Photo Wallet

Last night was crafting night at church. (Hi, Rhonda and Pauline!) It is so much fun to just hang out and stamp. And because it's planned, I actually do it! Rhonda and Pauline were both scrapping while I worked on this photo wallet. It was actually designed by Stampin' Up, and last spring they sold us kits with all of the pieces pre-cut. It's a good thing because I don't think I would make it on my own! The project itself is fairly simple, but there were lots of pieces. They originally showed it with Doodle This, but I decided to use Baroque Motifs to make it a little more elegant. It's held closed by a belly band. There are 3 pull-out pieces for photos; you can put one on each side for a total of 6. And the journaling is done on the black pieces underneath the pockets. I think it would look great with the white gel pen or a metallic marker. Or, as Pauline suggested, you could layer lighter cardstock on top of the black for the journaling. I think we'll be doing this in September for something fun and different.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Baroque Motifs; Paper: Marigold Morning (retired), Basic Black, Old Olive, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White Mini Envelopes; Inks: Basic Black, Old Olive, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise; Accessories: Basic Black grosgrain ribbon, Vintage brads, 1/16" hole punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, scallop circle punch

Jana, this little wonder looks as good in a picture as it did live and in person! I can't wait to make it. I can envision all sorts of color and paper varieties for individual people or events that would be really cool. It would be perfect for recording a night at the theatre, for instance, when you'd have a ticket stub and pieces of a playbill in addition to photos. Oh, it's just lovely.
