I came up with a crazy idea at a crop several years ago. I could make cover pages. I told you it was crazy. They have worked well for me and it gives me an excuse to get all fancy with my Gypsy. I also get to use fun embellishments and different techniques.
I'm going to share five different cover pages with you. I travel a great deal and am always looking for some place new to go. I really enjoy historic sites and natural sites like state parks. I also have a thing for architecture.
|Outer Banks, North Carolina|
This paper is another one I didn't really want to cut and it's matted on cardstock. The die cut words are also done on my Gypsy and Cricut. There's a sticky note that I need to cut out a Magnolia and pop it on here. See I use sticky notes for everything!
|Wilmington, North Carolina|
One thing you can't see is a 12x12 clear transparency on top of the cover page. The sticky note says I need to add Glossy Accents mixed with blue ink to make bubbles.
|Charleston, South Carolina|
This cover page has a lot of bright yellow which I used because Charleston is a sunny, hot place. I used an Old English style font on my Gypsy and Cricut to reflect the age of the city.
So if you have an odd, empty page, cover pages provide an excellent way of filling the empty space. They're also a fabulous way of using papers you don't want to cut up and showcase.
Until the next time*
Be adventurous. Try a new technique!
