a little bit mini

I saw a tutorial for this little mini on the Crate Paper blog and thought I would give it a go.  I did take pics of the process so I could share what I did too...maybe I'll have time for that little tutorial later in the week.  We just got a new computer and it seems like all of my stuff is discombobulated right now.
I made this mini using my Studio Calico Spencer's kit. Each page is 3x4 and has a pocket where I tucked in OA cards that have journaling on them about our adventure. Right now it only has 3 cards, but I might add more if I have more stuff to say:) Each group of 4 pages is 1 piece of 4x12 paper folded in 3" increments and the pages are sewed together at the end.  I felt like it needed some more stability so I added a little binding.  I tied it up with some black and white twine to keep it closed in the mini book bowl.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

spring time saturday

It finally feels like spring! Nice and sunny but not hot. Yay!
I received my Studio Calico kit yesterday, unpacked it this morning and made a LO and a card...

I used the member scraplift challenge at Studio Calico for the LO of my sweet little one "playing" with her seems like the norm these days for kids to be focused on their devices instead of interacting with each other...everything is from the Spencer's scrapbooking, card or PL kit except the flair camera button, the OA today tab, the you and me sticker, the red alphas from a previous kit and the graph paper from the new graph paper at Studio Calico.

and a graduation card with some scraps using the stamp and twine from Spencer's card kit
