Happy Wednesday Friends! Can you believe it's the end of November already? This month (year) has just flown by. As you know by now the last Wednesday of the month brings along with it the Club Scrap Blog Hop! This month's kit - Lakes - is simply beautiful...even if you don't live at a lake you'll find lots of inspiration in these lovely watercolor colors.
I knew the instant I saw this kit that I wanted to do something that really let the colors and patterns shine. I tried to think of a project that I could use LOTS of paper so it would pack a big color punch. I finally decided upon a Star Book! If you've never seen one, it's a super fun way to let the paper become the "star" of the show ;)
At first glance the book looks like any other mini album.
But open it up and it's an explosion of color!
Here's what the book looks like from above....
And looking at it from an angle...
Just look at all those wonderful layers of paper.
And from another angle....
Sure to make quite an impression with everyone that sees it.
I'll be back on Friday with step by step instructions.
Canoe believe it?
