Color Combo Book




I saw an awesome Color Combo book over at Melanie's blog, and thought it was such a great idea! I don't own a Bind it All machine, so I asked her to make one for me to decorate for myself.

The designer papers used are Cutie Pie, and Old Olive Prints. I lined the inside covers with textured Bashful Blue paper. Tombo Mono Multi glue was used to adhere the papers to the chipboard. The "c" is from On Board Simon Lower, and the rest of the words were printed on Whisper White on my computer (I used the Write Me a Memory II CD). The ribbon is Bashful Blue, and Spring Moss (retired). I stamped the little accent flowers using my Three for You punch kit. The Basic Black mat was trimmed using my Fiskars Mini-Scallop Paper Edgers.

Thanks for looking, and enjoy your Sunday!!
