Boogie: The Third

Clearly I had too many days off in a row this week, because I spent this afternoon making yet another journal inspired by the wonderful Mary Ann Moss and her awesome Full Tilt Boogie class!

I had purchased some 7 Gypsies book covers – they’re very cool and very inexpensive – but didn’t have the slightest idea what to do with them before.  Today I used the Victoria covers:

They’re the perfect size for a 4×6 photo album.  I filled the inside with Tim Holtz kraft resist paper.  I think colorful photos will look amazing on these backgrounds:

I also added a few sheets of ledger paper for journaling purposes.

And the outside?  Well, it’s very, very, very…pink.  I happened to have some velvet ribbon and vintage seam binding that were about the same rosy pink color, so I rolled with it.  And I’m happy to say that THIS TIME, there were no binding issues!  Everything went as smoothly as icing on cake.  (Now, for some reason, I feel like having dessert.)

Unfortunately for me (and fortunately for my dwindling book cover stash), I have to work the next couple of days.  Of course, there’s no reason I couldn’t take some of my paper stash to work and do a little folding on my lunch hour, is there?  Hmmm….

    This is impressive! The bright pink you use really pops here. Everything about this is pleasing to the eye. Keep up this momentum.
