Set the Scene project booklet

Today is the day of our new release blog hop. If you haven't started your hop stop reading and go visit our company blog for the list! www.starvingartistamps.blogspot.com There are so many amazing projects and one of us has blog candy! If you are already done with the hop but just cant get enough of our great new DoodleFactory backdrops then read on!

Normally I'm someone who is big on instant gratification, so this project was a demonstration of my patience. It took a few hours to put this project together but I really love it and I think it was worth it. See if you can guess what the theme for this booklet is!

This is the inside of my four panel accordion booklet:
Page 1 and 2

Page 3 and 4


Back of booklet, grosgrain ribbon secured with ATG gun
and reinforced with red snaps (on the inside)



This is the cover:

I ran into some technical difficult when I realized all the backgrounds
except for the jungle are all horizontal! So I did some clever editing some
nipping and tucking and expanded the vertical layout on the jungle
by adding the plant and vines to the sides.

Here is a close up of page 1:

Here is a close up of page 2:

Here is a close up of page 3:



Here is the last page, which ties in the whole theme:

So what's the theme? Well it's returning home!
Be it by airplane, skateboard, helicopter, taxi or bicycle,
however you have to get there, just get there!

So cool Tracey! I love your book. Each page is so fun! I couldn't even tell that you had to fudge the jungle scene until you pointed out how you did it.

Wow Tracey, you've outdone yourself!

LOVE the transportation themed booklet and your clever solution for the jungle (which is my favorite of yours - who would have thought to fly Chip through the jungle in an airplane????)
