Emma- The House that Love Built

Today we have another altered Creative Imaginations project from Emma. She decorated this funky little house with papers from the 7 Gypsies Zanzibar line. We love the funky layers on the outside of the book and the colorful simplicity on the inside.

"The House that Love Built"
by Emma Trout

House mini book: Creative Imaginations
Patterned papers: 7 Gypsies Zanzibar range,
Bazzill cardstock scraps
American Crafts rub-ons (Purkey), Making Memories mini rub-ons.
Ribbons, Dymo, a button, gems.

Paint the edges of the mini book with black acrylic paint and leave to dry.
Cut patterned paper into rectangles, chimney shapes and roof shapes slightly smaller than the measurements of the mini book so that when they are applied to the book it leaves a small black edge of the paint showing.
I added a tag in between each section by folding the bottom edge of the tag and glueing that folded section to the mini book. The patterned paper was then added on top of this to cover the fold. Decorate each section with photos, journaling and 7 gypsies’ stickers.
Cover the front with patterned paper as before and add a title made with American Crafts and Making Memories rub-ons and Dymo. I also added ribbons, gems, a button, a patterned paper heart and spirals of thin strips of Bazzill.
