Paper Craftin with Erica

Winchester Brag Book

I made this brag book for my sister for Christmas.  I made it without pictures so she could choose which ones were in there.  She cried when she saw it.  She said, "Wow, Erica, you made me something?"  It feels good to have your hard work appreciated.  I used a simple board book.  I then covered the thick chipboard with patterened paper from the Winchester collection.  Of course, I used my Bind-It-All to put the book together.

I used a simple "board book" and covered the thick chipboard with patterned paper from the Winchester collection (which also comes with the tags I used).  This is what I started with:

I used miscellaneous stamped images that I received from my girls on CafeMom during a stamped image swap.  **thank you**  I think I got the board book from my local scrapbook store… which, by the way, is going out of business.  I guess the small store couldn't keep up with the economy.  Boo hoo!  I live in a small town, so I have to take a 'drive' to get to a Michael's or Hobby Lobby.  Anyway, happy scrapping!

    Great book! So I’m looking at your pics and see a stamp I have, the film strip with the man on it. Then you say you got it from a CafeMom swap, which that is a stamp I used on a swap. I don’t know if I have ever put 2 and 2 together and knew you were from CafeMom! I’ve been following your blog for quite some time too. I just rec’d the catalog you sent and LOVE IT! Trying to figure out which stamps I can’t live without! Anywho, what is your CafeMom name?
