Here is one of my latest book folding creations. I took the class at a local bookstore and what a great result. The flowers were made from recycled flyers and the book was an old encyclopedia. I added some green leaves cut using various leaf framelits and punches.

I admit it I have gone bananas for the Tutti-Frutti DSP #145606, the Apron of Love #145835 stamp set and the Apron Builder Framelits #145661 in the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog. Unfortunately the Tutti- Frutti DSP is a last chance item and will not be carried over in the 2018-2019 Stampin Up Annual Catalog. The Apron stamp set and the Framelits will be carried over but will not be a bundle and save item. For the mini composition book I just covered it with 2 sheets of coordinating DSP and added the sentiment from the Crafting Forever #143958 stamp set onto a punched piece. For the freestanding apron, I cut 2 aprons using the Apron Builder Framelit and constructed a box between the aprons so I could add a cellophane bag of banana chips.
Congratulations to the class of 2018 at The Ohio State University which just so happens to include my son! He graduates today with a BS in Materials Science & Engineering degree. He worked hard and graduated in 4 years which is quite a feat for an engineering student especially at OSU. To commemorate his degree I the OH-IO book fold book from an old text book. How firm thy friendship……. OHIO!
I have found a new love! The love of book folding. Today’s post is one of my favorite pieces yet. It started out as an old encyclopedia and then it turned into a vase of beautiful flowers. It is a perfect addition for a mantle or shelf and can be completed in just a few short hours. The flowers were hand made using recycled color flyers and adhered with a glue gun, I added the leaves cut from the flyer with the Leaflets Framelit.
Merry Christmas. I made this beautiful Sampler for my friends birthday using a lot of the products in the Stampin Up holiday catalog. Be sure to check out the Stampin Up Year End Sales Event to see the items that will no longer be available after Jan 2.
Posting a second post today to showoff what a lucky girl I am. My sister Blair loves all things google eyes and has a vast collection in all shapes, sizes and colors! Well she would not dream of parting with her collection but when she saw the google eyes at Dollar Tree she bought 6 bags and a wreath to make me this adorable wreath simply by using a hot glue gun to hold the eyes on. It is so cute!
In anticipation of my upcoming beach vacation, I made a simple flip flop wreath using 9 pair of colorful flip flops from the Dollar Tree. It is the perfect decor for our deck and pool area.
