An Elegant Bookstand for Elegant Books

Filed under Collage Sheets, Miniatures, Regency Era, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Written Memories Kit

Those sweet books that Rhonda Thomas made last month have gotten even better! There’s a new bookstand to fit a grouping of those books (and a matching new collage sheet)!

I’ll let Rhonda explain:

In my last post, Hidden Memories, I shared some matchbox books I created with the Written Memories Kit. Well now there is a gorgeous bookstand that you can create to hold the books along with a Desktop Bookstand Collage Sheet with several options for decorating.

The Desktop Bookstand Collage Sheet is genius. Trim out the design you like and it fits onto the Desktop Book Stand perfectly! There is even a matching “drawer” to add to the front. Doesn’t get any easier then this.

For most projects, there are two items that I always rely on. The first is a small brown ink pad. I cannot stand white edges on my images and usually do a run along the edges with a brown ink pad. If not brown, I choose a color that matches the image. But brown is great for “aging” on this project.

I decided to use another copy of the same design from the collage sheet to line the inside of the bookstand. The nice thing is that you can purchase a digital download of all of the collage sheets at Alpha Stamps and print up as many copies as you like for your personal use.

I wanted to add some trim to the edges of the bookstand. Once again, my brown ink came in hadny to make the White Dresden Border Set into a matching color. I used the loop design and trimmed the loops off to make it one small piece of trim.

Beautiful work, Rhonda! A few more supplies are shown below; see everything Rhonda used to make An Elegant Bookstand for Elegant Books in the Supply List. And see tutorial pics and more details on Rhonda’s blog post.

Be sure to come back as there’s an even smaller new bookstand and matching collage sheet! Plus a sale on all Rhonda’s supplies from both the books and the stand!
