End of School Year - Part 2

Hi There

Some of you may remember the daughter of a friend of mine requested an autograph book for when she left Primary School to go to Senior School.
Well this is my finished article. I had to try and not go over the top as her big sister didn't want me to make it better then hers!

This is the front of her book. It was 6x4" greyboard, covered with red Inka-Gold. The 2 large flowers were from a set by Bobunny. The square in the middle is a tag by Making Memories, with 3 rub ons by Kaisercraft. The swirls are peel offs. The book was bound together using my Bind it All and ribbons and fibres ties around the wires.

The inside Cover was stamped using Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and spun sugar. The stamps are by Inkadinkadoo,  Artistic Flourish and Gem Stone Flourish.

The inside pages were all stamped onto, leaving enough room for all the messages from her friends.

This is the finished book, she was delighted with it when I saw her at the weekend. A lasting reminder of friends she was at Primary School with. Better than them signing her shirt! 

Happy Crafting


  1. What a lovely idea and I love the swirls on each page :D

  2. What a lovely idea & a lovely gift too.

  3. Very pretty and Lovely idea :)

  4. That's gorgeous, what a lucky girl! At our school they give the children autograph books, which I'm rather pleased about, or I too would be tempted to make a few, lol!
