Artbooking Pic Folios Make Wonderful Gifts

I am so excited to share this little Artbooking project with you today. Not only was it a challenge to decorate but it was easy and fun to make. You see I am having a little party and wanted each of my guests to have a little gift to take home. Well I decided to print the photos from their last visit and give them to each one of them. But, I didn't want to just hand it to them so I used the little folder in the Artbooking cartridge on page 43.

See what a nice simple cut this was. Well I then checked my scrap room for multiple sheets of the same color and all I had was brown so I used that. So the dilemma was how to make it look pretty! So I played around with my stamps and had fun.

See how easy that was I just set my size to 7 inches and cut all of my pic folios out. Then I cut their names out using Cursive 101. Stamps Of Life to the rescue with just the perfect set of stamps called YouAre2Square. I also used their pigment white ink and that was a first to use that.

I really had fun experimenting while putting this little project together. The cut was simple but decorating took a little playing around. This was my first time using the white pigment ink and I finally caught on toward the end.  My Pic folios had that shabby sheik look to them and I like how they turned out.

As you can see they finally came together and I really like them and know the ladies will too.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed my little project and that you have learned along with me. The important thing to me is to make my guest feel special and I think these little gifts will do the trick, don't you.
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me to continue sharing with you! Have a blessed day.
