|Want to make some books?|
My friend Margarete showed me how to make this.....
|and she can show you too......|
|I had such fun working on this I knew I had to share.....|
Margarete taught us how to make these at an SF Correspondence meeting.
And then she came over to my studio to play!
|I love it when my friends come over to my studio and play. And I really love it when they arrive with show-and-tell.|
Just look at these wonderful FAT and happy altered books.
I couldn't want to get my hands on them -- want to see inside?
|My friend Margarete made them all -- and I now you are going to want to know more. Lucky for you, she has a blog and she does tutorials on YouTube!|
Here are her YouTube tutorials
You can see how she makes these beauties.....
|I love all the different papers and textures she puts in for pages....|
|This is her RED book -- and it is charmingly small -- just about postcard size. And I gave her the vintage red roses to include inside.....I'm just saying...|
|Of course, my favorite pages were the postal pages with vintage stamps and glassine envelopes and pages from old stamp albums.|
|Check out the cool pockets she makes.....|
|She also made a whole book from a Priority Envelope she received and the entire theme was postal....|
|Here's another spread with two kinds of pockets on either side....|
