I showed you the cover last week, so here's the rest of the inside pages and spine. I used an accordian book spine option instead of wire or rings, covering the outside with coreugated chipboard.
Here's the front view again- I added a door lock and key to the top - but other wise - all the rest is the same, it's just not joined together.
Here's a view of the side showing the spine- I used coreugated chipboard to cover the outside of the accoridian pleated spine.
And here's the inside! I have 3 tab sections- the first is Family, where I have 2 Maya Roads envelopes inserted to hold any photos I want to include.
Inside one of the Maya Roads- Photo envelopes
The Second tab - is 'Blessings'
This has library pockets where I've put strips that I numbered to count my blessings or a reminder of the things I'm most Thankful for!
The last and 3rd tab is "Recipe's". Everyone has their favorites or traditional holiday recipes-For this tab I I decorated it with a cup and saucer chipboard element I found and filled with leaves diecut and distressed, an acorn and other elements!
I created some envelopes from long 4 x9 envelopes that I could easily tuck inside recipe cards I want to be sure to use again and again. I embellished the envelopes with stamped and paper-pieced elements using the Fruit Medley set I used the mini jar and card labels set to stamp images on the facing page.
And that's pretty much all of it- I'm going to post some tutorials on how I converted my recipe pages from the original top-loading envelopes I had, and some other details over on my blog here. So check it out.
Thanks - and be sure to check in next week, where we are focused on sharing our latest New Releases on the New Release blog hop here - Dec 10-12!
