Now that the excitement (at least in Robin’s Craft Room) about the Stampin’ Up! "Last Chance" lists having been published, it’s time to get back to an old project and let you know what I did with it.
Back in April, I told you about having found my mother’s Memory Book from her High School graduation in 1940. Since then, I’ve been working on and off on it, sometimes for days at a time. It took me awhile to figure out what exactly I was going to do about pulling it apart and then putting it back together. I decided at some point that the "new" version of the book would be a gift to my niece, Margie – my mother’s only granddaughter – on the occasion of her graduation from a graduate program at Johns Hopkins University last month.
While I didn’t get all the embellishing done that I’d like to have done, I nonetheless finished the book in time to take it to the graduation. I wrote up a summary of what I did with the book, and thought I’d share it with you. You can click here for the summary, which also contains a link to a YouTube slide show of the pages in the "new" Memory Book.
And of course I used all Stampin’ Up! products for the project!
Now back to figuring out what to do with all the "retired" Stampin’ Up! stuff in the craft room! For sure I’m going to have a sale–probably at my New Catalog Open House in July!
