The Book of Treasures

I'm so happy, because my partner received my "Book of Treasures" I made for her, and she LOVED it! Here's what she said about it on my ratings on

"I want to let you know that this is the most wonderful swap that I have EVER received. Ever. I have had ties for favorites up till now but this takes it all. This is the coolest thing I've ever received in the mail I think. It's so well put together. And you did it so fast! And you incorporated so much of my profile into it. And it's exactly what the swap called for plus like 100% more. It was so hard not to just rip that black rubber band off of it to get into the book (don't worry I carefully removed it). I'm actually hesitant to remove any of the treasures because I really want to put in like a museum or something. Seriously. Thank you. Thank you thank you!! I adore it."

Here's some photos of the various pages inside the book. I used an old children's book as the backing, and it was such a perfect book going through various seasons and it fit perfectly to the alterations I did for each page. We had to have a certain number of "treasures" in the book put into it in some way, I used envelopes, ribbon and other ways to put the treasures in. Some of the treasures I included were scrapbooking materials, a finished ATC, a dotee doll in a pop-out bag, a letter that opened up, postcards, a real vintage photograph, some flower photos I took, and a worry doll among other things.


  1. Wow, that is just amazing! So beautiful and with a treasure on every page... I'm so jealous! Although I'd probably not participate in such a swap for fear of my efforts being pants. Yours is so lovely :)

  2. Thanks very much, Mia! I really lucked out having such a perfect book as the base, as looking at the pages helped me figure out what I wanted to do with them.
