Decorating Books For Faithbooking

The second Saturday in April Tammy Skinner introduced Faithbooking to the blog followers on Cuttlebug Challenge. You might wonder what is Faithbooking , well to quote Tammy it is as follows: What is scrapbooking? Everyone knows that one, right? It's the preservation of our memories for generations to come.Well, that is exactly what faithbooking is too. That and so much more. In faithbooking, not only are you preserving  those memories...but you are sharing a piece of your spirit with your future generations.

I found this very inspiring. So the next day, I headed to Michaels to buy a $1.00 journal and a $5.99 album. Yesterday I did a little decorating of the books, so I would be ready for the next in series of lessons tomorrow. The album is a Recollections Damask. I did the designing using the Gypsy and  Lyrical Letters for the word saying as well as the butterflies. They were all cut using the Original cricut. Paper: DCWV Pastel with white core and AC Cardstock. The ribbons are Sugar n' Spice(butterflies) and Bobbin(Blessings). Embossing was done using the Cuttlebug and Divine Swirls folder. The embossing was sanded with a MM fine sanding block.
