Deb's Page Preparations............

I have decided not to go too far ahead with preparing my pages as they are all different sizes and shapes.  I thought it might be best to choose my page for each day as it comes depending on what I have to record for that day.  However I have prepared the binding, ready to be attached as I create each page.   Continuing on with my canvas paper as I used on my cover ,  I decided to randomly stamp full pages using a variety of stamps. 

Then using my template,  I've cut individual strips from the stamped canvas paper and decorated the edges......some have been stamped and some machine sewn.  This size will fit the larger pages of my album well but some will need to be cut for the smaller pages.

I also purchased some "POP" tape which I had never used before and thought that it might make an alternate binding.   I was a little worried that the thickness of the canvas paper on each page may make it all a bit too bulky.  

So with that in mind I used one of the canvas pages that I had stamped (as an experiment) and had not cut up into strips thinking that I may include  some of them throughout my album as well.  The POP tape didn't stick as well as I would have liked so it was stitched down. 

I've already decided that this transparency will be my introduction page so to that I have added one of the canvas binding strips (folded in half, slipped over the edge and glued) and punched the holes. Just a little fabric and rub on/sticker alphas added to the transparency to start my album off.   I'm really liking the stamped page with the POP tape binding behind this transparency so I'm thinking this may work for my day 1............we'll see.

How is everyone's preparations going?  We'd love to see them..............
