I am finished with my first mini book. If you can recall a few posts back, I stated that I was in a swap, and I had to finish 3 books. They are a 4x4 book (not so 4x4, more of a 6x6), a pocket mini, and a tag book. Well, here is the pocket mini. I hope my partner PJ will like it. So let me show you around, OK?
I have to love the cover. It is similar to the last cover I made in October, except, I have muslin under the burlap. The whole book was made with the DCWV line, Natural, and this is the first time I have made a book with a whole paper line. I need to to that all the time. It saves money, and the headache of matching. This is my personal opinion on the matter. Anyway, back to the cover. I used the Tim Holtz ribbon collection and added some Recollections peals in the middle of the roses, which are on top of some stretchy lace. I left the cover blank for the user to put whatever she wanted on the cover (if it was a non-scrapbooker I would, and still should of had a book plate on the cover. The front and back covers are mad out of chipboard. the base of the mini book is a paper bag book. I attached the front of paper bag to the cover, and likewise with the back cover in the same style similar to the person on Follow the Paper Trail.
Next page: (Ok, I realize that I cannot show you everything about this album, because in the process of sending , or I did not take a picture of some of my pages, a few pictures got eaten up in cyberspace.)
This is another photo mat, and this time, I used the rose by itself with white pearls from Martha Stewart crafts.
These were some of the highlights of the album. Sorry I did not show you more like last time. I am almost finished with the mini 4x4 (excuse me, mini 6x6) and I will get some good pictures from that one. See you in a few.
