Crumb Cake Paisley Print Book


Another book made with the fabulous Paisley Prints DSP. I really thought I didn't like this particular print, but is quickly grew on me. The shimmer is added by me with a blender pen and Frost White Shimmer Paint, again... I tell you, this is an awesome way to add a little glam to your projects :)


I used the bottom right corner of the sheet of DSP for the front and paired it with Soft Suede cardstock.  No dividers in this one, it will hold all of my templates, measurements, and tutorials for projects I come up with or adapt, or print a small template for... I already have several in here! They were just floating around in different hidey-holes on my desk area. Now they are all safely tucked into this book. Sometimes I will write measurements for a project on a notepad, then want to save them for future reference. All I need in those cases is a title and the measurements, and I will remember the rest. This little book is about 5"x7¼" and has ~60 pages. It fits very nicely in a little shelf I cleared out on my desk, right in sight and in reach all the time.

This is the back which is part of the same cluster of flowers from the lower left corner of the DSP sheet. The layers were lightly adhered to the book, then stitched on with a sewing machine.


Isn't it just yummy?! I feel inspired just looking at it! BTW, I decided to use the Acorn Print one for ideas, sketches, and challenges. Should turn in to quite a little resource for me :)
