A view from above showing all the shapes inside
Sometimes it's the detail that makes the difference, I put the handle through the chipboard cover and used a metal heart I had in 'stock', but in addition to this I also added some shrink plastic charms that were something of a family effort a couple of weeks ago. I've had the shrink plastic about two years and never been brave enough to use it, but once I'd bought the stamps I just had to try it out, used some sparkly pens and hole punch then other half did the shrinking really pleased with the results - even remembered to write the words backwords. We couldn't believe how rish the colours were!
On the inner cover, I used the same stamp that I'd used for one of the shrink plastic charms, which has an empty scroll and filled that in with words used to describe my sister in the messages I received, my favourite being 'fiery little dragon' - from an incident when she was little!
The heart shape has now become a favourite in these books, although next time I may ensure that both sides are the same paper and I used it to put some great rub ons.
As well as the pale pink pages I also used some flock paper that I got in a papermania pack recently, to be honest when I got them I wasn't sure I liked them - but they worked so well!
