Mini Book

Hello and happy Tuesday to you : )

Thought I would share a mini book I made. My husband and I stopped at AC Moore last week on our way home from the doctor. I needed to be cheered up after finding out I have yet another herniation in my neck. Not good news but it was a fun shopping trip!

I never really bought 7 Gypsies stuff before. I went looking for the Tim Holtz Texture plates. I can't seem to get my hands on them : ( They had unopened boxes ALL over the place. I was almost going to offer to unload them so I could find what I wanted!

On my way out I saw a display with a mini book hanging off the rack. It must have been created by staff or by the gypsies! This fabulous crystal ball handle jumped out at me. I just fell in love immediately!!!

This is what I did with it. Hope you like it : )

Front Cover

This view really shows off the crystal ball knob and the height of the album

Chipboard Shape covers are by Teresa Collins. I assembled them with my Bind-It-All.
Front and Back covers have Deja Views "Botanical" paper on them. Every inside page edge has ribbon and a decorative floral brad on them by Close To My Heart.
Peek a boo window on inside cover matted on black Deja Views Botanical. I punched the oval shape out (to resemble a window) with my EK Success punch. I added a strip of white "vintagey" floral ribbon on top.

Pink rhinestones in flower centers-so pretty!! Another tag can be tucked away for private journaling inside the black paper strip.

Vertical decorative strip is adhered directly to page so photos must be directly applied over this or just journaling on the page directly would work too!

On this page I made a horizontal pocket with a tag tucked in to journal on. It's finished off with ornate white trim.

Inside back page
All of the inside pages are (4.5x6.5) made with "The Luxury Stack" by DCWV. They have a pearly smooth finish. So elegant!! White organza ribbon is tied to the wires on the outside of the album.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and don't forget, to see a better/bigger view just click on the pictures to enlarge them.
