Wow! Day 6 of no wet stuff! Hose pipe by the weekend do you think?
Do you recall that I made a couple of leaving books last year? Well I made a third but have not shown it until now. (Mainly because I forgot it was in my "draft" list!) So I am sharing it with you today.
I used my lovely Grist Mill stamps from Artistic Outpost as well as Think and Wonder sayings. Each one of these books has featured AO stamps in and they are my stamp of choice for olde worlde projects.
The book itself was made using a Sizzix card die and chopping it at the fold. I covered it with TH papers and stamped, inked and attached a clock to the front and a key made with Martha Stewart paper clay and mould which I then inked and applied wax on.
Inside pages on which I stamped using Archival ink. This allows for people with oily or sweaty hands not to rub the ink off when they are writing their messages in.
The pencil and button stamps were brought over from my lovely friend Kim last year. Aren't they adorable? This was their first inking.
All the sayings are from the Think and Wonder collection of AO. I haven't shared all the pages where I used some more of the sayings as it would make my post seem too long.
The recipient was very impressed and surprised when he got his book. He had never realised until then that all the cards I have made him over the years were handmade! and so was truly delighted that I had made his book for him.
I am going to share this with the Artistic Outpost Referral for March which is anything goes. I am also going to share with the Snippets Playground as there are lots of snippets in there. Put the kettle on someone!
Thanks for calling by.
