Photo Book

I got to play with my NEW Fresh Cuts stamp set again, as well as the Eastern Elegance rub-ons I'd be hoarding. This little photo book is my last creation for the May mini VSN. This is for the What Lurks Behind the Cover challenge, where you are supposed to use vellum to add to your card. Since the VSN is being touted as a Book Club, I knew right away what I wanted to do! Plus, I hadn't made anything with new pictures of the pups in a while, right?? To see close ups of all the pages of the album, click HERE.
The first photo is the cover of the mini album. I stamped the {NEW} Fresh Cuts main image in VersaMark and embossed it with White embossing powder. Just a word to the wise... be CAREFUL when embossing on vellum... it WILL burn! Keep your heat tool a little further away from the paper than you would with card stock. I punched a Soft Sky Prints DSP Boho Blossom {yup, new punch for me!}, made a hole in the center and in the vellum, then lined up a felt flower, and attached it all with an eyelet. I hadn't used eyelets in a while, so I thought this was my chance! I chose the word Joy from the Eastern Elegance rub-ons, and adhered that on to the front... super easy, huh??
Here are the items used throughout the whole project...
Stamp Set: Fresh Cuts
Ink: VersaMark
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky Prints DSP, Pumpkin Pie, Vellum card stock
Accessories: Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons, Accents & Elements Flower Fusion, Antique Brass eyelet. Sticky Strip, White embossing powder
Punches: Boho Blossom, Round Tab
The book was made with 2 strips of 4 1/4" x 12" card stock scored every 4", then adhered with sticky strip to make the pocket.
Be sure to check out the rest of the pages HERE... the pups are OH SO CUTE!!!
