Emma's Throwback Challenge

This weeks Emma's Throwback Challenge is to use the New Arrival Cartridge.
I am trying to make another Cora book for her mom. I have finished the first two pages. For this book I am making her name at the end of each page instead of under each page like in my first books. I was going to make a video of doing this book but I had so much trouble I decided to leave it to the experts like Emma at My Creative Time, Christian at Creations with Christina, and Megan at Above Rubies Studio. These ladies really know there stuff. I have Megan's Gypsy A to Z and I couldn't have done what I did without her help.

I made the monkey to look like Cora's favorite little friend. Then on the second page (O), I used the sweet little sweet pea cut, because she is such a sweet pea. I used Peachy Keen stamps Critter Faces SET A Medium and Everyday Character Face Assortment to stamp both the monkey and the baby pea face. I used Viva Decor Glitter Liner and a white gel pen to add dimension. Oh yes, I used Copic markers to the edge of the cuts.

I went through so much paper getting the four page cut. I can't tell you what paper I ended up using. Each letter has two DP and a core of cardboard. I used old cereal boxes.

The grommets are from SU.

I have two more pages to do. Oh, no that isn't right. I will want to do the back of each page too. So stop back to see what I come up with.

Thanks for stopping,
