Spring Board Book

Last Wednesday night I took this class at the local Stamp store where I have been teaching all winter. It is a kit so can't take any credit for most of the creativity. I think it was designed for family photos but knowing that I can't create anything without words in it, I wrote a little story about returning birds. It reminds me of a children's board book and is fun to look at. I will continue to add pages this week so you can see it all. I hand lettered the story in Bookhand calligraphy and then copied it on to vellum and then made stickers out of the words on my Xyron. The only problem with that is that some of the ink is rubbing off. Bummer. Life is just living and learning, isn't it? Have a happy day. It's Spring!!!


  1. Very nice book. Can't wait to see what you do on the rest of the pages.
