My First Chipboard Book..........and My First Post!

Okay, this is my first official post! Connie has graciously posted several pictures for me but I figured it was time to actually post something myself.
We had a wonderful time cropping together this past weekend! Connie got me started on my first chipboard book and I have to say, I am hooked!! I had SO much fun putting together this book for my sister. She is moving out of the country next month and I wanted to make something special for her so that she will take a part of me with her when she goes. I laid out the shape pages on Design Studio, and most of my cuts are from the Heritage cartridge and Winter Woodland cartridge. I would love to hear your comments on this project, however, remember this is my first one! Be gentle! :)

In all the pockets throughout the book are tags with different quotes about sisters. Some sweet, some funny, all fitting!

I love the way the tree turned out on this page! The cut is from Heritage. I glittered the branches with my Jelly Roll glitter pen and added tiny pearls to some of the branches. So pretty!

I also really like how the cameo turned out. It and the antique car are both also from the Heritage cartridge. The folder with the cameo on it opens.......

This is the inside of it. A picture and another quote.

I forgot to mention that all the paper I used is from K&Company.

All the word cuts are also from Heritage. I love this LOVE one with the curlicues on the ends!

This is the last page. Another picture folder that opens.........

And here it is open! Another picture and quote.

So that is it! My first chipboard album! Thank you, Connie, for all the wonderful ideas and for the flower cuts! I used almost all of them!

Happy Scrapping!
