long time no see

seems like ages since i have been blogging been a bit up and down with my back etc not really been in the mood

anyway i have just finished my prototype occasions book so thought i would show you some pics

the book is meant as a gift and holds 6 double sided pages with pouches ( used k and co papers) to hold a card in each
there is a also a pouch on the inside of the front and back of the book and a little envelope for stamps

i will also make a large tag for each page to jot down who's birthday is when

as the book is a bit tight with the cards in i have added a pocket to the back of the cover of the book and slotted all the envelopes in there

when i make the next one i will make the cover slightly larger as i think it looks a bit odd as it is needs to overlap pages a little more
i have used the largest wires that i have with the B~I~A and they just cope with the 6 double pages plus cards thank goodness
i have made the card quite open cards used the CB quite a bit as you can make cheap cards look more expensive so can keep the price down
hope you like the design let me know what you think
