Yertle and Nick's Book


Colors : Clover Meadow, Key Lime, Buttercup, Dutch Blue

Papers : Carnival B&T (retired), CTMH CS

Stamps : Yertle (stamping bella), Sans Alpha

Accents : Green Staples

Made this for the SCS sketch challenge 162. I've been wanting to play with my Yertle ^_~ He's such a cutie! I also got my stapler out since I haven't used it in forevah! And I think I've been having something for green lately.


Nick's Book :


Papers : Expedition, Textured CS (CTMH)

Stamps : In the Wild, Sans Alpha

Accents : Waxy Flax, Buttons, Dimensional Elements Alpha


I made this from a regular sized file folder. I was trying to think of something to do with them since I have this stack that's just taking up space lol. I think this is what I'm going to make for family for Christmas this year. One for each of the kids and a family brag book for the parents and Nana & Poppa. Yes, I'm starting now. If I don't I'll never be done in time lol. The year before last I made my nieces and nephews kid sized quilts. I started that one in Jan and didn't finish until October! I had wanted to finish this today but it looks like I'm am going to have to order prints because both printers are being poopers :P On another note I glued all the paper to the book before thinking so I didn't get to embellish the front like I wanted. I'll just have to remember to make the cover first so I can cover up the back of the embellies with the paper with the rest of them. This one is the first so I've just been trying to figure it out as I go lol.
