hey everyone! hope you are doing well!
today was a beautiful day here in seattle. i'm kinda bummed i didn't get out and do something fun. i did get some scrapbooking done, photos uploaded and am finally ready to share some new projects.
i have been cranking out the mini books out lately. i have four different ones to share over the next week so let's get started!
i snapped a photo of all of my favorite books. i love seeing my favorites all in one photo like that. so cool. you can see the new books that i will be sharing here on the blog in the photo!
i couldn't decide which book i wanted to share first! i love them all. but i decided on the one i finished up this morn. i named it "decor obsessed". i have been wanting to make a book like this for a looooong time. i am always saving home decor photos that i come across and that inspire me on my pc. when we get our next place, i finally want to decorate it the way i have always dreamed of. i can not freakin' wait! so i have been collecting all of these super inspiring photos and wanted a home for all of them in one place. something i can take with me even, when we start purchasing things for our new place. it will be cool to have it in the stores with me and be able to look at my ideas and what i want and see if something i am thinking of buying fits in with my theme.
anyway, i am glad all of these wonderful little photos are all in one place now. just about all of the product i used for this mini is from studio calico. i love this line. it suited the book perfectly. this was my first order from studio calico. and it gotta say....i am hooked! i love the papers, stickers...the woodgrain alphas!!!! all of it. i am a huge fan now.
my covers and some of the inside pages are adhered to 4x6 kraft chipboard. i love the way it adds some thickness to the book. i use chipboard and sometimes even cork throughout my mini's for that affect.
gosh i love those papers. to get the title on my sticker i used for this cover, (i don't have a typewriter....yet. it's on my thrifting list!), i simply printed out what i wanted it to say on cardstock. then lined up my sticker on top and ran it through the printer again,then cut it out and glued it to my cover. a typewriter would make this whole process so much simpler for me so i am on a serious hunt for one. i would do all of my journaling on a typewriter if i had one. if you haven't noticed, i only use one font. teletype. i rarely stray from that font. it just works for me. and i like the unity it gives throughout my work and albums.
gosh i love it! adorableness. little books are my absolute favorite thing to make!
i do have two layouts to share before i go. stop by tomorrow and check out my "adventures in seattle" mini book! have a great night.
