Princess Themed Blog Hop - My Princess Book with Imaginisce

Welcome to my blog and the Princess Blog Hop. If you happen to stumble upon my Blog and would like to play along please do so by starting at Sylvia's blog over at If you came from the very talented Haidee's Created 2 Bunique then you are heading in the right direction. I hope that you will enjoy the Princess Castle Book that I made for the hop and be patient with all of the photos that I placed on my blog today. I took a KaiserCraft 4 page book and made more pages and inserts for it. My plans are to do a dress up album on my 5 year old grand daughter after Christmas with all of her princess clothes on.

Here are some clear charms that are on one the top rings of my book, they are a bit hidden in all of the ribbon and lace that I tied on the rings.

This is the front on the KaiserCraft Book, I added some Hambly overlays and made sure when I covered the back of the book that you were able to see through the windows.

The Back of the front of the book, I used the Imaginisce Enchanted Collection of paper, rub on, etc.

I love to doddle so I did the border with a Signo White Pen, this is the first of the pages that I cut from Chipboard and added to the KaiserCraft Book.

The back side of the page, I used more of the Hambly Overlay and some felt green ribbon and gemstones

I added a large metal Blessed title to this page that I made from chipboard.

This is the back side of the page, my flower is made from two different size scallop circles, I cut toward the center of each of each of the circles to form the circle and added a brad to the center.

Here is the second of the original book, I added a ribbon and a ribbon slide to the bottom of my page

I used a Snag'Em Stamp from the Enchanted collection and colored it in with my water colored pencils.

Here is another page that I cut from chipboard and added to the book.

I added some more of the Hambly Overlay with a rub on from the collection.

On this page that I added I made an insert pocket to give a little more interest to my book and also give a secret hiding place.

See it just slides in behind the photo mat that I made.

This is the back side of the page. On chipboard "Play All Day" I added a little Glossy Accent to give the word "ALL" a little pop off the page.

The third page of the original book I added two photo mats, rub ons and some gemstones to the bottom. On the turrets I made windows out of a paper doilies, I also did the roof using the scraps from the doilies.

The back side of the page, I added a rub on to the left side of the page and place a border down the middle so I would know where to place my photo when I was ready.

I added some more doodle lines to this page that I made from Chipboard and added a rub on carriage to the left side.

On the back side I added a My Minds Eye rub on.

and then on the corresponding page continued with the rub on from the package.

Of course this is an extra page that I added to the book.

And here is the backside of the page along with another rub on from the Imaginisce Enchanted collection.

This is the last page of the original KaiserCraft Book. I did some fussy cut flowers on the bottom of my photo mat. You can actually see through the window that I placed the Hambly Overlay in.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my Castle book as much as I had making it for my little "Princess". Your next stop on the Princess Themed Blog Hop is with the fabulous Laura at Sunflower Creations.
