Custom Covers for Yourstory

I'm now FINALLY able to post this on my blog after receiving a lot of questions about my spoiler in the Provocraft forum.  Before I show you how it was done, let me share what was done.

This is a mini book I created that showcased some of the fun moments during the last year of my life.  I wanted to keep it very casual and very fun.  I actually used my "Quad-fecta"- Yudu, Yourstory, Criuct, & Cuttlebug- all in this one project!  Here's each page:

Now, here's the video to show you how to create a custom book cover to use with Yourstory.  I must warn you, I had Yudu on my brain while filming, so I call the Yourstory "Yudu" a couple of times!  Sorry about that, understand. :)  Enjoy and please let me know of any questions you have!

Last Minute Card

I had to make this card Sunday night at the last minute.  It was unexpected and took me about an hour to complete, but I'm happy with it.  I once again used oil pastels rather than ink to do my shading, because I needed more blendability and a softer effect overall.

Iris Folding Revisited

I decided to revisit some iris folding and really picked a good one.  It was a little difficult to figure out, and honestly, I'm not even sure I ever did!  I just know that I like the way it came out and will have to try this pattern again...after a little break from it!

Here Comes the Bride!

I've been waiting for over a year and a half to use this SVG file on a card.  I decided to use it on the inside and I love how it layers!

Exploring Robotz

I was really excited to explore this cart and it proved very worthy.  I absolutely love it and I must try some of the other cuts!

Me and Mom

My mom and I took this picture on vacation before going to dinner.  It took three times to get it with both of our eyes open, but we managed.

Crazy & Campy Layout

After 8 weeks of teaching 160-something kinds about acting, music, and dance with my fellow faculty members, I decided to scrap about it.  It was my first year teaching at Theatre Jacksonville and I really enjoyed it.  The layout came from a sketch that was a challenge on Platinum Scraps.
