Top Note Bigz Book

Check out my latest craftin' project! After finding this awesomely creative idea from the brilliant Lisa Somerville (a fellow demo), I ran to my craft space and created this little book using the Exclusive Stampin' Up! Big Shot Top Note Bigz Die (which happens to be available for you to purchase starting tomorrow, Sept 1).

The front and back covers are cut out from chipboard coasters and covered with Bella Rose Designer Series Paper and Chocolate Chip cardstock. The stamp set I used is Dreams du Jour. I used whisper white cardstock for the inner pages, but you could use copy paper for a journal or additional pieces of chipboard for a more sturdy album. My crop-a-dile came in handy to punch through the chipboard and all the layers of the inner pages for the binding holes.

In order to make some pink satin ribbon, I rubbed white ribbon over the Pink Pirouette ink pad. Makes for inky fingers, but looks oh so good! Just be sure to clean your fingers before going on to the next step.

By the way, who says you have to get dressed before noon on a lazy weekend morning???

Oh, hey, don't forget to leave a comment sometime this week to be entered in my drawing for blog candy!

Brenda, this is adorable! Don't you just LOVE this die? How did we create without it. Can't wait to meet you IRL at the SA regional.
