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….
