I love all of your books! I would love to try making one of these (I have TONS of abandoned old cards) but I really have to make sure I'd have a good use for it first. I'm a total book/journal addict; I've got way too many, all of which are half-used.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Hi! I saw this tutorial on the Paper Crafts Tutorial List by SevsOnlyGirl and I was so inspired. I just found three decks of poker cards with a few cards missing in my drawer and had no idea what to do with it, so what luck I must have for finding this! Your book is adorable!

Anyways, here's what I ended up with. (I took waaaaay too much pictures...hehehe)


This is the front of the cover with a little elephant on it...

A close up of the pages.


The book contains all 26 alphabet letters in circus font, dipped in tea to give it an aged look. I didn't take a picture of it, but I also glued on a dedication on the front flap to my two heroes: John Merrick and Johnny Eck ("for my two Johnnys: Merrick, Eck")

Thanks again for the inspiration!!

This is really adorable and also inspiring. I was looking for a quick project to take my mind off the larger one COVERING my kitchen table as we speak. I wonder if this will be it? I spent three hours last night cutting stuff out of old calendars so...

Awesome tutorial!  I'm gonna go try one myself.  The transformation from the first pic with just the kitty paper and mini card to that gorgeous book is incredible.  Thanks!
