ATC Book

Welcome to day four in the  blog blitz!


Click to Enlarge

So many wonderful and inspiring projects this week!  The new release has beautiful stamps and oh so many wonderful dies!

I wanted to showcase as many of the new products as I could so I created an accordion fold ATC book. The Cover and Back measure 2 1/2"  x 3 1/2". The pages inside the book measure 2 1/4" x 3 1/4". So when the accordion is folded up you don't see the inside pages.

All the pages use coordinating color schemes of various Memory Box papers from previous collections.  I distressed the edges with a distressing tool and sponged them with brown dye ink.

Here are a few close ups of the different pages:


The first page use the beautiful new bird die 98339 Meadow Bird along with the 98355 Musical Interlude die.  I am in love with the music die! It makes such a beautiful border!   

Stamp Vintage Music using brown ink over the bird shape. Sponge edges with brown die ink. Sponge brown dye ink over diec cut music. Create nest with lace and bulap.

The next page uses the  Create Art stamped in brown ink over the lovely pink paper.  The brand new  Whisper Print Leaf was stamped using brown ink and colored with a watercolor pencils and a few white gel pen highlights. The butterlies were die cut with the Butterfly Chain. I cut them apart and sponged the edges with dye ink.

The center pages are covered with the gorgeous new Chloe butterfly die!

P1010204-1The background is stamped with the Vintage Record Sheet  using brown ink. The butterfly was cut from white cardstock and sponged with brown dye ink. I cut the butterfly in half to allow it to fit in the fold.  The flower prevents the accordian from folding closed but you could set it more to the right or left to allow more of it folding up.

The last two pages:


The second to last page  uses the beautiful new Whisper Print Geranium using brown dye ink.  The inside is colored with watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.The background is stamped with the Hope Collage.  The butterflies are die cut from the Butterfly Chain.

The back cover uses the new Flutter Vine die cut. The vine was cut from white cardstock and sponged with brown dye ink.  The Create is stamped from the Create Art stamp and cut to size.  The bird is from the Poppy Stamps dies.
