Tina's Note Book
I have been creating a lot of items lately! So much so that I have a back log of things to show you. In fact this piece was created last month for the Secret Leprechaun exchange at SCS. I made this as an altered item for Tackertwosome (Tina). Her favorite color is purple so I put this together as my first attempt at using my Bind It All. If you haven't seen this product in action, check out this video. Nope, I don't work for the company but I do like this tool a great deal. It is a sturdy tool that should last for a very long time.
As you can see, I did not add a lot of dimension to the front of this piece. I thought it was the perfect size for tucking down in a purse and too many things sticking out of the front would be a problem in a purse. Okay, I know I got a little happy with the bling. I don't know what came over me! I just kept adding more! Crystal Effects was used on the initial and to adhere the bling to the cover. The metal corners I picked up while in Ireland a few years ago and the embossed metal behind the initial came from our home renovation. Nothing like recycling trash now is there? I found this long strip of aluminum on the ground one day last fall. The contractor made some new flashing and this was the part that he cut away. I thought is was pliable enough that it might work in my die cut machine. You got it, that's a cuttle bug embossing folder that I used.
