|The cover is decorated with Petaloo flowers, Wild Orchid leaves, |
Spellbinders die cut hearts, gross grain ribbon, cute little charms and sparkly letters.
I love encouraging people and I think this little book is perfect to give as a gift to a friend who needs an encouraging boost. I plan to fill it with encouraging notes, anecdotes, special sayings, verses and poems.
|I filled the pockets with lots of tags 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 as well as tags die cut from Labels 28.|
I used the KaeserKraft Teddy Bear's Picnic 6x6 pad, one of the 12x12 pocket card pages, and one 12x12 page for the cover. Here is a picture of all the tags:
|I will probably add more tags for my encouraging notes.|
|The back of the tags are stamped with Penny Black Love This Life Journals clear stamps,|
and JustRite A New Day sentiment stamps
Here are the back views....
|I added lace and more of the red gross grain ribbon.|
|The pocket cards on the back allow tags to slip under part of the card. |
The back pages are secured with a magnet to keep it closed.
Just in case you are curious, I used a black file folder from Monks. Open the folder and fold up about 4 inches of the bottom. Then fold over the left and right sides so that the back lines up.
|I cut off a bit of the tab to make it look neater.|
No matter what design you choose to use I think it is a great idea to give the gift of encouragement to someone in need. We can all use a little boost from time to time!
I hope you enjoyed this little book made especially for Treasured Memories Canada in Kamloops!
Have a super scrappy day!
