Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: It Is Energizing To Begin A New Journey!!!!!
Today I am so excited to share with you my first project as a Design Team member for Paper Crafter's Library!!!!! Since books can be used to document a journey, I decided to begin my journey with Paper Crafter's Library by created a mini book to capture my thoughts about this experience! I turned to the Twitterpated Suite for my color palette, paper and accessories. I love the spring feel of the Twitterpated designer series paper! I even used the paperboard that comes with the designer series paper (to protect the paper from bending) to create sturdier pages for this mini book. I was also very excited to use Stampin' Up!s new Adorning Accents edgelit dies and the framelits dies! You can use them to cut through card stock, paper, and thin paperboard. I dressed up the cover of the book with some pleated satin ribbon, baker's twine, a mini pin, a die cut (Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die), punched flowers and adhesive pearls. Ooh - and I can't forget that adorable Twitterpated button :) The stamped image is from the Outlined Occassions stamp set - one of the wonderful Sale-a-bration stamp sets that you can select for free with a $50 product purchase during Sale-a-bration! If you are a Paper Crafter's member, you can log on to the member area of the site to view the video I created showing you how I made this book! An instructional pdf is also available to members on the site. Feel free to check back here tomorrow. I'll be sharing two of the other projects I created for Paper Crafter's Library using supplies from the Twitterpated Suite! :)
