Glamorous Jazmyne Part 2

Here we are again with the rest of the Jazmyne 40th Birthday Book.

The left hand page is simply created from  1/4 of a circular scalloped paper, which makes a nice pocket for a large photo mat. The right hand page is finished with rub-ons with the right hand side opening out to give space for extra pictures or journalling.

These pages are very straight forward using chipboard pieces for the embellishment. Again, only the outer edges are fixed down allowing photos to be slipped under the chipboard as required.

On the left hand side the chipboard plaque is secured with organza ribbon which is held in place with a glazed brad at the top and the bottom. On the right hand page I used a large white rub on corner to break up the purple background. The flower is a chipboard piece and the pocket is placed on hinges so that it can be moved downwards to see all of the photo mat behind it.

The little flap down pocket on the left has a magnetic fastening under the Prima flower. On the right hand page I secured a K&Co scalloped tag with a glazed brad so that it can swivel out of the way to place a photo underneath. 

And there you have it. I loved working with these papers. Totally girly and very glamorous. All the papers and accessories used in the book are available here.

I wasn't able to give the book to the recipient in person, but I'm told she absolutely loved it, which is always nice to hear. She has quite a few events planned for her 40th Birthday year and has promised to let me see it when it is filled with all her special photos.

Now, what next? Maybe time for a bit of card making, or box decorating. Too many decisions.

Bye for now.
