Loving the Big Shot

The Big Shot is such a great machine. I find I am using it more and more with my projects. Gosh and to think that I once said I would never need this machine.
I was asked by a friend to make a book for her sons 21st birthday. She wanted something that all the guests could sign. I had forgotten that I took photos of this book until I downloaded my camera today. So pleased I did as it is always good to look back on what projects one does.
So here are the pics and a description on the pages......

I used some very thick craft board that I had put away "Just in Case" I could use it one day. I glued Very Vanilla card to both sides of it and then ran it through the big shot with the Scallop  Square die. I found a Celtic type cross online, so printed it off and cut it out so that I could make a mask. I sponged randomly over the page, spritzed all over, then removed the mask and spritzed a little more. I then covered it all in Versamark and clear embossing powder and heat embossed it.
For the back I prepared it the same way but instead of the Celtric Cross I cut out a 21 and stamped some keys.

All the other pages were covered with DSP. I cut out a frame from the now retired Beau Chateau DSP.
I made secret pockets and lots of tags that could be written on. The other DSP I used was the Neutrals Pattern Designer Series.
All the edges of the pages were sponged and then the pages were held together with rings.
I decorated the rings with bits of ribbon, string and a key.
