If you follow my posts, you know that I made a bag book
for my daughter's boyfriend, Jason, for his birthday.
I mentioned in the post about it that I had made a book that
just was not him at all.
Well this is that book. I do like it, but
it just isn't right for him.
A couple of the pages are okay, but the others just don't
work for him.
I'm sure I'll add a few more touches to this one and will
find a good use for it.
This is the front and the back covers.
I love the paper I used for it, it actually has a bit of
glitter on it. That's probably why it just isn't "right" for this guy.
I like to put a title of some kind on the front also,
I'll decide that when I decide what to do with this book.
I love the subtle colors on this page.
Here are the tags.....
....and the other side of the tags.
I loved how this page turned out!
This one suits a man better I think, at least the one
I was making it for.
The key on the tag has "24-7-365" stamped into it,
I wish I had more of that key, I love it!
I stamped the words and sponged Distress Ink onto the
edges of the tag.
I decided to do a little stamping on some of the pages.
I used a couple border stamps along the edges of this one.
Stamping isn't just for cards.
And my last page.......
It's a little hard to see the pattern that I fussy cut around
on the tag in this picture, but it really does look very nice.
So that's my "failure" that wasn't a failure at all.
I think this book turned out great, just not for the person
I planned to give it to.
Thanks for coming by today.
I hope you have been inspired in some way.
Until next time,
don't give up when something isn't quite what you planned,
I'm sure it will work out in the end.
