So it was a real treat to think up this Mini Book that I want to offer as a prize at a local craft group , in my area.
I decided to try use various types of craft things to make each page. And I liked the idea of the shape, having not done an Octangle one before - I used a Glitter Girls embossing board for the shape of the pages.
This first photos is the book complete, showing the front page - I used a shaped 3D sheet of an elegant lady and a Marianne Floral Cutting die for the embellshment.
I used Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder on it, which gives a lovely sheen in the light.
The only time I like rubber stamping is when I use the various heat embossing powders I own.
I used an Embossing folder to decorate the base card on this page.
This topper is from a Debbi Moore craft mag. Just the right size for the various layers and an embossed butterfly sticker to finish.
Again I used an Embossing folder to decorate the base card on this page
I realised I hadnt used a Peel Off in ages, and found this great glossy bodice PO in my stash
You can actually use threads on this PO, but I decided to use it with one of the lovely backing papers in my stash, I then added ribbon, which adds a lovely bit of texture on the bodice.
The flowers were also part of the PO sheet and I used a Memory Box swirl cutting die with those flowers.
Its a detailed patterned bird topper, and I used some lovely pattered card and paper from my stash with a Marianne Floral Cutting die to make the embellishment
One of the reasons I got into Cutting Machines, is to be able to make my own lovely embellishments, and I do like how subtle this page turned out
I like projects like this as a Keepsake, something a little different for someone to enjoy for a while. And of course a few days of creative fun for me in making it.
