Square Mini Book

I enjoyed doing a mini book recently, so decided to do another, a Square one this time

This is the front of the book, I used a 3D pink floral design with Marianne circular frame Die. I embossed the layer on this die too.
Loved the textured look to this first page, went with bright pinks , yet it still looks subtle

This page was made using a Debbie Moore design from one of her craft mags.
I love the artwork, very elegant.
Going with the classy black look, I used a lot of black in this card.  I used a Creelies floral Cutting die for the flower embellishment.

I love animals, so wanted to include a pet design in this mini book
The topper, is a 3D design I have had for a while, those cats are so cute.

I used a fancy floral topper for the embellishment with a Memory Box swirl Die

I focused on the lilac in with this page

I wanted to include a Rubber Stamped page and I used a free stamp I got with a craft mag  to make this page
I embossed with copper glittered embossing powder, and kept with this rustic bronze look as much as possible.

Again used a Memory Box swirl die with a bow, for the embellishment
I wanted a Peel Off page too, though not got so many left in my stash of these

I made this with a handbag peel off, there is some detail on the design, but its a little lost as I used a very detailed backing paper with the Peel Off
A little bit of embossing on this page. And used a Marianne Floral cutting die to make the embellishment
I have had some lovely tea pot toppers in my stash for a while, and used one to make this page
Lovely patterns in the tea pot, so I focused on the blue and silver tones for this page

I used a Marianne frame die too

Really enjoyed making this mini book.  I ended up giving it away as a prize at my Knitting Group and had a lot of interest in how it was made :D
