Blissful Book

Good Morning to all my bloggin' friends!

Well its morning on the Northern side of the globe - those down under should all be snoring just about now being that its 1am Thursday here and a chilly (and dark) 48°F !

I have been spending some time lately making up some cute little projects which my customers just love as much as I do and I do believe this is a good thing - well they keep booking classes so it must be!

Here is one I got from Splitcoast Stampers and its called a "Pull Out Scrapbook" and they are very easy to put together.

All the items I have used are available in Australia and the One of a Kind stamp set and Boho Blossoms Punch will be available August 1st from the new Mini Spring Catalogue!

Stamps: One of a Kind
Inks: Close to Cocoa, Whisper White Craft Ink, Purely Pomegranate
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate, Berry Bliss Designer Series Papers
Accessories: 1/4" Pretty in Pink Grosgrain, 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, Double Stitched Purely Pomegranate, Tag Punch, 1" circle punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Sticky Strip, Photo Corner Punch.

These are great little books you could give as gifts as a brag book for the grandparents, book of quotes or encouragement notes for friends or just to record a special time or holiday.

The above picture shows the book at its first opening. You will see the ribbons on each side - these untie to reveal the 'pull out' part of the book.

The above images show the book open completely with 4 pages on each side and one side being a mirror of the other.

Now are you wondering how I made that star with the Designer Series Papers? well look closer ... its not really a star but using the Photo Corner Punch on all four corners and making them meet at the middle gives that star shape! Cool huh? that was thanks to another Stampin Up demo Patty Bennett (thanks Patty)

As you can see these make awesome little gifts and you could use them for anything at all.

You can find the tutorial for this great little scrapbook here

Have a totally blessed day!!
