A Book with a Difference

Hello!

I'm a book lover from way back, in fact I had the pleasure of working in a bookstore for two years before I started writing for magazines and newspapers. It was heaven being surrounded by good books all day, and ordering more books, and recommending books, and smelling books (that's just ONE of my idiosyncracies!!).

But this is a different kind of book, and I like it for a whole lot of other reasons:
1. It's easy to make
2. It's beautiful
3. You can fill it with anything you want - I chose cards.
And here it is:
It's hard to tell in the photo but the title is heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and spritzed with Gold Smooch Spritz. It's also dry embossed with the Framed Tulips embossing folder and sponged with Soft Suede.

The ribbon is Basic Black 5/8" Satin. The stamp sets used are the Level Three Hostess set Occasional Quotes, and the flower images are from Fabulous Florets in the new Summer Mini... have you checked it out yet???

If you come back tomorrow you will see what's inside....

Thanks for stopping by! If you haven't received a Summer Mini catalogue please let me know and I'll make sure you get one.

The directions for making the book box can be purchased from Butternut Sage Designs

Happy Stamping!
