More covers for ATC books

I have more ATCs that need to be placed in protector sheets and bound in a book. Much easier to look through them that way. Also another opportunity to play with favorite calendar images. Must admit I'm a hopeless romantic. I've kept this one calendar for 23 years. Love the combination of gorgeous paintings with romantic poetry. I'll use these four in the covers along with some thin cardboard (that came with the sheet protectors) and a decorative paper bag. Love re-using!
The light is going so the background stamping doesn't show up very well. After adhering the calendar pages to the paper lined covers, stamped flourishes with both milled lavender and dusty concord Distress inks over the edges of the calendar pages and the background papers, and some other stamped images with the dusty concord Distress ink.
On the front, added a fantasy film heart, a purple bling flourish and some beads & fiber (the long beads were made by Sweetpea and the round ones by Linda Strawn from a fun bead swap).
Inside front cover, added another bead by Sweetpea and key and a small star bling.
Fun collection of ATCs, much better in page protectors in a book, then sitting in a box.
Added another fantasy film heart (you can see how the heart was made here) to the inside back cover.
Back outside cover:
And I have more of these calendar pages for another book........

I like the idea of making your own binders. I have my ATCs sitting in page protectors inside regular view binders: not nearly as pretty as yours.
