Grandma's Paper Dolls, a Handmade Spiral Bound Book








This is the 4th and last spiral bound book in my "Grandma's Paper Dolls" series. The collection was inspired by my lovely baby granddaughter! It was very enjoyable to work on this collection. The entire set was a learning experience, I even made each of the pages with the Heidi Swapp Binding System. They are chipboard covered with scrapbook paper. The dolls and their clothing are from a "StampNUp" set, that has been retired and I bought thru a secondary source online. I made use of the many metal cutting dies in my collection, putting them thru my Cuttlebug Machine. Several pages made use of the wide variety of stickers from my stash. It was great fun to work on and see it all come together.

I hope to work on a second limited addition in the near future.
