Mini Book Gallery & Great News!

Great work everyone!

I did something a little silly for my second try at this book. I got an idea and got it done but didn't use the absolutely fabulous Penguin Pants stamp sets that were sitting on my craft desk. Therefore, I'll be treating you to a very cool card I made wit
h them after my second sample of the One Little Book.

I started with designer paper this time and adhered some of the pages together to end up with two pockets in the centre in which I put two tea bags. I adhered the outer edges to a piece
of chipboard to make a cover and topped it with a die cut Top Note from my Sizzix. I punched two holes in the bottom and tied them loosely so it stays together as a book.

I added two little envelopes to add sugar or whatnot and adhered them inside. I then printed off "Teas I Love" and some lines on my printer and stamped a great big teapot and there you have it. A great little gift for someone who loves their tea!

Now, for my card - this was a fun one! Granted it was a little hard to take a photo due to the clear front, I think you get the idea! I
used Spooky Spooks and Halloween Hang Ups for this card and made a clear front that is attached with a "faux fence" hinge. I used my arrow punch from SU to make this fence which is very similar to the fence in the Penguin Pants stamp set. The lower piece of green is part of the card itself and the clear cover is just a front attached on the inside. Make sense? Then putting all the great stamps in behind it
make the ghost look like its flying. So much fun!

For Pam's mini album she used the Penguin Pants stamp set called "Altered Labels" inked with Versa Mark and embossed with white embossing powder on pattern paper. For the inside the two sections that are open at the top she cut about a half an inch short then adhered the sides so that a tag can fit inside. The rest of the pages are for pictures and the very last page has a pocket for a gift card. This will make a fun brag book with the bonus of a little gift as well! Instead of a belly band or piece of ribbon to keep this book shut Pam used a giant paper clip to go with the kind of funky industrial look.
