Frosty Memories

I have been going to town making items to sell for my biggest craft show of the year this weekend. I great friend of mine gifted me with some gorgeous papers and I just had to make this book from one of the sheets!! The book is 8.5 by 8.5 and I used the Bind it all to put it together. All of the decorative paper in the book is from ONE SHEET of 12 x 12 paper!! Yes, I cut it in such a way it is used throughout the book. The cover was the first cut and all I added was the title!! Isn't it beautiful.
Then I cut the parts left in such a way as to accent the edges of the pages of the book. I used some of my retired TAC images for the embellishments.
This is the upper right hand corner of the paper and I put the stamp 'brrrr' on the top for accent.
Here is another corner with the sled. The opposite top corners are the over half of this square and they have swirls and snow in the paper so they accent to top of the pages.
Some of the edges I stamped snow flakes and added one of my retired TAC images of a deer to them in Charcoal ink.
This is the inside front cover and I cut the parts of the paper with the trees into two pieces, this one and one on the opposite page edge. I added ribbons to the binding and it was done! It looks so much better in person since it has glitter, shimmer and sparkles in the paper. I love it!

This weekend, tonight and all day Saturday I will be at St. Gab's in Mentor for their craft show. Next weekend at Lake Catholic HS in Mentor and the following weekend at St. Pasquale's in Richmond Heights. Stop in to visit if you can. I love to see people I know.

Have a wonderful weekend and blessings to all.
