Mini Marathon Part 3

The left hand pocket is made with a sizzix die, whilst the right hand fold out pocket has its fancy edge cut with a Nestie. The large red flower was just the right shade, it just had to go there. Tim Hotltz ribbon tape and tickets work really well with this Graphic 45 paper too.

This fold out leaves loads of room for pictures.

Another page that folds back to reveal extra picture space. The file tab and 'happiness' were cut on the Cricut, together with the little tags that are concealed in the opening of the opposite page

Inking the edges of everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink ties all the pages and softens the look of the whole project. These papers can look a little masculine, which is why I wanted to use flowers and ribbons etc wherever possible to soften it up.

Each of the left hand openings has a huge fat tag, cut on the Cricut, to give extra space for larger photos or journalling.

I have another book to make for Saturday. Hubby's sister celebrates her 40th Birthday so I will have to get my skates on. The hardest part will be deciding which paper is going to get cut up!!

See you for Part 3 later.
