I’m working on some Skinny book covers which mean a lot to me, so I tried all kinds and I think I finally have a prototype…  lots of cutting involved, though cos I have to do 38.  Just cut some covers and checked the back ones against some of the pages I’ve been sent, only to find that they’re oversized, so my covers don’t work – agggghhhh!!  I can either check 38x38 pages or cut more covers a little larger, but I’ve run out of the thicker card I was using… disaster and time’s running out.

Here’s one that went wrong :(

Oh my goodness - what a mammoth task - can you trim the oversized pages? They should have a blank space around the art work - or are there too many.

What a night mare.

Love the one that 'went wrong'

Thinking of you. There is so much pressure on you when you are doing such an enormous task.

I hate that, when things dont go as 'planned' but Im sure youll find a way....its a shame that this one isnt viable...cant you back it on to black card/paper and then onto to the bigger covers or does that sound a bit naff....

A mahousive task then ... I have stared at this ... enlarged it ... suctioned my nose on the monitor and looked really really hard ... How has it gone wrong exactly ... looks fabulous to me!


Hi Cath - this looks just fine to me - I love it!!
Sorry to see that no-one has shown any interest in taking on the Ugly Card - will you be posting some photos of it on your blog?
