What I've been working on

Hi, everyone,
I recently reconnected with a former classmate from school.  She has gone through a lot and I decided to make her a journal/mini book to encourage her.  There are 6 pages with pockets and the front of each page contains an encouraging scripture.  I used Laura Denison's Stack the Deck binding method (LOVE IT!) and her mini was the inspiration for this one.  There are two large tags/photo mats in each page--one is punched and one was embellished by using Tim Holtz Doily On the Edge die.  Everything was inked.  Each page is the same, just different paper, so I'm just posting one pic to show how the pages were constructed.  I used 6X9 inch envelopes as the base for the pages.

Hope you like it!

The cover

Here is one of the pages:
I also used my hand-dyed ribbons to wrap the spine and they are tied in bows.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
