Create...

I've been busy playing and sewing in the last week. I've been wanting to create a mini-book since.... FOREVER! And I have finally knuckled down to give it a go! LOL! So be kind! hee hee...

My subject was naturally "US"...!

{Us}


Of course being ever ambitious..! LOL!! I decided I would make this mini-book out of calico.


Pages 2 and 3...
4 and 5...
6 and 7...Just a simple little book, but I used heaps of techniques such as stamping, stitching and glimmer misting! And a few current favourites as well, such as the banner.

This was quite liberating in a way. Using up some more of my stash and getting to create something fun too! I'm going to journal our current favourite things in the spaces I've left available. Thanks for looking..xx
