Hi Friends and Welcome to The YOURSTORY Photo Blog Hop.
Thank you Sarah for asking me to be a part of yet another blog hop, using a wonderful product by ProvoCraft. I need to seriously buy stock in this company lol. I also want to personally thank ProvoCraft for the awesome Grand Prize...A Cuttlebug!
Im also very grateful to be doing a blog hop with some extremly talented ladies!!!!
I had my "non-crafty" friend buy a YourStory Photo so she could make pictures books of her son for her family. We both bought ours during the HSN launch. $1.00 a book just could not be beat! Speaking of HSN, YourStory Photo will be airing on HSN Dec 13 at 2am EST (that’s 1am CST and 12:00 MST).
So if you like the projects on the Blogs you visit today, watch, and make your purchase!
My friend wanted to make a recipe book for her friend, but she does not have a Cricut so I helped (I made the whole thing actually lol) her make one without the aid of any die-cutting machine. I know, I know, My poor Imagine just gave me sad eyes all day. But I did use my cuttlebug for the book cover. And Wow! It turned out so cute. For the cover I used Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder.
All paper used in this book is from Bo Bunny "Kitchen Spice"
Next I cut out 10 4x6 rectangles and inked up the edges.
I added some flowers and buttons just for a more personal touch. It really does not take much to make one of these books POP!
I added a cute sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps " A Pinch & A Dash"
As You can see, this book holds alot pages, and for recipes you can double side the pages.
I have more books planned out in my head for the holiday season. A First Year Book filled with photos of my sons first year. I think my sons family in California would love to see how he has grown up through photographs. The possibilities are endless with the YourStory Photo. Not to mention its cute and compact. It does not take up any space at all.
Blog Candy is a Pink Journey YourStory Kit. And dont forget the Grand Prize donated by ProvoCraft...A Cuttlebug.
