I am in love with this kind of book. These books are called hybrid books. Which means... you buy the designed papers from an artist online and print them out on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock and make your scrapbooks or art journals. Once you buy them you get to keep them forever. You can make cards out of them or smaller scrapbooks for a friend...whatever you want to do. The designer of this is Marion Smith...she is super talented!! I LOVE her stuff!! She comes out with a new book every month...you buy how ever many pages you want. Her idea is to make a journal monthly...while taking a picture every day and place it your journal. I am just buying the books I like and doing my own thing. I have gotten away from my scrap booking for a while and plan to get back into it with these hybrid journals. You can check out her site here. She also does You tube video's on how to bind her books and put the pages together. Just search her name on you tube..and she will come up.
Here is my spine all nice and pretty :)
The front of this journal says February on it...so I needed to cover that up. My Mom makes me the most wonderful doilies... I use them in my art when ever I can. Then some flowers and bling :):)
Now I will show you some pages on the inside...this book is filled with tags to pull out, and envelopes to fill...just yummy!!
I loved this book because of all the butterflies in it :):)
All these pages were printed onto card stock. Marion has wonderful you tube video's that show you how to put the pages together. Just GREAT!!! She does an awesome job!!
My first page with my Teddy Bear!! ( what is my issue with the bears?!? :) Those who follow my blog know I call my kids Baby Bears, myself Momma Bear...and I guess my husband Teddy Bear :):) Oh well :):)
