Create free minibook.

I recently completed this minibook via Crafty Templates website on the Create Free class. It was a 10 day class using 7 pictures and making a minibook with Leonora. I love her blog and site because she has quirky kits she sells along with ribbon and materials u dont find in ''normal'' shop. She has a quirky style of creating and has some fabulous ideas to make gr8 LOs and minibook pages. I did my minibook using 7 Hipstamatic pictures I took in Sheffield earlier this summer. The class use rubons, coloured paper, fabrics, ribbons, punches etc to make the pages and u got a PDF every day to complete ur designs. I learned loads of new ideas and would highly recommend her classes if you get the chance to take part.

This is the first page opposite a picture of the park. I used Sassafrass Lass papers and stickers, the bird is part of Tim Holtz sizzix die and the tape is one from Leonora's kits.
 This is a hideous picture of my friend Luke, what a twinkle. But he does love the horrible ones, says he feels less boring.!!!!!

Each picture os followed by a collaged page made up of a 4 x 4 card piece in kraft decorated with papers, stickers, ribbon etc. I used these Maya Road labels instead of transparencies as I didnt have any and wrote behind them. I can read through them but sorry u cant as the writin isnt clear enough via the computer.
 Another photo and collage page, this time I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and the heart from a Tim Holtz die.

 I think this page of the carousel is one of my faves. We used spray ink, paper, cut out stars, twine and a punched border and hanging piece. By the way I did write an 'e' in between the s and l to spell carousel correctly.
 I also love how this page turned out with the pink from the roses and the gems, stickers and papers.
 This cool bow was so simple and clever. Cut a piece of vintage lace and tie another piece of thin ribbon around the middle to make a bow shape,
 This was Tref playing on his ipod, I like the colours and the papers.

This is the inside back pages which I might add something else to, but at the mo I'm sleeping on it.
