In the giant stash of stuff Audrie sent me last fall was a little fabric book on a ring. Y'all may not know this but I started my life as a papercrafter by making artist's books with calligraphy and illuminations. I have fretted and worried over what to do with this fabulous little cloth book...until the other day when I had Papertrey's Beautiful Blessings out on my desk and realized there were enough verses and saying in it to fill the ten pages of the book. So I made this.
The leaves are from Papertrey's Turning a New Leaf...a wonderful set for CAS stamping. I used three shades of ink from Memento, plus brown, and heat set the ink with an embossing gun. The simplicity of the design keeps the focus on the words, while the touch of color (canteloupe, lavender, and pear tart) adds interest.
The book is a gift for a friend who has done me several favors over the past few months and who prays for me and my family every single day. She gives amazing hugs, too. So thank you, Audrie, for giving me this little blank book. You blessed me and my friend with it!!!
