Hi and welcome to my blog today. I am sharing another new idea for a mini book that i made with tags inside to hold the pictures and journaling. This sweet book is for my grand daughter to put all of her closest family pictures in so that my daughter can teach her about everyone even though we don't live close by. I am a huge Ancestry junkie and I want to make sure that my family knows all about their families and the people in them.
The die set that i am highlighting today is called:
Grateful, Thankful, Blessed 3D Layering Etched Die and is one of the beautiful
dies available in the Newest Mini Book dies by Becca Feeken.
This set has lots of amazing little bits and i used the solid tag to make all my staggered tags in my book and then decorated them with the basket of flowers and the sentiment part. This would also be a fun die to layer with in the front of one of the 3D Vignettes base dies.
So to use this larger die a little differently i turned it on it's side and used it for the front of my book. I used a subtle pink cardstock to cut and emboss it and then added a wood sentiment and some gorgeous flowers that i had in my stash. Of course you can make them too with one of Becca's flower dies but i had to do this quick so i used ready made. For the closure on the front i used the binding edge die and cut a base to make it more substantial. It closes in the back with a piece of velcro.
And here you can see a better view of the inside of the book. Each of the tags that i made are staggered in height so that you can see the tags with the pictures once i take them and put them in. My daughter is visiting in a couple weeks time and then i can finish the book for her to take back with her.
I hoped that you liked my newest idea and be sure and stop back next week for an Easter idea that i just finished using envelopes. You are going to love that one...
Have a wonderful day!
