This will give you the important part of the story...

The story was told to me during my teenaged years when I was a bit different than everyone else.

Kaesea- what's the inside of your book like?

Was this question intended for me or was it for goatgoddess? The 3rd and 5th shots in my post show my book open. I think we're still waiting to see what amazing things foufigirl did inside of goatgoddess' book -- she said in her last post that she ran out of time last night but will try to post photos tonight (by her Thank Goodness it's Friday comment, I think she's had a rough week!  Wink)

Keasea- was your card made with digital images you drew? It's super cool!!

When I first read this question, I wondered again if it was for me... then I went back and looked at the card. Oh, yeah! It IS me! It's a digital image, although I didn't really draw it myself -- more like tracing. I've never tried that before and I think it came out really well.

I used several bird photos and then basically reduced them to line drawings in Photoshop. Then I fiddled around with coloring and shading. I really like how the image turned out. I'm glad you like it too!  Grin

I know we're not really posting cards in this gallery, but since I'm talking so much about the card, it seems weird not to show it. So here it is:

Yeah sorry!
I meant to address the first question to GoatGoddess and yes the second one was for you Smiley
It's really neat how you did that card and it really stands out in the book- I love it  Cheesy

Ack!  I just replied with comments from all seven pages, and I hit one of my laptop's "mystery buttons."  All gone.

Anyway, I love the star shape for the comedian book.  Fitting shape for the topic, and a great option for displaying all of them simultaneously when you want to.

Kaesea's card was one of the first I received for Bobolink, and I knew right away that it would be a hard set to send away.  I spent a lot of time looking at that one.  I'm glad Bobolink appreciates it as much as I did.  I wish I knew how to do things like that on the computer (or in any other way, for that matter).  Great job, K!

The photo of Sacre Coeur originally had a goofy picture of my college roommate striking a mock victorious pose.  I pull it out every once in a while for a giggle, and I'm always struck by the blue of the sky (it was such a gorgeous day).  I found a double print when I sorted through things from my trip on an ephemera search.  Doing that card was a bit of nostalgia...

I KNOW THAT TOMATO ASPIC!  Stifflersmom is really getting mileage out of one of her cookbooks.  She put that aspic on my Altoid tin in the last swap.  I keep it filled with mints in my desk at school (and show it off regularly).  Smiley

That's so funny that you did a similar book for your partner, Bobolink!  Especially since I looked at tutorials and books, and then just went at it with a recycled cover, a bunch of paper, and my typical figure-it-out-as-I-go-along mindset.  We must have had some sort of psychic connection going on.  I can't wait to see how yours turned out!  I know you love birds, so I figured your flock would grow and it would be good to leave you some extra space.  (I should stick some extra photo corners in the mail for you, so you can have the same type.  Why didn't I think of that before?)

Well, great job, everyone!  I knew I'd find this gallery a little late and have a lot to catch up on.  Fortunately, it's good eye candy!

Ah but you forget Bigmouth we are on the same wavelength!
I just bought that exact same type for my Dad's ATC book a week or so ago  Grin

Did you find the tutorial for the pirate journal that girl made?

Ha!  I should have known.  And, no, I haven't seen that tutorial.  I'll go see if I can look it up and see if my "method" (quotation marks intended) was similar.

Edit:  Found it!  Why didn't I think before to look for the Paper Crafts Tutorial List?  Silly me. 
That was my first thought for putting the pages together, but I wanted each two-page spread to have the same paper (I loved the branch papers, but they would have clashed in a really ugly way, I think).  So I put the folds, instead of the edges, into the binding.  I used a lot of glue, because each set of paper is glued entirely to another.
And did you notice how well some of the cards matched the papers?  I'm thinking particularly about gingerquilts' card and the pink flowers, as well as all the others that perched so nicely on the branch prints.  I don't think you were the only swapper who was on my wavelength in this swap!  Smiley

I wish I would taken some--and I gave a big sigh of relief when I realized all y'all's cards arrived safely to Bobolink.  I would have felt terrible if the package went MIA with no photographic record of your work!

Hmm well the pirate journal tutorial I used does put the folded edges towards the binding and the glued edges outwards.
I definitely noticed how well Gingerquilts card went- I adore that card!
