The Reminder book

A craftypost from me after a long time . This is already up on Swap Central so I thought I might as well post it here. This reminder book was super awesome to make...and super fun....I took everything I love about stamping and colors and put that down in this book.

7 colors of the rainbow, stamping, embossing and distressing! All that I love about stamping is what makes the theme of this book!

I love how this cover turned out. I initially was not sure how to do these rays, but found a quick way to do it. and it turned fab. All the colors on the cover are the same colors that I used on the inside of the book. The ribbons are also 7 in color.....and the tags included in the pockets are also the same color as the page.....Talk about color co-ordinating! The Alpha's are stickers from PrintaStick.

Just a quick run down on all the stamps and inks used. All CS is Fabriano. The background Versamark stamp is hero arts Large stripe flower, and the lower half is Hero arts background Flower Dot Pattern Clear embossed and Distressed with Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord . The Alphabet is a local stamp I purchased, which is again white embossed on a frame cut out from a hero arts Stripes and Frame Set (Romina, I finally used the stamp you sent!! :D) 

Check out the cute little birdie U-pin I snagged locally!! got tons of shapes of those pins...turtle, croc, sheep, cow, rabbit etc!! :D

The Feb page has hearts watermarked in the background, but hard to see because of the color. The flourish stamp is embossed in white, Distressed with Barn Door and Fired Brick

The March page has little bunnies (easter bunnies if you will) from Lawn Fawn, and the Hero arts clear embossed. Distress inks used are Stormy sky and Chipped sapphire.

The April silver heat embossed. The background has little dragon flies - an old hobby ideas stamp)
Distress inks used - Spun sugar and Worn Lipstick

The May has Damask background stamp from PTI, and heat embossed lower panel. I could not match the color of distress inks, so just heat embossed on the same color card-stock. Though it looks black, its green ..

The June side has PTI sunflowers stamp in the background and clear embossed Flourish stamp in the lower panel on the same green CS.

July tag is embossed in Gold, Unity butterflies in the background and White heat embossed lower panel. 

Aug is silver embossed, and PTI Butterfly Dreams in the background. The lower panel is distress with Pumice Stone distress ink.

Sep tag is Gold embossed, Mehendi Medallion in the background (stare closely and slowly). Lower panel distressed with Wild honey and Spice marmalade and tinge of Rusty hinge.

My favorite month and color... Oct Tag is silver embossed, and PTI Friends till the end in the background.
Lower panel distressed with Tumbled Glass.

Nov tag gold embossed, and Autum Leaves stamp in the background. Lower panel distressed with Tea Dye, Antique linen and Vintage photo. ( I love this shade..its warm and cozy on a winter day..reminds me of cinnamon..)
The last page .. cloud stamp from Imaginisce .. lower panel inked with Broken China.

This is the tags that I have included in the pockets.

Hope you liked it and my partner did too!! It was a lot of work, even though it doesn't look like it wasn't!

If you have any questions about any product or technique...ask me and I shall be happy to clarify things for you.

Till then!!
