Sketchy Book

This little book was made using today's sketch challenge 199 on Splitcoaststampers. I love the sketch but was int he mood to make a little book. I had gotten these little baggies with the intentions of making something with them and just hadn't gotten around to it...so today was the day!

The front cover uses the sketch. I love these papers eventhough they are retired! and so is the alpha set that I used for the title and stars. It's very simple really! The book measures 4x3 and the layers are all very small, so this really didn't take many supplies at all! I stamped the snowflakes using old olive classic ink on shimmery white cardstock and then stamped the stars with black stazon ink along with the title.

For the main bags I actually cut the little flap off and made a notch...using scissors of all things! I then cut a piece of cardstock to fit the inside and stamped a snowflake on each bag using white stazon ink...I think it adds a perfect little touch! Each little page actually fits a wallte photo perfectly! Too Cute!

And this is the pic of the front page...just the sentiment from the Snow Swirled set and a bunch of the snowflakes! a great place to write a little note to the recipient or leave as is!
