Life Mini Book Using GCD Studios Paper!
I've been working on this mini book called "Life" about my new life as Andrea Bethke, a wife to Ryan Bethke, and no longer Andrea Elizarrez, single gal. I used mainly GCD Studios paper and diecuts mostly from the Debonair collection but also from their Canta and Chic Bebe lines. I love GCD Studios, their papers are so luxurious just like they say --- really thick, high quality paper that feels almost like fabric or something! And it's so affordable! In fact, my husband Ryan was shopping with me for this mini book a while back and it was the first time he touched the GCD paper when he was putting it in my cart and he said "WOW, this is awesome...thats the price?", he was just shocked at how inexpensive it was considering how nice the paper was. He says he loves the texture! I love that my hubby is getting into my scrapbooking and all the products and companies that I love! And I love GCD! I have a few of their paper stacks, like "Cloissone" which is really cute for Valentines Day and "Canta", which I am going to use for a rainyday-sunnyday minibook I'm making because its all blue and yellow and green. Check out their stuff if you havn't already, I especially love and really want bad their new Homespun Chic and Artsy Urban collections from Melody Ross. The Homespun Chic is uber cute with vintage/retro gals from the fifties and the Artsy Urban has beautiful butterflie! They are both coming out soon! (and I will be buying them soon :-) !!) Oh, back to my book, I hope you like it, I had so much fun making it and will try to make a video tutuorial soon on some of the cool layouts and techniques I used for it!
