Crafty weekend




I've had a crafty weekend for the most part, getting work on some projects done. Most of these are gifts, including a FLIPPIN' awesome one for my mom for Mother's Day. In case she's peeking, no pictures until she receives it!

The book I'm posting today is one I made for the (now canceled) art show. I was inspired at the Club Scrap retreat by a maze book that we made from large paper, and scaled this project down to use a 12x12 piece of paper. I also liked the idea of putting the book in a "wrapper" of sorts, since even though I used my Scor-it, the spine was less neat than I like. To make it even sweeter, I put a little elastic closure on it. The pages in this book are about 3x3. Since my last page wasn't glued to a cover, I decorated it with one of my favorite stamped quotes (Painted Desert kit from Club Scrap).

If you want to make your own, watch Tricia Morris demonstrate the technique on a webisode from TVWeekly.

Want to see the book in person? Check it out at the Copper Country Community Arts Center.
