I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Abc Book 1 - Pic HEAVY

Here is an ABC book I made for my niece. It is such a picture heavy project that I split the posting up into two parts. I used many, many cartridges for this project. And it is a very simple pages, the cuts are arranged so I could label everything. I will list each cartridge used on the page under each picture, except for the letters used on each page were from the Mickey and Pooh Font Cartridges. I couldn't label every cartridge used! LOL

After I completed making all the pages, I then laminated them and used the Your Story to bind them into a book. I took pictures of the pages before they were laminated. The lamination wasn't the best on the pages, as there were so many layers and levels to the surface of the page, but since this was a book for a one year old, I wanted it to hold up to a kids love. For the cover, I adhered my cut with ModPodge and then went over the cuts again, sealing them on to the cover. That has held up quite well.

  1. I can't imagine how long this awesome book took you. But it was certainly worth the work. So are the laminating sheets by PC specifically for the Your Story? I've never seen them that large.

  2. Actually the book is an 8x8 your story cover and the laminating pages are 9 x 12 (I think) although I have 12 x 12 laminating sheets from PC for the Your story.

  3. This is just beautiful! I am sure it is very loved.

  4. This is beautiful Jan! I love the way it turned out! When are you giving it to Savannah?
