March Blog Hop
Welcome to Club Scrap's March Blog Hop! This month we're playing with the Bookshelves kit. When it showed up at the beginning of the month I loved everything about it and knew immediately what I wanted to make with it. My favorite activity is reading. I'm a fast reader so I read a lot of books every year. I have never kept track of what I have read and always wish I had. So out of this month kit I made myself a journal to keep track of all the books that come through my hands. The book I'm sharing today was originally a project in the 2005 Road Trip stamp kit. All the papers & stamps come from the Bookshelves kit. The embellishments come from various other kits out of my odds and ends box. Before I stitched the book together I inked the edges of the paper to make it look like an old book. The book used 17 sheets of 8.5 x 11 inch card stock, 3 yards of waxed linen thread, (2) 5.75 x 8.75 pieces of book board, (2) 1 x 5 inch strips of paper and various embellishments. The best thing is I still have paper leftover to make a few cards or layouts if I want to. Love these kits!
