Welcome to my world, sometimes a little hectic but a fab place to be!

Blooming Marvellous Mini Book

on March 2, 2014

So tomorrow sees the launch of the new Blooming Marvellous paper kit which includes gorgeous paper pads including one with toppers & mini postcards plus another pad of black outline images that can be used for monochrome or colouring. Then there are the two background pads which are just stunning! Here’s another little something I made using them

So I got out a heart shaped mini book out that I’ve had in my stash for years and got decorating, first I covered the chipboard covers with background papers and used a versa mark ink with gold embossing powder to cover the edges

Next I got out my Scattered Straw Distress Ink and edged the inner pages before over stamping in the same ink with a gorgeous distress style stamp from inkadinkado. I also cut some of the mini postcards and an envelope from the pads and stamped sentiments onto them before attaching to the pages. I love the idea of the little Notes and Memories pages for adding a little journaling.

Once I’d put the book together the scattered straw sentiments had dried and were a little pale for my liking so I over stamped with black stazon to create a shadow effect.

I thought this book would look great with some mini photos printed from a trip or special occasion so here’s the finished design….
