My LEAP into FAITH Book.
Scrap Our Stash asked me to be Guest Designer for February. Our word this month (as it’s leap year) is to create something around the word LEAP. I had saved a little advertising booklet, (I save them all as they make the basis for great mini books.)
This one was from a Garden Centre and was a perfect A5 size. I measured, cut and covered a sheet of cardboard to wrap around the booklet, making sure I made it ¼ “ bigger all round. I used the Basic Grey Indian Summer papers as I love their rich colours and detailed patterns. I used the die-cut stickers from the pack to arrange a small scene on white gloss paper ( a cut off from printing a photo) I fussy cut around the edge of the scene then backed it with black paper and cut around that too. I cut a heart from some corrugated card and coloured it with Dylusions spray ink in worn leather. I arranged the die-cut words LEAP and FAITH onto some black gloss card, cut them and stuck on the front page together with the other words. All the letters were from the diecut sticker sheet with the pack. I used a piece of handmade embroidered tissue to decorate the fold. A piece of wide ribbon was sandwiched between the front cover pages. The inside pages of the book were then covered with a selection of papers which echoed the colours in the front paper. The photo shows myself and others after our Confirmation Ceremony, I'm on the far right.
I hope you like it and gain some inspiration for your own project.
