Final 2011 VC Rocks! Blog Hop! Punches Galore

Hi everyone, and welcome to the final BlogHop for the 2011 VC Rocks! season. This has been another fantastic VC Rocks! year and it will be sad to see it go away, but it will be back next spring for more fun and Stampin' Up! style celebration. Keep an eye here,
VC Rocks Blog Home for next years dates and when you can join us for the fun, friendship and games. This is also the beginning of our blog hop. If you want to start from the beginning, or get lost along the way, that is where you may find yourself, lol. Oh, and check out the fabulous art on our home blog, too.

Now, off we go. You should have arrived here from Elaine Wright's blog, I Reckon I'll Stamp, I know she had something fabulous to share with you. Rockers are awesome stampers!!!

Here is my project for today:

My friend Melissa needed a wedding gift and wanted
a small scrapbook album, so I said I would make it.
I made labels for her pictures with the Modern Label,
Word Window, and Oval Punches.

This is the tin opened. The label in the lid is a
Mahatma Ghandi quote "Where there is love,
There is life.

Colors used are Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, and
Chocolate Chip. Front and back covers were
stamped with Versamark and embossed with
Clear Embossing Powder using the Elements of
Style Flourish. Pearls were added to centers of
flowers. The Monogram is from the Lovely
Letters Stamp Set.

I added a poem to the inside cover and stamped
each page with the flourish from Elements of Style.

Finished off by binding the book and adding some
Baja Breeze Seam Binding to the coils.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Thank you so much for hopping with us
this weekend.

Your next stop will be Kris Sobolik at Maddiebug Designs , She is sure to have something gorgeous to share with you today. Have a great day! See ya!

  12. Carolyn, I just love this - I too have some tins so this would be a great way to use them up!

Thanx for the great ideas and for sharing!!! Hugs, Sassy
