A Book for Emily

Happy Friday!!!
  Today I have for all of you a book that I made as part of my sister, Emily's, birthday last week.  I posted about the card I made her here last week, and this is one of the other little handmade things I had for her on her special day.

For this book, I used Love Letter paper again--see, SO versitile!  Vintagey, classic, elegant style.   I used the spiral notebook punch to fit the paper to the bound edge, and Tombow glue to hold it down.  I used the largest of the scallop circle punches, layered a 1 3/8ths circle of Newsprint, an Designer Tag Punch of the Love Letter Paper, and a Very Vanilla 1 1/4 circle stamped with the E from Lovely Letters.  Along the spine of the book I tied pieces of Basic Black satin ribbon.  I don't know what she plans to use the book for, but she loved it :)  On the back I just used another piece of the houndstooth pattern and stamped my "Hand Stamped by Amy Fink" stamp on a Very Vanilla Designer Tag punch.

Hope you all have a great weekend!  Wish us luck as we weed through our basement.  :)  Our local Savers store is going to love us after this weekend!!!  Whatever you do with yours, enjoy, and I'll see you all back here on Monday.

Happy Stampin!
