Bright And Breezy Brag Book


This is the second project we made at Saturday's class: a sweet little brag book to pop your loved ones' photos in and keep in your handbag. So much nicer than that dog-eared picture in your purse!

The stamp set is "Simply Said" again (I love this set - so much you can do with it!) and again a really cheery colour combination.

I always think it's interesting how the slightest change can make the same project look totally different. Here is the same book, but with the Daffodil Delight swapped for So Saffron, and using Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White. 

A little inking round the edges and the dotty flowers stamp used as a background, and you have a much more vintage, distressed look. Same stamps same basic colour theme - completely different result! Is it any wonder I love to stamp?

Incidentally, if the vintage look appeals, I'm running a Techniques Class centred round distressing and vintage techniques on the first Wednesday in May. Hope over to my classes page for more details, and why not come along and join us?

Back soon. Thanks for visiting.
