CR84FN70 Guest Designer

Hello and welcome!
 
I'm back with my second and last Guest Designer project for January. It has been fun to join Mona Pendleton and her talented CR84FN design team this month. If you've never played along with this challenge I encourage you to as they welcome all skill levels and styles.




I made a mini book (see my previous post) that inspired me to create this mini as a gift. It's full of stamped quotes that I personally like and hope the recipient will too. The main challenge colors are  aqua, tan, and light yellow with neutrals being the exception. I stayed true to the challenge requirements on the front cover and for several of the pages but did incorporate a few dp's from the MME Follow Your Heart-Be Amazing collection that featured additional colors.

All of the quotes are Verve stamps with the exception of two. The Albert Einstein quote is from the Words of Wisdom set by Waltzingmouse Stamps and the Jean De La Bruyere quote is part of the Faith & Hope set by Taylored Expressions. I will include the stamps I used by Verve in my supply list at the end of this post. A Cinch binding machine was used to punch through the chipboard and to bind the book together.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you will drop by the CR84FN Color Challenge and leave some love for the talented designers who work hard to inspire all of us.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx


Stamps by Verve: Plain Janes-Grace, Light Tomorrow & Hope Perches; Sets-Text Objects, Autumn Splendor, One Person and Blue Skies

You've done a great job with this little mini book - it's a little piece of art! There are so many words of wisdom in there, too. I especially like the pages with the bird, the feather and the bicycle - they're so nicely combined with matching elements and sentiments.
