Hi everyone!! Lynne here, and today I have an address book for you. I actually had this book in my stash, and as soon as I pulled it out, I knew it would be perfect with Graphic 45's Off To The Races Collection.
This little binder is very old, but the colors are perfect with the papers, so I didn't want to cover the whole thing, instead, I opted to just layer my papers, chipboard pieces and flowers on top of the cover......more like an accent.
I diecut a few doilies to layer in between the papers. I also tucked in a few blooms among the papers, along with a bit of cheesecloth in and around the flowers. I distressed the edges of the papers, but didn't add any inking, I wanted the colors to stay pure.
I adore these Garden Rosettes.......so gorgeous!! and these colors are just perfect!!
I did make a few pages for the binder, thinking that I would turn it into a mini......but I decided to go ahead and use it as an address book instead. In the end, it looks much better, and is far more useable for what I want. I will probably turn the rest of the pages into tags and/or cards.
I hope that you enjoyed my address redo, and that you will be inspired to remake, and revamp some of the items you've been hoarding in your stash!!
