Love Book

I have spent the last 2 days working on this Love Book.. loving how it turned out, the inspiration for it came from a book called Handmade Decorative Books by Sue Roddis.

I used My Minds Eye Lost and Found Paper Collection

Lots of Vintage Photo Distress Ink

I made this handmade charm tonight just to finish it off and it also acts as the closure..

3 Rings to bind the book and inside there is heavyweight cold pressed water colour paper

The large decorative heart and crown stamps are from the Papermania Confetti Collection

I’ll be back later in the week with a peek inside the Love Book.. I need to work some more on the content ๐Ÿ˜‰
