CD book

This is the book I sent into Stampin' Up! for the April contest (see last post if you don't know what I'm talking about). The pictures aren't great because I was in a bit of a hurry when I took them. LOL!! I think I was on my way to the Post office and remembered I had better take some pics.

The front and back are CD's that I covered with the Petals and Paisleys paper using sticky strip. I then punched the holes with my Crop-a-dile. I started out with the jump ring to hold the pages together but when I went to mail it I changed it to ribbon to make it less bulky. I think the ribbon looked better but I don't have a picture with that. Sorry :)

The inside pages are cardstock circles cut with the Coluzzle. The pages were then stamped and I added the pictures and used
the white gel pen.

The first page is Regal rose with the dots from Polka Dots and Paisley stamped in Whisper white.

The second page is Taken with teal. The paisleys are stamped in the same colr and highlighted with the white gel pen.

For the third page I just added the white dots along the top of the picture.

The fourth page has pattern paper on one side and the picture on the other and I used a piece of Regal rose to tie them together and faux stitched down both sides to kind of look like faux ribbon.

If you have any questions about this let me know either in a comment or e-mail me. It was really pretty quick and fun to make. Now I just have to do one for myself :)

P.S. Can you tell hubby was away all week but is now back so I have a little more time on my hands. They are playing outside now so I think I will go play in my stamp room.

One more thing. I don't know why there are big spaces between some of the pictures. I can't seem to get everything lined up the way I would like.
