Emily's Sealife Book


Today's entry is a special book I made for my niece Emily.
She just had a birthday and I always try to make her something special.
I sent her a gift card for her birthday and told her to let me know what she wanted as her special treat.
(Her birthday is April 15th so you all know I was extra busy!!)
Her request was a Sea life book with Dolphins
So Last week I was at Terry's house - Creative Cuts and More
And she had a book very similar to this with a kit I could buy.
Sorry to anyone who also falls in love it was the last one.
It was great since I just joined her design team...
and I need to learn how to work on this style of books.
It is a hybrid chipboard and acrylic album. I fell in love with the pages and thought it fit the needs Emily described. Plus I would learn a new technique.
Bear with me on the pictures I am trying to show you the album the best way I can. I took pictures of the pages as is and then I added paper to show you the individual pages. Not the prettiest way but effective.

I put a link to Terrys Store after all the pictures so in case you are interested in the diecuts you can go there and take a look around. I will be going there often and can get any orders you guys need. :)
So you can save on shipping!!!! She also has tape and gems so let me know if you need anything at her great prices. I can hook you all up. 

Cover of the book This was the hardest part of the whole album for me.
Creative Cuts and More - Starfish, Seahorse, Crab, Fish, and Seashell dies 
pg 1
Creative Cuts and More - Wave, Seashell and Pocket dies  
pg 2 ( Acrylic)
Creative Cuts and More - Wave, Starfish, Seahorse, and Tab dies  
On the acrylic you can see the depth of the pages through the layers.
I love the affect. The next picture I put a piece of white paper so you could see just the 2nd page of the book.
pg2 -2 (- just the acrylic page without the layers behind)
Creative Cuts and More - Wave, Starfish, Seahorse, and Tab dies  
Pg3-1 (Acrylic)
Creative Cuts and More - Wave, Fish, Starfish, Seahorse, and Tab dies  
Pg3-2 (Acrylic with paper)
Creative Cuts and More -Wave, Fish, Starfish, Seahorse, and Tab dies 
pg4-a - mini tag
Creative Cuts and More -Tag, Pocket,, Fish, and Wave dies

Close up of mini tag front
Creative Cuts and More - Pocket and Tag dies

Close up of the back of the mini tag
Creative Cuts and More - Pocket and  Tag dies 
Pg 4 (standard page)
Creative Cuts and More - Wave and Fish dies
Having these standard pages gives the area a start and a stop which makes this a fun book and something which to me took the "scary" out of acrylic books. I didn't have to plot out an entire book from start to finish. I had little sections. so now we have showcased the 1st part lets move on to the next one....
