Scrap Your Day - my book is finished!!!

Hoorah!!! I have finished making my book for the Scrap Your Day challenge. I made this from scratch. I cut the actual book from 2 and a bit pieces of A1 card as it is 15 inches long. This took ages. I then used American Craft Patterned Paper Pack - A La Carte Set Three for the pages. The back of this paper is coloured so I used this for the top of each page as it all co-ordinates. Every piece is inked around the edges. I used all 12 sheets to make the pages and so I ran out for the cover. I have used a different pack of American Crafts paper - A La Carte Set Three for the cover.

I have used American Craft Thickers Vinyl letters for the wording on the cover. Then I have used my beloved BIA to bind it together. And it bound really well!!!!

Cover

Pages

I am going to do my journalling on the computer and print it on coloured card that will fit in the white space to the left of each bottom page. This will include the month title. I tried using sticky letters but they looked awful so I took them off. Once I have put the photos onto each page, I will decorate it with some rub ons and other embellies!!!

that looks so pretty and I bet it will be absolutely lovely when it is filled with photo and journaling.
