Sunday Scrap: Twin-book

Last Wednesday we had a 
blog hop and i told you I had some computer
problems and was unable to post all the 
pictures I wanted. Today I make it up to you
and share my project.

and I knew right away that I needed to have it.
It is in the store HERE.
And then the twinchie album became a Twin-album!
For with the new babies there are so many cute pictures,
I cannot print enough of them and this album is the cutest!

So here is the front of the album. All papers
come from the Woven Strands kit. The owls are the theme
of the baby anouncement card,so I had to add those
(from the It's a Hoot kit) and the letters of
the twins are the Michael Strong alphabet stamps.

The flowers are made with some of the UM stamps.
Embossed with glitter black embossing bowder and cut out. 
the heart is apunch and a gemstone from the kit.
Leaves are dies as well as the sculped background.
And now for the inisde of the book:
you can click on all the pictures and see a larger version.

This is on the inside cover of the book
and I want to share with you how it is done.

First I stamped the UM tree stamp ( from the borders and
backgrounds here) in versamark and embossed it
with black embossing powder.
Next I took a green inkpad and a fingersponge.

These sponges make nice round stamps.

I used it to cover the top of the tree.

With brown I colored the roots the same way.

And the trunk and branches I colored with a 
dark green glaze pen.

Now you will see all the inside pages.
Some words are stamped...and this kit has just the
perfect sentiments fo my twin book
and some words I printed with the computer.
The free font for this kit is called:
Elementry Gothic Bookhand and you
find it HERE.

Even the twinchie parts (2 inch x 2 inch) come in
as handy elements.

But by cutting a 4 x 4 inch picture, you
can also add a picture in the little pockets.
Please have a look at all the pages I created,
they do not need much explanation.

The last page is the inside cover of the album
and a pocket was created here.I made a tag to 
put in the pocket,but because the tag became to long
I had to cut a piece of. i added this on the pocked
and it gives a wonderful effect.
Here you see all of the tag.

Thank you so much for looking
and sorry again about not posing
last Wednesday. I hope it was worth it to
come back here.

Have a creative day!

Oh Hetty, what a joy to see the twins doing so well...a true blessing to the entire family. I love your idea of cutting the picture into just pops by doing that. Thank you for sharing your family with us.
