As promised, I've got a sneak peek at one of my Christmas gifties. My nephew has recently discovered the Wimpy Kid series of books and has been collecting them. I was absolutely thrilled. Until I saw how he was putting his name in them. YIKES!!! But, have no fear All Booked Up is here. I wasn't sure how much use I'd get out of this set and the matching dies, but I am now hooked. Aren't these pretty?
The bookplates were die cut from whole sheet adhesive labels from Avery using the Mat Stack 3. This is actually the second set I did. I tried stamping the centre image in a contrasting colour and also in black, but wasn't happy with the look. On a whim, I tried using the same colour for both the mat and the image and struck gold. I really like the monochromatic look on each one. Before wrapping them up, I will write his name in to give them a more polished look.
Hope you like it and I hope it inspires all you PTI fanatics who bought All Booked Up to whip up a few sets as well. And if you do, be sure to share. We can all use a little inspiration.
Have a great one & be sure to make time to get inky!
