The Second Mini book


I am going to make this short and sweet, just like the book I am going to show you.  This one is for Ragina.  I am sleepy, so here we go. (Note:  Even though I selected all of them, my phone only sends what is big enough to fit in the file.)

The materials used were Chipboard, white paper bags (sewn with three holes) Sorry I did not do it, but I know of a person who does it and sells them on Ebay and Etsy.  I will have to try it, because I do have a sewing machine.) The entire book was decorated with DCWV Mariposa line.  It seems lately I have gravitated towards DCWV.   I guess I am making up for loss time with this brand.  I am normally not a coral girl, but I wanted to try something new and different, and I am starting to like coral.  I will tell you one thing:  Nothing will ever take me away from my pink.  I am a pink girl to the day I die, LOL.  After all, it does go with my skin color.  I bond the album with three notebook rings.

This tag you see above, I distressed with Tim Holtz's distress ink Rusty Hinge, and what you see here is part of paper (I have three more tags like this.  I added the ribbon

I fussy cut out the birdcage, and placed it on pop dots.   The tag you see in the background, I used a regular bought tag, glimmer misted it in three different colors and used a tag that came as part of whole 12 x12 paper page.  What you do not see is another tag under it, and I used a brad to hold it together.  my partner can use it to hold a small wallet-size picture or journal with it.   You can also see the three rings.

 This is the tag up close.

And this is the tag underneath the first one.  The whole page that I used on all the tags has a lot of bling to it.  You cannot tell by the picture.

This is a frame from something I received a long time ago, but I was not able to place it anywhere until now.  Again the tip is to use leftovers or things you cannot use yourself.

With this page, I decided to do a little Cricuting (if there is such a term) This means I pulled out one of my Cricut machines and Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More Cartridge for this one.   I made a library pocket, and the little owl came from the sticker pack from the dollar bin at Joanne's.  decorated it with pearls from Recollections.  I got it when I was frantically seeking the Natural 8 x8 paper (ending up with the 12x12).  I added it at the last minute.

   This is the back cover (the front did not make the cut (my phone's fault).  I distressed the muslin (from the same piece as the one in the other mini book)

Well that is it.  I hope enjoyed seeing my album.  I am getting sleepy, so I will show you the last one later.  Good Night.  Until tomorrow.
