I have a mini book to share with you today. This one is 4" x 4" and uses the Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue Pack. I started with two pieces of craft chipboard as my cover base and adhered a piece of Webster's Pages to the front cover with a piece of Pale Plum inside. For the back cover I used Pale Plum on the inside and Perfect Plum on the outside.
Next, I used the Marianne Design Creatables Birdcage die with a piece of Shimmery White paper and ran it through the Big Shot. I sponged the birdcage with Brilliance Pearlescent Beige and added a Kaiser Opaline Pearl in Black to resemble a knob. The bird was stamped in StazOn Black and sponged with Brilliant Blue and cut out. I knew I wanted some leaves entwined in the birdcage so I pulled out the Sizzix Flowers, Branches & Leaves Set with Mellow Moss paper.
The inside covers and back were decorated using the Memory Box Vintage Peony stamp. The bird is from SU's Carte Postale set.
I used my Zutter Bind-it-All to bind my little book using a 1/2" antique silver owire. All the pages are cream and I found in my stash some Tim Holtz Idea-ology metal page corners in antique nickel. I think they add a nice touch. A piece of 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Orchid was tied to the binder with a vanilla pearl bauble.
So have you used your Zutter Bind-it-All lately? I just love mine and I'm glad I took the plunge and purchased it a year ago.
The inside cover with the Memory Box Peony stamp.
Back cover in Perfect Plum.
I hope you have a great weekend! They are delivering my new Tempur-Pedic bed today so if all things go as planned, I may never get out of bed again!
