I am super excited, this is the first time, I am taking part in MFT guest Designer.
I made this handbag book for MFT Guest Designer contest. When I first heard about the title, Hit the Books, the first thought was Pearls of Wisdom, My dad always says Books give you Wisdom. So I went with that theme. Luckily my son and my daughter have my love of reading.
Now knowing that is what I wanted to do, I went to my local store for what book I could make. I found this gorgeous handbag book by Maya Road. I could not resist it. I not only used sayings from Pearls of Wisdom, but I looked at all my sets and saw which one are nuggets of wisdom, and used them accordingly. Originally I wanted to make 14 pages, but this book could hold only 8 because of all the dimensions I added. I truly enjoyed making it, I concentrated on sayings and what I love about MFT--yes, their DIE-NAMICS.
I have used Finishing Flourishes Stamp throughout the pages, I can't seem to put that one down. All papers used are Miss Carolina- Howdy Doody and Dolled up, unless stated otherwise. All sentiments were stamped with Momento Black Ink and embossed. Most of the colored papers used are PTI cardstock.
