So Girly

Today's project is a mini book from Carole. She is the only female in her house so she wanted to make a girly album about herself.

So Girly

Mini book: Jenny by Creative Imaginations
Crystal book knob: 7 Gypsies
Paper: Creative Imaginations
Stickers: Creative Imaginations
Glitter stickers: Making Memories
Flowers: Imaginisce
Brads: Making Memories and Imaginisce
Stickers alphabet: Making Memories
Ribbon tape: 7 Gypsies
Jewels: Carolee’s
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz collection) and Catslife Press
Black ink : Versafine
Acrylic paint
Crop A Dile

Paint all of the edges of the mini book in black. Let it dry completely. Using the mini book as a template, cut a heart out of cardstock that is smaller than each page. Then, use this piece as a guide for the rest of the pages of the book.
Put a piece of ribbon tape on the binding.
Use brads in the middle of the flowers on the cover page. Adhere them.
With the crop a dile, make a hole in the cover and affix the crystal book knob. Decorate the edge with stickers and jewels.
Stick all other pages with strong glue and decorate it with stickers, glitter stickers, and stamps.
