I painted the cover with acrylic paint, and because the shade of green I chose was so bright, I painted a layer of Mister Huey Gold on top to tone it down a tiny bit. Then I added the stickers and die cuts and used mod podge to keep everything in place (my first time mod podging!!) The little brad is from Echo Park.
Some of the pages have little bits that stick out from the edges - tags and ribbons and labels.
The inside of the book includes my favorite photos of my boys throughout 2012 with lots of layering and embellishing and even some watercolors to add color to the book pages. I used the Peerless Watercolor system which is available here at Studio Calico. I started with the Maggie Holmes kit that is no longer available, but I also used lots and lots of stuff from my stash.
Some of the products I used are older and no longer available, and I also used lots of printables from Studio Calico. I linked up what I could below, and I was happy to discover that some of the older Studio Calico wood veneer sets are still available on Amazon. If there's a product that you're interested in that isn't linked below, just leave me a comment and I'll let you know what it is.
