I am teaching an Album making class at Paper Source this Saturday and I'm pretty excited about it. I've been using Paper Source's fine paper and book cloth for about five years now and love it. I haven't really had a chance to use their text blocks and book cloth tape so I sat down this week and gave it a chance and man did that journal come together fast.
Sushi wanted to model the final product!
So if you are new to book binding or just want a fast way to make a cute book I say check it out. There is also a video of how to do it that I watched while putting this journal together.
After Christmas I went and visited my in laws in Idaho and my sister in law Miriam had made all the girls there really cute necklace pendants out of old scrabble tiles. Each pendant had a picture on it that was picked personally for them.
This is the one that was made for me and it has one of my art works inside. Well we all just loved ours so much that we decided that we should make some together. So Miriam showed me and her sisters Meredith and Maureen (isn't it cool how we all have M names) how to do it. For these we didn't use scrabble tiles but wooden oval shapes work just as good. This is my favorite of the ones I made. I have worn it almost everyday this week.
You can check out the rest of them on my sister in laws website Made By Marzapan!
