2 new books...



These two books have been added to my Etsy shop (link to the right). The purple and yellow book is a journal with 112 pages of Arches Text Wove paper and the pink and purple one is a brag book/photo album with 28 pages of Fabriano Artistico 90lb. smooth watercolor paper. The photo album has 1" spacers built into the spine to allow for the addition of photos.

I'm currently designing a different option for attaching the long ribbons to my books and albums. Will post a photo when it's complete!

Hi Kristin-Love the paste paper. I have printed off your link on how to make...now to find the time!

Would you mind sharing how you insert the spacers into your brag book? I am considering making a similar book as a wedding shower gift, but am unsure how to add the spacers. Thank you in advance.
(i'm the same person who had asked you about the sewing on one of your previous posts). I did a practice book, but didn't quite have the coptic technique down...will try again soon.

Hi Traci! I'd be happy to explain the spacers (very simple)! I will write it up and/or draw illustrations and post soon. I'm off now to do a storytelling/puppetry program in my daughter's classroom! Will work on this ASAP! Thanks for your kind words! Kristin
