Summer 2011 Mini Book

For those of you who haven't heard, sadly, there was a fire at the Papermaze premises last week. You can read about it on their blog here.
Thankfully no ones was hurt, but due to the loss of stock, the website and shop are closed whilst they get themselves sorted.

The blog is still running though.
I made this mini recently using the Accent Cards which come in a 12x12 sheet from Crate Paper - Emma's Shoppe. You can see it on the blog here.

I've used 2 sheets of this paper and cut the cards up and backed them up with the doubles. The sheets are double sided, this this way you get to see both sides and it makes the mini book feel sturdier.

This is a gift for my neice Millie after she came to stay with us for a few days in August.

I love that these cards offer plenty of space for journaling.

But not too much that you feel you need to write essays.

Ans space for photos too.

And sweet picture cards.

I teamed this paper up with the alpha sticker sheet that matches. Giving lots of alphas and cute stickers too. The perfect ingredients to make a quick mini book.

Thanks for stopping by xxx
