Once in awhile I see a paper craft project that literally stops me in my tracks. It is so unique, pretty and well-executed that you can't wait to see more and learn how it was done. Cindy Major, my friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator from Canada, has managed to bring me to a screeching halt with this fantastic storybook. I'm proud to feature her as today's guest. Here's a link to her blog.
Get ready to put on your brakes!
half, covered it with a piece of adhesive sheet the same size, took the
protective peeling off and added the fabric on my cardstock. (Granted,
it would have been easier to use the fabric adhesive sold in the
Holidays minicatalogue, but I didn't have it at the time.) Then, I ran
the folded cardstock through the Big Shot using the Scallop Square die,
making sure the fold was inside the shape. Then, I folded smaller-sized
Baja Breeze cardstock sheets in two and used the Crop-a-Dile to punch
holes through the pages for binding. I used a strip of polka dot fabric
to create the binding of my book and tied the ends in a pretty bow on
the front, using a piece of satin ribbon folded around the middle of the
bow to decorate it further.
The white rickrack on the cover page was created using the Tasteful Trims die and some white fun foam.
To create every illustration, I always started with sponging inside
a negative mask made with the new 2-1/2 in. Circle punch. The stories
were printed on Shimmery White paper with my printer, but I used the
Broadsheet Alphabet to stamp the first letter of each stories, which I
then decorated with a rhinestone.
Thanks again, Cindy, for sharing!
