As predicted, I haven't had a lot of time to craft and play this month. However, it hasn't stopped me from loosening the strings around my purse and spending a little online. One of my purchases was the blank book covers by Neelz Expressions. I saw these at the Stitches show on the Tando stand and there and then, knew I had to have them.
So when they hit the stores at the beginning of the month, I popped both the Ancient & Squared Off versions in my basket. So, behind the scenes here, whenever I had a few minutes, I'd be dabbling away with the Ancient book kit.
And though it doesn't look it, in the final cut, there was a heck of a lot of time put into it. The painting of the edges, the cutting out of the paper & the sanding of all those many, many curves. It took quite some patience on my part. But it was worth it.
However, as much as I love the design and it's official purpose as book covers, I had the urge instead, to create a frame out of it.
So with the help of my newest purchase of Spellbinders Elegant Card Maker Labels 4 Die, I created a simple, elegant frame design on the inside.
And there you have it. I may not have been posting here very often but I have been keeping my hand in with creating and crafting. Not sure what I'd do if I wasn't cutting paper up of an evening.
