{Mixed Media Tutorial} Memory Verse Booklet by Melissa

Hi!  I hope you enjoy seeing the process I used to create this memory verse booklet. 
I used the following STAMPlorations products for this tutorial:  
1. I started by making a cover. I sponged red and orange ink through the hidden hearts stencil onto heavy white cardstock. 

 2. I then double heat embossed with clear embossing powder on top of the inky image.

3. Using the emboss-resist technique, I sponged blue and turquoise onto the background.

 4. I die cut the embossed panel and added Glossy Accents to the heart and did some shading with several blue alcohol makers.

5. To make the back cover, I stamped on vellum in embossing ink and heat embossed with red embossing powder.

 6. Then, I die cut 7 tags (one extra for the future) out of heavy white cardstock and stamped the different verses, one to a tag.

7. I assembled the front cover, the verses, and the back cover tag onto a shower curtain ring to finish the booklet.

That's all I have for you for today. I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and look forward to reading your comments.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American Country Folk.
Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
