My Spellbinders Book

I'm so excited to share this project with you guys. I was inspired by my fellow I Am Roses Design Team members, Arlene & Rina, to make a storage book for my Spellbinders dies. This book measures about 8 1/2" x 11", binded with 2 metal rings. I am slowly building my collection and I needed some kind of storage system. This is what I made. I didn't embellish anywhere else but the front cover. I had just received my I Am Roses haul and I had to use the flowers immediately. The 2" White Flower was misted with my Glitz Spritz Desert Moon Cactus Gold for that beautiful gold shimmer. I put two Pink Toned flowers on each side. Scattered throughout the cover were these sweet White Pink 2 Toned flowers. I curled the stems of these flowers with the end of my skinny paint brush. All these flowers were sitting on top of my favorite leaves, Small Natural Skeleton Leaves and Small Green Leaves. The natural skeleton leaves were stained with my Starburst Dark Chocolate Truffle from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

For a more shabby effect, I painted the edges of the cover with white acrylic paint. My favorite element on the cover is the old dictionary sheet in the background. I specifically chose that page due to the fact that it had the words craft, create, and crinkle printed on it. I could not finish this book without adding some pearl bling flourishes and a chandelier charm.

So this is my project for I Am Roses. I hope that you've enjoyed it. For a more detailed look at the book and the inside, please watch the video here. Thanks for stopping by as always!
