Gorgeous, Glamorous Jazmyne Part 1

So, Hubby's baby sister turned 40. Time to make a book. She is a really 'girly girl', so I knew she would like the papers. I nearly had to go into therapy to get the point where I could cut it up though. If you have never seen Bo Bunny's Jazmyne Collection it is absolutely scrumptious. Every sheet is glittered and the colours are just fab. I am drooling I know.

All that said, it could be too much on its own, so I decided to team it up with lots of plains and co-ordinating 'double dot' papers, which I think toned it all down just enough, but without taking away any of its gorgeous glamour.

The collection includes co-ordinating ribbons, brads, buttons, rub-ons and a 12x12 sheet of chipboard pieces all of which make putting a book like this together a dream. This pair of pages is very simple. A couple of pockets and tags dressed up with Prima flowers and brads. I have used the same Martha Stewart border punch throughout the book, which I think gives It a feel of unity.

This pair of pages both have flaps decorated with rub-ons - well you can't cover them up can you? The flap on the left opens back, secured with page flips and the one on the right lifts up, secured with a gold swirl. The frame was cut with my Cricut. Where there is a frame I always leave one free edge so that a photo can be slipped underneath (but I leave double sided tape in place so it can be sealed down later).

Last two pages for today. Pockets galore. Three small tags on the left, one huge one in the scalloped pocket on the right. Finished off with on the left with a chipboard swirl and three green candydots. Each of the tags has a matching ribbon and one of the gorgeous Bo Bunny glazed brads. The right hand pocket is finished off with a chipboard flower on the photo mat and two Prima flowers, again joined together with a glazed brad.

All the materials to make the book pages are available from The Stamp Pad.

Until next time, happy crafting,

well, what a creation, you put me to shame, only done a few simple cards today, my crafters block has set in ! I do think your work is amazing, it would take me months to do that, even if I thought of it in the 1st place.

Brilliant work
