Raining Cats & Dogs Book & Box

Hello Everyone
Graphic 45 have done a blog post showing projects made with their Raining Cats & Dogs Collection. Their post includes my Raining Cats & Dogs Book & Box.  Which I designed and taught at Seriously Scrapbooking. The book and box very popular and I really enjoyed watching my ladies delight as their book and box all came together.

When I saw Graphic 45’s Raining Cats and Dogs Collection I knew it was time to do something special for our gorgeous dog named Smudge who passed away several years ago. The papers were just fantastic, so many happy and bright colours with lots of wonderful images to use. The book opens out to a star shape and comes with a gorgeous tea caddy style box to keep it safe when not in use.  I used a new technique for this book; the floor of each page is carefully folded to enable the pop out elements on each page. Just perfect to showcase your very special friend.

 There are five pages each with pop out elements and a space for a photo.

Many people have been asking for kits of this project since Scrapbooking Creations published it in one of their magazine editions but we are still a while off kits as it is quite a complicated project to write instructions for. So many things are always happening at once all the time, I have started the long process of writing the instructions, but it is going to take a while. I also need to make the book again so the step by step photo's can be taken. So keep in touch, once I have them done - I will post it on my blog here and on facebook.
Thank you for looking at my blog, be sure to have a look at Graphic 45's Blog (click here) to see more amazing projects.
