My teaching partner needed a meaningful wedding gift. He had words of wisdom that he wanted to share with the groom and asked if I could make a keepsake. I picked Classic Editions papers for the masculine and household decor friendly colors. It's on CLEARANCE, y'all! Get it while you can.
In addition to the Classic Editions paper on the cover, I stamped over it with Feather Grass Flourish PreCut Set and heat embossed with a sparkly gold. The latches were die cut from Spellbinders Elegant Posts and the title piece was cut from Spellbinders Labels 4. I typed everything on the computer and printed onto cardstock and Classic Editions paper.


I made the pages 4x6 so it would be easy to print onto the Classic Editions papers.



Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea! Perfect masculine project. The cover is great with the little hinges and all tied up with that ribbon, which reminds me of a man's tie.
