Hi everyone! Today I have a little tutorial for a minibook to share. It’s also an example of how you can use many dies for other things than they were intended to. The minibook is for Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge to use a favorite stamp (this awesome new Tim Holtz woodgrain stamp) and for a National Scrapbooking Day challenge to do layering with a negative die cut shape.
Punch holes in the covers and in all the inside paper, I used my crop-a-dile. The cover was embellished with a negative strip and two metallic embellishments. I rubbed cream paint onto both first . The ribbon was dyed with Weathered Wood Distress Stain.
The letters were cut from kraft core cardstock, sanded and then coated with Glossy Accents (I forgot to glue the dot on the ‘i’ in place before taking the photos).
The last page and the inside back cover (love that sentiment).
Tie a lace ribbon to close the album and use rings to bind it.
Thank you for looking!!
