Alaskan Cruise Wordbook
This is an Alaskan Cruise wordbook that I am working on for a friend. Originally, I made the cruise ship using dark blue, red, and white. But, as I looked at the ship and the colors, I decided I wanted cooler colors. I asked for some tips on making the glacier, and received some very good advice. I ended up using felt to create the glacier. I used some blue catseye ink around the edges, and some clear glitter to add some shine.
On the pages to the right of the book, I added a glacier and a place to add photos. On the left hand side of the pages, I just adhered a piece of cardstock. I like leaving some blank areas in the wordbooks when I make them for other people so they can add their own touch to the books.
I had fun working on this. My hubby helped me some, I didn't have a cartridge with a cruise ship so I had to make my own using basic shapes from the cricut, so, I used my hubby's expertise in ships to help me construct this one...I think it turned out pretty cute. Oh, and not to mention I used the peachy keen faces in the windows...
Thank you for taking a looksie!...Deanna
