I am delighted to be partaking in a wonderful online class over at Studio Calico called “Happy Little Moments”, taught by the wonderful and talented Maggie Holmes. I love LOVE that we’re using old Readers Digest books as the base of our albums. The official instructions were to paint the cover, and try I did. Three coats of three different colors went on that cover, but I wasn’t feeling it – so I decided to go with my first instinct. Paper! And boy was I ever happy to pull out my new Dear Lizzy products and put them to good use 🙂 Here’s how my cover ended up.
The idea is to record those little moments in life that give us so much joy. Maybe not Christmas, or birthday parties, but things likereading a bedtime story with your child, or the note your husband left you before work. The little stuff! A few of us were brainstorming on the message board about other things we could make this book for, too – like travel journals, engagement/wedding photo mini albums and art journals.
I’ll be back tomorrow with my next page 🙂
Thanks for looking!
