I love the overall effect, I was inspired by some great projects on UK Scrappers when I asked for help. Initially I started with 2.5mm thick chipboard pieces, but if I'd have continued with those I wouldn't have been able to get the whole thing bound with my my bind it all LOL, so having been inspired I managed to add some pockets, envelopes and cardstock to really bring it to life. The majority (bar one tiny piece) of the patterned paper is the Jesse Edwards Papermania range, not my usual taste in paper but used together it works really well - I hope you agree!
Hopefully the view from above gives you a feel for how the inside looks altogether.
A few simple flowers and some faux stitching, inked edges adds to the detail.
My heart pages!
The star on the front of the book was initially cut to go inside the book as a page but I hadn't considered how that was going to work with binding the points, so I thought it would have to be omitted thankfully I managed to bring the front together with it. The ribbon on the star were cut out of a dress, (you know the ones where you use them to help with hanging the garment but then spend all day tucking them back in, so I always cut them out) bought for a wedding at the weekend which included a star shape and the word star on the ribbon - a bit of credit crunch scrapping to boot!
So that's it all my lovely projects that I had on the go now finished, what am I going to do next?
