A Little Book Cover

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Tuesday and this means it's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations.

I am sharing a cover for a little book I'm making ...

What can I say, I have taken a little break from CAS cards and started making a little mixed media book which I will fill with uplifting quotes.

I basically made the book in the dimensions to fit the CUTplorations Cover Plate Dies and the large one from the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies which I am planning to use for the inside pages. I shall share some of them over the next few weeks.

I used the Dragonfly Cover Plate Die for my front cover and layered it on a piece of Brusho coloured card. I is simply decorated with a bit of stamping and some die-cut flowers and shapes.

The layout of my front cover could easily be adapted to make a card.

Just giving you a little heads up, some of the STAMPLorations products I used in my project are on offer in their shop this month:
The Artsy Border Maker is one of the selected stamps on offer at 25% off with code TAKE25.
The Dragonfly Cover Plate Die, the Trendy Spring Blooms Dies and the Clustered Hearts Die like all their CUTplorations dies are on offer at 40% off using code DIES40.
You can check out all their current promotions here.

Again, I am keeping it short and sweet today. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to check out the fabulous projects my teamies made.

That's it from me for now. Have a lovely day!
