Happy Mother's Day!

Good Morning everyone!

Word books have become my favorite things to make! I realized the other day that I've made one for everyone EXCEPT my Mom. IF my Mom had realized this, I would be in big trouble. LOL It doesn't matter how old I am, in my Mom's eyes I'm still the "baby". Honestly, my Mom is awesome, so using my new Florals Embellished cartridge was perfect for this project. I picked the sayings out first, so it would describe my Mom when the book was closed.  I welded the words using my gypsy and cut out on my cricut expression.

The book measures 4.75 X 8.25. The 1st page is 4.75 X 4.75. The words were cut @ 1.5. I used a white gel pen to do the lettering and added some glossy accents. I picked up the green leaves at J's and the flower was from my stash.

With all my heart was cut @ 1.75 and the base piece was cut @ 4.75 X 5.5. The heart was cut out of red glitter paper and topped with glossy accents.

My Mother my friend was cut @ 1.25 and the base at 4.75 X 7.25.

You're the best was cut @ 2.5 and the base at 4.75 X 7. I used a white gel pen and a purple pen on the lettering, along with stickles and a viva decor violet pearl pen.

Happy Mother's Day was cut @ 2.5 and the base piece at 4.75 X 8.25. The butterflies and toad were cut from Nursery Tails and topped with glossy accents. I took some lace and hot glued it around the backside of the last page. All the paper used was K&Company and I stuck with the floral theme. I put it together using 3/4 in wires with my cinch. TFL!
