here is a couple of images from the interior of the book...

thanks for looking,
