Pink Icing memory book

Good evening everyone I hope you had a lovely Saturday afternoon. I have a different type of post today. I have recently got into memory books and when the challenge at Diva's by design came up with anything but a card, I thought this would be the ideal opportunity for me to share one with you. The book is made from 6 DL envelopes and I found the tutorial for this on you tube some months ago I think the video was by Following the Paper trail.

The papers are by DCWV the Sweets stack. I glued this beautiful paper to the chipboard covers with ultra tacky glue.

I used matching chipboard pieces on my front cover and tied the spine with some satin ribbon.

All of the pages have been made using DL envelopes with the ends cut off. I scored the envelope about two thirds of the way down and this created a short pocket and a long pocket. The envelopes where then covered in designer paper and at one end i created a flap which you will see in the photo's as you go down. I then glued all of the covered envelopes together at the fold to create my book.

I embellished my pages with lace ribbon an chipboard pieces and then inserted tags for journalling.

I hope you like it. I really enjoyed making this project. All I need to do now is find the time to add some photo's!!!!!!
