Wonderful Wednesday!

Hello everyone, hope your week is going great so far.  I've been busy in the craft room.  I have several secret swaps I'm in.  Most of them revolve around sewing and the one I'm working on right now is for a pin case swap.  Now, I know what your thinking...a pin case is something small and holds a few pins, right?  Well, I'm taking a creative liberties with my pin case and making a pin album of sorts.  I've had this very cool chipboard book laying around for a while.  Really since the first Twilight movie came out.  I thought I would make a book for each movie, but that kind of fizzelout out once 50 shades came about;)  So, my re purpose of this little jem of a book is this....

I stamped the front with every single stamp from PTI Button Boutique along with the dressform stamp in classic kraft ink for this weeks Papertrey Ink MIM challenge. 

I'm a little bummed that the fabric looks discolored on my first page so may have to start the inside over.  It kind of looks vintage tea died, but I'm not sure how that happened :(  It looks worse in the photo then irl, any idea how to fix that?

  1. hmmmmm....I have no idea about how you would go about getting rid of the vintage look on the fabric but I have to say it looks great to me! I love how you stamped all over the front cover! I can't wait to see more photos!
