Today I have something to show which really took me out of my comfort zone, Sarah recently got the new Teresa Collins Flip Books in stock at S J Crafts and asked the DT if any of us would like to have a go with one. I had been looking at these and thought they would be fun to play with so said yes! Only then did I realise just how far out of my comfort zone I had taken my self, now I’m not ashamed to admit that scrapbooking frightens the life out of me all that space on a 12 x 12 sheet no thank you I’d rather stick to my 6 x 6 cards. These flip books are great they are all ready for you to decorate, they are made from thick black card so nice a neutral for any colour scheme. I decided I was going to use my to record Aimee’s first experience of horse riding. I chose to use the Glitz Wild & Free papers as some of the papers had horses on and the rest had lovely bold patterns which went with my photos. I didn’t mount any of my papers as the black pages looked perfect as a mount for the papers plus it helped not to make the book to thick so the flipping action still worked. Embellishment wise I used some washi tape, Studio Calico wood grain enamel dots, punched flowers and some chipboard shapes with I coloured with my promarkers and ink pads. I’ve keep this post fairly short as it’s quite picture heavy if you have any questions please ask Don’t forget Annie from the DT also posted about a flip book including some fab video you can find her post here.
