First EVER UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Blog Hop - Brag Book



Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop.
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Beth's project. Wasn't it great technique??


If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.


For my project I of course had to use my current favorite stamp set Fabulous Florets. (I hope I have not made you sick and tired of it already.)








This is a fun little brag book to tote around or even a mini scrapbook out of. The pages are made out of Stampin' Up!'s fabulous clear envelopes. You can just slip a picture into the pocket of the envelope or you can take it a step further and decorate the pages like you would a scrapbook. I love making these books and giving them to someone special makes them even more fun. I made this one for my 3rd child who is always amazed at her baby pictures. She is 4 now and will just love to get this book. Here is a sneak peak at one of the inside pages.
