Le Jardin Brag Book

This elegant project is brought to us by Diva Courtney C. You can view Courtney's blog, Carpenter's Colorful Collections, here. She was recently "tagged" and has responded with some very funny little known facts about herself that are worth a visit.

Courtney's project is a photo brag book that uses five clear SU! envelopes as page inserts to display ten of your favorite photographs. This is a great stamp camp project and is easily adaptable to any theme or stampin' style. Just be careful, making these little books are addictive.

You can find a complete step-by-step tutorial by following this link posted by Corinne Somerville.

The recipe for Courtney's design is as follows:
Stamp Sets: Kind Thoughts and Baroque Motifs
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Kraft and LeJardin Designer Series Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Safron, Bashful Blue
Other: Chocolate Chip 5/8 inch Grosgrain Ribon, Circle Rhinestone Brads, 5 Clear Envelopes

To soften the feel of her design, Courtney sponged Chocolate Chip Classic Ink around the edges of the entire book. She used the Rock 'n' Roll technique to stamp the lovely little butterfly from the Kind Thoughts stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on Kraft cardstock; and then she sponged Bashful Blue Classic Ink along the edges of the butterfly feathers. Click on any of the pictures to expand and see the detail close up.

Thank you for sharing with us Courtney. We look forward to seeing your next creation.

Happy Stampin'! EdieB
