Blog Hop - Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Graphic 45!

Hello friends
Welcome to Day 5!

Today, as a designer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® I am taking part
in a blog hop with Graphic 45!  It is a chance to be inspired and win prizes!
You all know how much I like Graphic 45 papers and my most recent favourite is
Botanical Tea so I couldn't resist using them on this book project.

I used two pieces of square chipboard and covered each side with the striped and dotted
papers from this collection.
 Easy and speedy to adhere with MyStik® Permanent Strips Dispenser - don't forget
you can personalise these dispensers.
I then discovered one of the papers had these little card images, they reminded
me of the cigarette cards you could collect years ago.  
I chose to set them out in a geometric pattern for the front cover,
placing Creative Photo Corners - Ivory on each one.

Inking the edges of them looks effective too. 
The die cuts added to the book cover are Sprigs, Back to Basics Tags and Blooms Three. 
I placed a tiny pearl on each Creative Photo Corner. 
 The finished book, the tag says 'Just For You' but I'm thinking it should say...
'Just For Me'!

Hi Christine, this is a beautiful project, and I love this paper pad, although I haven't used it yet, it's still in the stroking stage. Off to look at blog hop now.

Hmm, had to jump through a few hoops to make comments, but I seem to have managed to make three. Some of the links you gave us for visiting other participants wouldn't let me for security reasons?

I agree - I wouldn't let this out of my hands. I hadn't thought about using the cards as the focal point of a page but it is a great idea. The cards are so beautiful it's a shame to cover them with something else. Thanks for a great idea.
