So tooting my horn, see it's not what you thought, but he thinks it's really funny when he does it. (he=large and small boys), but that's a whole other subject we will NOT get into.
Anyway, the local scrapbook super-store, Memory Bound, in Ankeny had a call for design team members-their first team- to help them toot their horn. So I submitted 3 items and was picked to be a design team member. Whoo-Hoo!!! They give me a bag of fun yummy products and I get to make fun stuff to display in their store.
Below is what I submitted, the photo of that layout is not very good, but it'll do for the web.
The little mini album was all made from scratch, and the pages/signatures were stitched together. I had found this project that I used for inspiration.
I also have this book, which is where I was thinking this technique had come from, and it does have one very similar. I'm fascinated by all the binding methods and there's too many to experiment with!!!
The "Treasure Chest", as LAD called it today, I made at Christmas time, his Christmas Eve box for a new pair of PJs and a present to open on Christmas Eve. Plus storage for the rest of the year! It's just a heavy cardboard trunk type box that I painted, stuck paper, rub-ons and stamps onto, then modge-podged. So off to explore my bag of goodies and then to bed!
