The Book Inside

Hi There

I would like to show you the book which was inside the box from yesterday!
This is both the front and back pages of the book. Although it doesn't show very well, her name (Carol) is on the front of the book. The sentiment says Friends are the Essence of Life, the epoxy sticker was matted onto cram cardstock, cut with an oval nestie.
This is pages two & three. The edge on page two was cut with a GoKreate Die (frilly squares 2). The pocket on page three was edged with a ribbon effect sticker. The tags have sayings on them such as 'Thanks for being a great friend' and 'We will always be friends'.
This picture shows the flap lifted on page two, to show the hidden photo mats.
Pages four and five. These were decorated using 2" squares from the patterned paper, I added rub ons stickers and gems in different corners.
Inside page four, another sentiment and  a place for a photo, with another rub on in the top corner.
Inside page five, another sentiment and another photo mat. Yep another rub on in the top corner :)
Pages six and seven. Page six has a pocket on with two tags in, to be journalled onto or photos stuck on them. The pocket has a border made up from two stripes of the co-ordinated papers and a die cut flower at one edge. Page seven also has a pocket, this time the pocket was cut on an angle and edged with a Martha Stewart Border punch. Some more rub ons and an epoxy sticker finish this page off.

Again all the goodies to make this were bought from The Stamp Pad in Saddleworth.

Happy Crafting
