This is a Memory/Guest Book that I made for a friend. She wanted a guest book for her father-in-law's 90th birthday celebration. She chose the paper for the cover (Grandmas house from Paper Loft) and I went from there.
I cut the covers from lightweight chipboard (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") plus cream cardstock for the inside and the DP for the outside. I used spray adhesive to put them together. Then I rounded all the corners. I added Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink to the edges.
For the largest Spellbinders Curved Rectangles frame, I chose a pearlescent brown paper by Paper Cut that I cut and embossed over window screen with #5 and 6 die templates. The frame fits over cream cardstock cut with #6 Curved Rectangles, also embossed over window screen. I added Antique Linen Distress to "age" it a bit. I fastened it to the cover just slightly offset to the right. I wrapped a piece of brown ribbon around the cover and fastened the ends to the center.I wrapped a piece of thread around the ribbon near the adhesive and tied it to gather the ribbon a little. (It will be hidden by the title)
The back piece of the title was cut/embossed with Spellbinders S4-229 Labels Five #6 out of Antique Gold pearlescent paper. The color was a bit too bright so I rubbed StazOn Timber over the edges......makes it look more bronze than gold. "Rember When" was stamped and embossed with gold EP on cream cardstock. I rubbed Antique Linen over the edges blending it to the center. Then I centered and cut it out with S4-190 Labels Four #6. To create the pearlescent brown frame, I placed S4-190 Labels Four #6 and S4-138 Petite Ovals LG #3 on my magnetic mat. I cut the frame and then embossed it over 12-1007 Diamond and Star Impressabilities. I glued the frame around the title and fastened it to the gold Labels Five. I used Foam Squares to mount it on the cover over the ribbon. I tied a half bow and fastened it with a glue dot.
