PolkaDoodles Paper/Stamp Kit Project - Altered Book

Did you check out the new kit from PolkaDoodles? Fab isn't it? This is one of the projects that is in the step by step project booklet. Despite my best efforts to use everything in the kit I failed miserably! I still have loads left and am currently working on a couple more projects using the kit. The only extra bits needed to make this project are the book, matchboxes, string pearls, die cut branches, paint, and inks.

Apologies in advance for the photo heavy post but there's so much detail that I struggled to fit it into just a couple of photos.

This is the front cover, you get all of the embellishments with the exception of the pearl string and branch die cut.  Can you see those sweet little mdf birds? They are part of the kit and are a perfect size for most projects.

One of the sentiment stamps. Look how perfectly they stamp onto acetate.

Lots of lovely ribbon and lace from the kit.

Can you see all the gorgeous texture?

Little drawers for your secret stash!

A little bit of shaker fun!

Bright and beautiful!

 I think this is my favourite page. There's a little niche and lots of stamping!

 I hope you like my project. I had fun creating it.

Thanks for stopping by today.
