The next step was to design the front cover. I thought of an acrylic cover with metal pendants spelling the persons name. I laid them out in a flower pattern, distressed the edges and embossed with clear embossing powder. On the reverse side I made a large flower on the cricut to cove the back tape etc.. (2nd pic) I placed a large brad in the centre on front and back. on the small holes in the pendant i stuck tiny flowers. (not on the pic) this was an afterthought as it looked odd. The 3rd and 4th pictures show the first two pages, I just sort of 'winged it' really, thinking of little bits as I went along.

- suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.
