2011 Spring Swap: Katie McElroy

We had great participation for our 15th book swap this time with a theme of "Fits in an Envelope." I look forward to sharing with you the creative entries we had over the next couple of weeks.


The first book is from Katie McElroy. Here's how she describes her offering:


This book is a small, pamphlet-stitched notebook. It's sewn with white linen book thread and has 20 pages (40 front and back) of hand-cut paper. I designed an Art Deco/Art Nouveau motif for its covers, including a chevron pattern on the inner covers. The covers are printed in house on a thick cardstock. It's perfect for on-the-go lists, notes and sketches. At 4.25 x 5.5 inches, it's very portable and can easily fit into a purse or bag. It would be great as a gift or just for everyday note-jotting.


Katie's handmade books and laser-cut cards can be found in her shop here.
