Mary's Birthday

My wonderful mother-in-law turned 80 this past May. My sister-in-law Lorraine purchased a vinyl guest book and passed it to me saying, "here I thought you could do something with this to dress it up, work your magic!" LOL

I wasn't sure what to do with it; how was I going to get things to stay on the vinyl? As you can see it was very plain! I started going through my DSP and stamps sets and I had some ideas.

This DSP from the retired paper pack Berry Blossoms(122350) became my inspiration. I paired the 2011-2012 in-colors card stocks, Wisteria Wonder(122922), Lucky Limeade(122926) and Calypso Coral(122925) along with some Whisper White(100730) with the Boho Blossoms punch( 119858), Big Shot BigzL die Fun Flowers(121812) Retired punch and the Little Leaves sizzlet(114511) to re-create this DSP on the album cover.
I made the large flowers 3D and adhered them to the vinyl cover with the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets(120805) Some Dazzling Details(124117) added to flowers and the album cover for some bling.

I used the matching stamp set, Fruit and Flowers(w-122605 or c-122607) to create a background for the inside cover as well as the Perfectly Penned set(w-122890 or c-122892) for the Happy Birthday as well as the inks to match the cardstock, Wisteria Wonder(126985), Calypso Coral(126983) and Lucky Limeade(126984)
 Second generation stamping was used to create the background for the inner pages of the book.
I hope this gives you some ideas and that you enjoyed this project. It was actually very fun to do once I sat down to do it.

Thanks for coming by!
