It's Time for Stamp New England!!!

Yippeeeeee!!! It's finally here...no more sleeps!!! It's time for Stamp New England!!! Can you tell I'm SUPER excited!!! So today I thought I'd share with you the make & take I'll be leading tonight. If you're coming to Stamp NE and want it to be a surprise, then you'd better look away now. LOL!

My project is a sketch book using stamps and embellishments from Stamping Bella. Thanks again Em for donating the supplies! MWAH!!!

I started with a set of 5x7.5 inch Zutter Bind It All covers and adhered some fun Twitterpated papers. Then I punched holes in the covers and inside pages with my Bind It All and added the wire spine. I wrapped the covers with some white twill tape to hide the seams. 

I inked up Stampah Huggabugg with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped it onto white, then coloured the sweet little image with copics. I added Bella Liquid Watercolour Glitter to the wings for a pretty shimmer. The finishing touch is two 5mm Olive Bella Bonbons on the antennas. 

The sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinder Tag Trio and attached to the bow with hemp and a button. Two 7mm Ruby Red Bella Bonbons finish off the details on the cover. The inside pages are blank, ready to fill with great sketches and other inspiration. 

Don't forget, today is also Bellarific Friday, so pop over to Bloggabella to see all the submissions. I'll be sharing my Bellarific card here tomorrow. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
