The project I'm sharing with you today is the mini book I created at a South West Arty Crafters Group Workshop run by Bernie Simmons - thanks Bernie.
The front of the book (back cover is the same)

The mini book was constructed using envelopes, cardboard (for the front and back covers) and LOTS of sheets of 12 x 12 papers. It was fun to do and being with a group of other crafters was really nice. Despite all starting out with the same materials all our mini books looks very different - it was interesting to see the colour combos and papers that each of us chose and how the finished books looked, quite a rainbow of colour seeing them all together !
I chose to make mine predominantly pink and used some lush papers - apologies but I didn't pay attention to the manufacturers of each paper whilst rummaging through the great selection Bernie had provided for us. As I was thumbing through the paper stack the 'Fabulous' paper and the pink hearts on a black background paper called out my name and inspired the whole theme/colour scheme of my project.
I won't go into a detailed description of the construction method, I'm sure you would be able to find a YouTube vid or other tutorials online explaining how this type of book is made.
My mini book will be stuffed with all things Pink and Fabulous as and when I find them and it will be great to pick up and glance through occasionally to reinforce how FABULOUS my crafting life is - filled with lovely friends, great stash and learning new skills all the time ! In fact I have something newly created so I plan to put a pic of it inside my new book. It's a needle felted brooch that I created during a recent workshop, which was also HUGE fun, and I got to meet the other lovely ladies joining in the fun, plus tea and delish Lemon Polenta Cake ... slurp ! I'll share pix of my brooch at a later date.
Hope you've enjoyed your visit today, let me know what you think of today's project by leaving me a comment - if you have the time. Have a wonderful craft-filled day.
