Hello again Blog friends, you are going to have to bear with me for this post because it’s going to be another really long one! A friend at work asked me to make her daughter a book for graduation and she asked that I make part of it nautical themed so here is what I came up with for her….
It would take me forever to list all the supplies I used for this book but if you have any questions I will make sure that I reply to your comments. The paper line I used is from The Cutting Garden KaiserCraft Sweet Nothings Collection and Kim has this in stock. It is absolutely beautiful!
I couldn’t resist heat embossing the Stampin’ Up! Hello Doily stamp…. I am obsessed with that stamp! LOL!!! I added a beautiful pin, this is one of my favorite pages, I love how this one turned out. Its great to be able to just randomly decorate each page anyway you want to. I told Mary Anne that I would give her lots of places in the book to write little notes to her daughter so I added lots of tags for her to write on.
What’s a book with out butterflies? Need I say more? lol!
Mary Anne’s daughter loves sailing so I added some pages dedicated to what she loves, this is a beautiful stamp and unfortunately the picture doesn’t do it justice, I used chalks on the clouds and water.. it turned out quite lovely.
More nice little tags she can used to write on, I put several in as other family members may want to write notes of encouragement to her.
This is a butterfly I had left over from a class I did a while back and the colors fit in perfectly so I couldn’t resist the chance to use it.
And finally, this is the back cover *happy sigh* This was such a fun project to make, I loved working on every single page!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!
