Forgotten Meadows using an Accordion Book Kit

Hello Bloggers

An Accordion Book Kit is perfect for making a mini book & using one of the cardmaker/mini packs of papers. This one is using the Forgotten Meadows Collection mini pack designed by Kerry-Jean Watson & is made to stand as shown.

Front of book
details of front corner

page 1 & 2. stamps from Design Elements Collage Stamps
oops - pearl missing

pages 3 & 4 Vintage Ladies from ATC006 but you could easily use your own pics 

pages 5 & 6 + Cut & Create Forgotten Meadows

back of book is kept simple
 Hope you like it. Please remember when using an accordion book kit that you have to add the ribbon closure between the covers before you add paper & embellishments to the hard cover. Second thing to remember is to leave enough between the covers so that you can add embellishments inside the book.  Best way to accomplish both of these is to do the inside pages & finish them before adding ribbon closure & covers.  This one uses cream organza ribbon which does not show up well in the pics.

Bye for now
