I poured my heart and soul into this one and she's finally ready to share. 

If you would like to see a video, click here

She is 8 3/4" x 6" with a 2" spine.  She has 3 signatures sewn into the cover using a 3-hole pamphlet stitch.  The cover is reinforced with an appropriately sized strip of a Tyvek envelope.

There are 90+ full-sized pages, plus 30+ smaller pages, plus a 16-page booklet inside.  She has lots of tags, journal cards, envelopes, bags, tuck spots, and pockets!  Oh, did I mention that she is CHUNKY? (...and heavy!! She weighs in at around 1.5 lbs!!)

Papers used in her creation:  Digital photo matte papers, graph, ledger, lined, SOME coffee and tea-dyed copy paper pages, parchment, vellum, 110# and 65# cardstock, and copy paper sprayed with Lindy's and Glimmer Mist.

You'll find lots of lace, fibers, trim and ribbon.  I hand-dyed the lace on the lower portion of the cover and the seam binding closure.

I did quite a bit of machine stitching on pages, tags, and cards and I left the thread hanging.  :)

This was a Design Team project for Laura at ThePaperedSoul on Etsy.  Please go check out her shop and all the wonderful items she has available!  Click on the --> LINK  

I used digital kits from the following:

Marion Smith (shop closed, last I looked)  :(

I used papers from Graphic 45's "Once Upon a Springtime."

I used My Mind's Eye "Hello, Gorgeous Girl!" journal cards. 

She's available for sale in the U.S. only.
