Whew! Lots going on! Now on to my project for the hop! I'm using Feelin' Fruity? for my project tonight How cute is this set???!!!!!!??? The minute I laid eyes on it I thought: RETRO!!!! It took me back in time and I could see the fruit on my granny's curtains and aprons. And, I immediately knew what I would do--a recipe album. I've been waiting for My Favorite Things to come out with a set that I could use for a recipe album. This was not what I expected but I'm thrilled with it!! I'm not going to go into a lot of detail since this post is going to be a long one already, and the pictures will probably tell the story well enough. Again, if you want any specific information, don't hesitate to email me. My overall "style" is sorta shabby, I guess, so I'm callin' it "Shabby Retro" ;-) Love that Typewriter font for a retro look.
I do want to point out that this book is a little bit GREEN. I recycled the white sheets that come with SU! DSP for the covers and pages--just cut them into 6 x 6 squares and glued them together--3 for each of the covers and 2 for each page. I feel so virtuous, LOL! All of the fruit is paper pieced with a little bit of coloring with Copic markers. I've done lots of distressing, both with ink and a sanding block.Here's the front cover (the back cover is identical, without any embellishments). I used the Bling 'Bet set for my lettering.
Pages 1 and 2:
Pages 3 and 4:
Pages 5 and 6:
Pages 7 and 8:
I hope you like this album as much as I do--I had a ton of fun putting it together and I'm thinking it will make a nice gift--if I can bear to part with it, that is!
I'm so glad you stopped by! Now head on over to the fabulous Candice's blog and see what gorgeousness she has in store for you :)
