Honor Duty & Valor

Sorry I am late getting the patriotic mini book to you - my laptop had a virus and it took my DH a couple of days to fix it for me (isn’t he a sweetie).

I love how this mini booked turned out. The paper and the Memories of Patriotism stamp sheet go perfectly together. This was my first time playing with Memory Capsules from Ranger. All the inner pages were made from large office tags that I folded in different ways to make pockets.

Honor, Duty & Valor - cover:


Memory Capsule - see the nation map and stars - these were made from shrinky dink, the Eagle was water colored:

1st Pair of pages - the moments tap pulls out to add a picture:

2nd Pair of pages - faux metal technique for the dog tags:

3td Pair of Pages - micro glass beads on nation map and star, white stars are white shrinky dink:
