Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! It´s Sanna Lippert here again and I´m excited to share my second The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit project with you today. For today´s post, I´ve prepared a tiny minibook in bright and happy colours.
This is the finished mini:
The base of this minibook is a premade one by Maya Road. I have been hoarding it, because I love the thick pages and the robust covers. They were in kraft tone in the beginning so I gave them a “treatment” with gesso and yellow paint.
I also treated all the pages in a similar way, but only applied a hue of yellow paint onto the pages.
Both for the cover and the pages inside the book I fussy cut the “Cuckoo Clock” images from the Truly Grateful Paper No. 11 by Pink Paislee and adhered them onto the cover on top of the stamping. The stamps I used for this mini were not in the kit, but from my own stash. Also the small phrase squares in 2×2 inch size that I used throughout the minibook are by Pink Paislee & from the Truly Grateful collection.
I used the squares in whole and also cut into smaller pieces for decoration throughout the minibook.
I also created additional “pages” to fit all the photos into the minibook, by folding the “I am Mom” yellow/blue paper into tiny pages. Throughout the pages I´ve added sentiment stamping which highlights/matches the minibook theme really well. This book is about my knee surgery late May and I wanted to write the story down and collect all the memories together in one place.
I kept the design quite simple, but could not resist adding a few fussy cut elements here and there.
I also added some of the Pink Fresh Studio “Office Hours” chipboard stickers for detail and decoration. I´ve also sneaked in some stenciling on some of the pages. The stencil is from my stencil line collection at STAMPlorations.
