Bazzill Board Book sample

Today, I had the good fortune of putting together this little Bazzill Board Book as a sample for the store where I teach. This particular book came with the supplies needed to create the suggested album cover as shown in the picture below. The great thing about this board book is that the chipboard covers are already covered in Bazzill cardstock, and 10 inner pages are included. You cannot go wrong with this little book!

This particular kit included some of Bazzill's new tulle -- basically a very fine netting that ties like ribbon but provides a lot more volume. It was fun to test this product...not new to folks who sew, but definitely new to the scrapbooking scene.

Of course, I decided to change the design when I put together the sample. (Those of you who know me know that I cannot tilt ANYTHING, so you can see that I had no choice!) I flipped the book so that it opens from the bottom, then I added a light green mat to visually ground the pieces. (Remember the term "sticker sneeze" from days gone by? The idea is to visually connect the elements so that they don't float randomly!) I also left a bit of white edge showing when I covered the chipboard package to make the package stand out more from the background.

I know that my fellow scrapbookers will love the new Bazzill Board Books and tulle!
