I took some artistic license, and mashed em up with Everyday Enchantment DSP. I cut and pieced and layered (much as i would when making a quilt, right?!!), and turned them into this minibook.
Here's the front. The 'Memories' die cut wraps from the front to the back cover.
It makes a cute little spot to fill in the occasion for the minibook.
Here's the long lost stash! Did you buy these? did you use them?! They're nice, thick, sturdy & pretty.
The base of the minibook is made up of only one 8.5" x 11" sheet of patterned paper!!!
I got the minibook base tutorial from Sandy's Space. She lays out the base very nicely.
Here's how it looked with just the one-sheet base, a small scrap of paper to cover the spine, and a piece of ribbon glued into the spine. It's nice all by itself.
Here are all the insides...
The 'friend' word art and quote were part of a large die cut that I cut up to place in a mini fashion.
Same with the 24/7. I left the 24 hanging off the side, and colored the exposed backside with a Stampin' Write Marker in Marina Mist.
I made a little tiny banner with leftover flower punches and butterflies! More layering with paper, ribbons, and an abandoned Designer Frame window.
The little banner was easy-to-do, just pierced holes into die cuts on a Mat Pack, and strung them together with a needle and Linen Thread. I'm going to try this on a large scale too!
Here's the finished product. To keep it uniform, I used only green and blue mats, alternating them on every other page, and tried to put a splash of Calypso Coral or Poppy Parade on each page to carry through the theme. But all in all, this came together with just a few scraps of paper, and the Butterflies Embosslits.
Best of all, this is my second project made with my Travel Stash! Just a few supplies in a 12x12 box. You can read about my little traveling supply box here.
Here's the challenge...Friday Mashup has great themes that engage papercrafters, with a great variety! Go give it a try!
Have a blessed & creative day! Erika.
