The Book Day 2

Ok, so yesterday I showed everyone the covers of the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante book that I made. Today I'd like to show you guys what the inside pages look like.

Here is the first page. Don't you just LOVE this corset paper? The theme for this page is "Be Glamorous". The frame was cut on my Cricut, put through the Cuttlebug and then a piece of plastic was glued to the frame to protect a picture. I surrounded three sides of the frame's inside opening with pop up adhesive squares leaving the top side open so that a picture can be slid inside.

I also cut a "V" cut in the inside of the envelope album cover so that one of the Steampunk Debutante tags could be placed inside. It's just the perfect spot for more pictures or journaling. But then again, there's a lot of THAT in this book.

Page two's theme is "Be Timely". I gotta say that this particular background sheet is one of my very favorite sheets of the entire line. Old time clocks and gears are the epitome of the Steampunk popularity... well, that and fashion! :)

This page features a simple flip page for... of course... more pictures or journaling. The images I used to embellish this page were all from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante line. Everything coordinates perfectly!

Page three's theme is "Be Passionate". Romance is invoked with all the swirls and lace.

Of course, the side pocket holds tags for pictures and journaling. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

The lace ribbon is Graphic 45 as well as the chipboard buttons that I used to accent the black ribbon. For the ribbon, I fed the ends through the button holes twice (no easy task there... be sure to have a LARGE sewing needle handy to make it easier. I did it the hard way with rolling the ends and securing them with tape to attempt "needle-like" ends) until both ends came through the back of the button holes and then tied a double bow.
Tomorrow I will finish showing the final pages of the book and then follow up the next day with a couple of fun techniques that I learned while working on this super gorgeous project. BTW... I'm going to be doing a Christmas version for The Paper Vineyard... I can hardly wait!!!
