Hi everyone, over at Live and Love Crafts Elin has set us all the challenge of following Wenche's book card tutorial. When I first saw we were doing this I initially looked forward to it, but then I started to panic a touch, I don't do things other than cards, so I then thought as I'm way out of my comfort zone I may as well do something that isn't me at all. I make cards as I colour images, and as this wasn't strictly a card I thought I'd try this....
A photo heavy post from me, there's just so many angles to try and get. When Grace, my daughter, was smaller I cut her fringe and kept it, I knew then I wanted to do something special with it and I thought this was the perfect opportunity. I'm going to be keeping this in my drawer and give her it when she's 18 this is why I've tried to keep the front a bit flat.
I've used some of the gorgeous new Pion papers and sewn all of the panels. I really enjoyed making this, I changed the measurements slightly though.
It's not often that I'll photo the back of a project, but I had to share this angle too.
Here is Grace's hair, she's only 5 at the moment, so I'm hoping in 13 years time she still likes my creations.
There is nothing on the inside cover yet, I'm going to be writing on there for Grace, and it's going to be just for us.
Here's a small collage as I could put even more pictures on, lol.
