Caly's & John's Cookbook front Cover
Well something should tell me I should not continue with this project because it has been one do over after another. But I guess it is what they say there is no mistakes only new possabilities.
This is going to be a bridal gift for my neice Caly, my sister Pam's only girl on the 18th of this month. Yes, I am just starting so hope it goes better then today. It is going to be a scrapbook cookbook with pictures of Caly (a few of John) growing up and different recipies for them to try. I am going to leave some blank pages so she can add to it. She is a scrapbooker herself and I am sure will have fun adding some of her favorate things. Pink, purple and blue are Caly's favorate colors so are mine so I am going to love making this one. Also tiger lilies are her favorate flowers so I am using that as a theme in the cookbook.
Lots of tips though. DO NOT use crystal effects on a cloth padded album to glue on rhinestones, it leaves a wet mark that does not dry. Error number one. Error number two was when I did one of the embossed lilies I left too much of the embossing powder on and it came out kind of blurry and messy so was glad for that redue. But I did use the crystal effects to glue on the double hearts on the picture and it worked fine there. So I ended up covering my front. By doing that I got to add the Lavender Lace CS and the Whisper White 5/8" Organzia ribbon that I had not planned the first time around. Plus I added the punched heart and scalloped blue print the second time around. The bird and the saying are put on with dimentionals.
