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. :)
