Jacobs Ladder

Here are a few shots of a Jacobs Ladder book I made for yet another swap. I used 3 1/4 inch square pieces of mountboard as the base and covered them with K & Co printed papers cut to 3 inches square. The edges of the mountboard were swiped with a Distress inkpad in tattered straw before covering with the paper squares. The Jacobs Ladder was then assembled before final decoration.

I then cut 6 x 2 inch squares of light card in each of light tan and grey which I stamped with Tanda Stamps flourishes (Set 1) stamps using versamark ink and heat embossed each image using different EP's. I edged each square with black stazon before adhering to the squares once the Jacobs Ladder was assembled. The front and the back of the book was decorated with stamps and black stazon and also epoxy stickers before finishing with a piece of moss green satin ribbon tied in a bow on the front. The inspiration came from Craft TV Weekly

I have not embellished this with photos but it makes a super little album to give as a gift to relatives or friends especially when the pics are those of loved ones.

  7. How's that for a pleasant surprise, due to the high tuition costs within the U. Apart through the excellent quality academic learning and teaching provided at institutes in Canada, the Canadian system of education comes with a wholesome learning experience knowning that too at reasonable prices. However, parents, counselors and students have to ask themselves exactly the things they want to buy.
