Rena's It gift

Rena is the "IT" girl on Art-Venturer's for July, and she choose the theme of Children. I decided to make her a embossing folder holder (or it can hold photos or whatever she decides). For the front cover, stamped some flourishes with a mixture of white and silver glitter acrylic paints over a sheet of paper that had been in the bottom of my spray box.
Trimmed the sheet down and ran it through a Cuttlebug embossing folder of bubbles.
For the back cover, choose another sheet that had been used in the bottom of my spray box, sponged on some of the whites/silver glitter acrylic paint mixture, stamped on some flourishes with purple dye ink and ran it through the same embossing folder.
Found some more paper that had been in the bottom of my spray box, again sponged on some white/silver glitter acrylic paint mixture , stamped on the flourishes with light green dye ink, and ran them through the same embossing folder.
Printed out some vintage images of children. On two of the photos, stamped the same flourish with green dye ink, and added a rub on saying to the photo of the children in the tub.
Bound the finished covers with 4"x6" plastic photo holders (they are a great size to hold the large Cuttlebug embossing folders), using the Zutter Bind-it-All. On the front I added a photo of two children in a framed ATC mat along with a small stamped butterfly, cut out and glued to the photo. Stamped a saying with black Versafine ink onto a sprayed sheet of paper, stamped on some of the flourishes and layered on to black paper.
Inside front cover:
Inside back cover, added a saying:
Finished back cover, stamped on a butterfly with black Vesafine ink and layered a vintage image onto black paper.
Hope Rena enjoys this.

I love these books you are doing for cuttlebug folders. Hope you don't mind if I copy your idea and make a book or two for myself.
