I picked up this little book at Michaels from the dollar bin and proceeded to alter it. I simply bent the binding apart to get the front and back off to cover them. You can see I left a couple kinda crooked when I bent them back ;-) I stamped WTG and the gifts on a Perfect Paper Panel and colored with Copic markers and paper pieced. Narrow ribbon serves as the ribbon and bows on the packages and WTG and the packages are up on 3M foam squares. I used regular sized Figgy patterned paper for the cover and designs from the 6 x 6 pad for the paper piecing. I stamped letters from Bling 'Bet for the title on Whisper White with Always Artichoke Craft ink and heat embossed with fine detail clear embossing powder before cutting them out. I didn't have any dark red rhinestones, so I airbrushed some clear ones with my Copic airbrush system. I don't use it often, but I LOVE that thing!! Confession time: I was not over-the-moon excited the first time I saw Bling 'Bet. But, as you can tell, I've grown to love it too!
Thanks for stopping by--I love it when you do!
