Christmas Presents...

Hello Peeps

Recently on my Desk on WOYWW I had some books as WIP.  I thought I would share them with you.  The blue one is my friend Stephanie's, a Quilting friend's,Christmas present.......

Papers are DCWV which I have had for ages and ages and ages.......  The base of the book and the TH mannequin are both cut from chipboard and painted with acrylic paint.  The mannequin is then stamped with TH flourish stamp.  The edges of the background cardstock is stamped with DI and flourish stamp (forgotten which make and my Craft Room is too cold for me to look in now).

The inside pages are made with pockets so that Stephanie can pop in notes, patterns, instructions etc....
The "lace" is TH die using the Snippets cut from the front cover sheet.

Here is the purple book which I will use as another Christmas present....
I cannot remember which paper this was and the darker pink in the flower is the reverse side.  The stamps used are the same and paint is lilac.  I have also used Snippets of lace on the mannequins. 

Similar interiors, though I need to add the card inserts in...
The TH Rosettes were left over from my Christmas Tree project, though they are flat.  The "Roses" were cut using Snippets and TH Pinecone die.  

I am entering this into the Playground as I have used some Snippets.  

Thanks for calling by.  Have a great weekend.  

Hugs

They look great...I love that you put in the pockets...great idea.
Those medallions look so pretty on these books.

The stamped quotes are so appropriate for these books! I think your friends are going to love them. Did dyou bind them yourself? They look so prefessional!

They are lovely and your sewing friends will love them - I made some books for my sewing friends a few years ago and they still use them now - you cant beat sewing friends can you - they are the best! Have a fab week - I missed out on CC2C again this week (despite having the two rosette dies and the ideas just no mojo to sit down and do) - hopefully will get my last T!m tag done soon though :)
