This week's design team challenge included one of our favorite things. That is to Customize a project to give someone a hand crafted gift that is perfect for them. Each of these ladies gave Paper Vineyard a six letter or less word that they wanted a custom book made of.
Gayl chose XMAS to make a Christmas gift for a friend.
Her "recipe" for the book includes:
Custom Chipboard Book - Grapevine Designs from Paper Vineyard
Letters inked - Tim Holtz Winter Distress Ink
Paper - Little Yellow Bicycle - "Wonder & Wishes", Best Creation Inc - "Merry Christmas", Cosmo Cricket
Chip Board Ornament - Ikea, "Merry" button Evalicious, Snow Flakes - Cost Plus
A fun aspect of making a "mini book" is that you can add so many different things to the book. This book features pockets, tags, book-in-a-book and a Christmas card that Gayl made in Jean's Crafting class.
Marijo picked a book that is very very close to her heart. Violet is the name of her granddaughter and she is going to love getting this book!
Marijo used different shades of violet cardstock from Bazzil to cover the chipboard book. She added purle ribbon from her stash and used her Cinch to pull it all together. Her final additions to the book are still underway as she is on a quest to collect purple inspired embellishments to make the book a one-of-a-kind for her one-of-a-kind granddaughter.
Starting December 1st there will be a "Check-In Deal" on Facebook. When you come into the store and check-in the deal will pop up and you can have paper purchased at Paper Vineyard cut to fit a custom book that you order. This is a minimum $13 savings. Normal turn around is two days to get your custom book completed. If you have ever traced a book and cut it out getting the paper cut to match is well worth it!! This is a great time to LIKE us on Facebook to get this deal.
Thanks to Marijo & Gayl for putting together these books. Over the next couple of weeks the store will be proud to show you some more samples.
