Fabric Mini Book & a Papermaze Blog Hop

Hello : )

Welcome to my blog if you are coming via the Papermaze's Summer Blog Hop.
You should have come from Karen's blog.

My summer project is this Fabric Summer Mini Book.

I'm really pleased how this has come out.
I bought the actual fabric book years ago but never touched it. So I've finally done something with it using more fabric, felt and lace making lots of pockets to hold the photos of our summer 2012.

I've decorated throughout the book using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Dylusions Mists and Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze too.

All the patterned paper that I've used is from My Minds Eye, Lost and Found Two. It's from the 6x6 pads which were perfect for this project.

The pages have been left blank as we have lots of activities and plans coming up such as my Dad coming from the States in less than 2 weeks : )

I've tried to make the book as colourful as possible.
It's a great way to use up odds and ends and left over embellishments and alpha stickers.

And I've made sure that there is plenty of space for my story telling on each page.

At the back of the book the felt makes another pocket.

Have you made a summer 2012 mini book?
Do you plan to make one?
