Hi everybody, the week has flown by again and it's Saturday already. The birds have been singing outside for hours, tried to ignore them, as I wanted to sleep in a bit, but they just didn't care. Lately a magpie has been visiting my balcony every day, which is strange, as they are usually very shy, but she hops about there every day and seems to be enjoying it. I think she has a good view of the birds in the trees while sitting there....
Yesterday I finished the fourth mini book for Lenna's swap, so next week they can be posted - poor me, another trip to that post office!
Here I have bound the pages using my BIA. I used paper from the Basic Grey *Capella* collection. Some of the pages have been stamped with flourishes, some of which I have embellished with liquid pearls. The covers have been covered with some gold satin.
This time I have made I maze book from one sheet of 12x12 paper. The lovely paper is *herne* from 7 Gypsies. If you want to make a maze book, just google it, and you will find plenty videos and explanations. Maze books always have lots of pockets, where you can put tags or photos. I have put a mini tag into each pocket, and decorated with butterflies, flowers, feathers, buttons etc.
This little album has also been made from one sheet of 12x12 paper, this time a lovely 2 sided paper from Kaisercraft. I cut in in half, and then each half into three pieces measuring 6x4. These pieces were then folded to form the pages. I arranged the pages so that two with the same pattern always faced each other, scored them in the middle, punched three small holes along the centre line and sewed them together with string, very quick and easy. I decorated the book with flowers and butterflies again. I have left the darker pages emty, so that the recipient will have space to pop in some photos or whatever, and tried to decorate the flourishes on the cream coloured sides.
It was great fun making all the little books, now I am going to start on one for another swap, but a bit larger this time.
Have a great weekend, and thanks a lot for stopping by. Look after yourselves!
