Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

Instructions: Take a piece of the Arianna Blooms paper collection and turn it face down. Take the largest die from the Grand labels four and lay it on the paper, then trace the outside of the die. Fussy cut it out. Turn it back over, and this is the cover of the book card. Take another piece of the paper collection and the largest die and cut/emboss it. Cut/emboss three more die cuts with white CS, each one smaller than the next. Take a score board and score each one using the center peaks as a guide. Score 1/8" on each side. This is your book spine. Take the smallest layer and stamp the images with black ink. Color them with markers. Take Desert sand ink and sponge the edges of each layer. Using the photo as your guide glue each layer together. Take two tags and add an eyelet and ribbon to them. Run the ribbon down the center of the book and glue the two tags to the bottom. Stamp the flowers in black ink on white CS. Eight of the smallest, one medium and one large. Sponge them with the Distress inks, and sponge the tips with black ink. Cut eight of the smallest stamens, one medium, and one large in red CS. To make the flowers watch this video. Cut/emboss one lace accent in red CS, and glue it to the back of the large flower. Add the rhinestones to the centers, and add them to the book. Cut four of the leaf flourishes and trim them into smaller pieces and place them around the flowers.
