All Booked Up

It's release time at Papertrey Ink again! My favorite time of month. So lucky it comes around 12 times a year. This month, there's a new set that is very close to my bibliophile heart. It's called All Booked Up and has what seems like a gazillion options for book related quotes, sentiments, images, and more crafty goodness. I had a lot of fun playing with it and thinking of the fun things I can send to all my bookish friends.

For tonight, I put together a little gift set for the book lover. First of all, it comes packaged in little sleeves like a Hershey candy bar.

Look closely and you'll see one of my new favorite techniques using the Impression Plates. Impress only half of your paper and use a score board (the new Martha Stewart one rocks) to help hide the impression left by the edge of the plate. I cannot stop doing this, love it.

Inside is a library pocket full of book plates, labels, and a book mark. Talk about putting your dies to use.

Here's a close up of everything that was tucked into the pocket. Three each of the labels and book plates. Nice little gift, no?
