Lift Bridge Cards and Crafts

Michigan's Deb Charlesworth of Lift Bridge Cards and Crafts is an excellent stamper and bookbinder. I've known Deb for quite a while via blogland and always learn something new from her posts. (Deb's husband, by the way, loves to quill! How about that - a partner who is also into paper-y things?)

Handmade Book

Deb enjoys designing useful, blank books and recently shared pictures of this aqua beauty. It would be the perfect place to record memories from a seaside vacation or honeymoon. Because of the many pockets, CDs of trip photos could be included, along with printed pics, ticket stubs, and other mementos. The stamped foam core board cover has a special niche for shells and a even a little fish charm.

Handmade Book

Deb stitched the binding with waxed linen thread over ribbon.

Handmade Book

Because she is an engineer by profession, you can be sure everything Deb does is well-organized. Lucky for us, she has written detailed posts over the past month or so on how best to use digital tools to organize craft supplies. Find the first in the series here with links to the next three posts. And if you're interested in getting started in stamping and/or bookbinding, Deb has compiled lots of helpful tips.

She's also on Etsy.

Beautiful book! I wish I were as dexterous. When I try to make something this complex, it ends up look as though a 4 year old has made it! :)
