MIM #216: Adding Color to Cover Plates


Mondays are full of inspiration and instruction.
Laura Bassen has a wonderful video on Papertrey this morning,
showing us how to wow with our cover plates!


My baby boy turns 37 tomorrow!
He loves all things wood, and I found some wood paper I knew would be perfect
for him.
It's actual wood on card stock, and takes ink sponged on just like staining wood!

Saw from Handy Hardware
Text Block: Horizontal Birthday Die
Sew Simple Borders Stamp Set
ARC Crafts BARC Wood
Rustic White Cardstock
