Julianne Booklet

I made this for my soon to be 7 year old niece.  It's a little more than a card and a little less than a book. The pictures I used were taken at Thanksgiving.

This is the cover.  Lots of bling and glitter here!  The crown was cut from page 56 of the Birthday Bash cartridge. The letter J is also from Birthday Bash on page 47.  I used a variety of papers.  The striped base is from a DCWV stack that I got a long time ago.  I believe it was called The Glitter Stack.  The light pink layer is Core'dination and the dark pink layer is from DCWV Black Currant Stack. Instead of adding all of the layers to the crown cut, I added jewels to the top and a strip of jewels along the bottom.

I used papers from the DCWV Sweet Stack for most of  the inside pages.  The cutie patootie turtle is from page 47 of the Birthday Bash cartridge. "It's your birthday" is from the card feature on page 22.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the lattice on the next page.  I cut the little cupcakes from the paper and stuck them on with Stampin' Up dimensionals.

The cute little bird is from the Birthday Bash cartridge on page 23.  Popped up and then added some stickle initials on the balloon. For the next page I just used  the pretty cake design embossed on the paper.

The adorable rainbow was cut from the Create A Critter cartridge on page 52. Then I ran it through my Xyron and sprinkled it with Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The little flowers are from the same cartridge on page 44.  It turned out really nice.  Wish you could see it in person. Added a little jeweled butterfly from Michael's dollar bin.  The next page I cut the "sweet" from the Quarter Note cartridge and added a jeweled ice cream cone also from the dollar bin.

For the back cover, I used the same papers as the front cover.  The "happy Birthday" is from page 27 of the Create A Critter cartridge.  The "Julianne" and "2011" are cut from the alphabet on the Baby Steps cartridge.
Added another jeweled butterfly to finish.

I punched two holes through the pages with my Crop A Dile and tied everything together with a ribbon.

This little booklet was really fun to make.  I hope Julianne enjoys it.

Thanks for coming by my blog,

Cindy :)
