As some of you may already know, last year I was part of an incredible circle journal called the Lucky 13. The group consisted of 13 scrappers from around the world; each month we would exchange photos so that by the end of the year we would have 12 pages - one representing each month of the year - made by a different scrap artist. We exchanged pages this January!
The pages made for me are all so beautiful and unique - not only due to the amazing talents of these ladies, but also because we started not with paper, but 8.5X11"canvas fabric. Some layouts are vertical format, others horizontal. Some layouts were trimmed to be more square, others with so much embellishment and thickness that they are more dimensional art then layout. So when it came time for me to "bind" them together, I knew I was going to have a challenge. How to keep them together, but look cohesive?
I used the (insert trumpets here) Zutter 13X13 Cover-All, sized to accommodate the 12X12 Pre-Punched MOVABLE Page Protectors! All the layouts are small enough to fit on a 12X12 sheet of cardstock, so I adhered each one on a neutral (black) sheet.....just by themselves, no adornment, just the fabulous artwork. On the back of each cardstock page I placed a small card with a photo of the artist and a brief note on my thoughts about that person and their gift to me. The cardstock was inserted into the 12X12 Pre-Punched MOVABLE Page Protector,
I made a very simple intro page describing my experience with this project, as the opening page....it gives you an idea of how the Cover-All works.
Now I can only show sneaks of the layouts, since we are hoping to have these projects published soon, but you can see a bit of what I created for the other ladies here, and see what they have made here.
Have great, scrappy day!
