Artistic Etchings altered books

Hello there, crafting friends... A friend asked me to make 3 altered books, and I have looked into the Artistic Etchings and Notably Ornate stamp sets for inspiration for this one.
Making altered books are a fun project and you end up with something beautiful to keep or to give away, so why not... :)

I have enjoyed embellishing the book too: Love Letter DSP, Brights Designer Buttons, hemp twine, Basic Pearls, Basic Rhinestones, Chantilly lace...

Here is another one, using the color palette in the Springtime Vintage suite that is in the Occasions Mini catalog. A very pretty and very feminine patterned paper, that reminds me of Laura Ashley dresses - called Springtime Vintage DSP.

Matching stamp set called Baby Blossoms set. Paired with Antique Brad and a sliver of grosgrain ribbon. I made the square scallop die cut into a tag.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Happy crafting,
