Mini Board Book

A few weeks ago some stunning papers arrived in the store, straight from Creative Imaginations. The papers are baby themed but are so versatile that they can work for any kind of project. I fell in love with the bohemian feel of the papers...very aged and vintage with these bold bright colors. Well I just couldn't help myself...I went home with paper from the entire line! Ah, the joys of working in a scrapbook store!! I then picked up a little board book, which we sell in a variety of sizes. They're great little books that are perfect for quick projects. Super easy to cover (this size is 5" x 5") and heavy weight enough that you can sand the edges for a perfect finish.
I decided to pair this fab new paper with a board book for a sweet kid-themed book! This was also a fun experiment in seeing just how many patterns I could mix! :-)
The line also came with a 12x12 sheet of cardstock weight stickers. Page 2/3 sported a cute owl and decorative circle images. And here are two sweet tags...I just added a button and some twine.
On these pages I added some American Crafts foam letters along with another sticker. How about that owl image? It's printed right on the paper. I wouldn't even consider covering it up...it's that fabulous! Ms. Owl deserved a page all to herself!
This is the boy-themed paper, complete with helicopters and another paper that showcases whales. Only added some more foam letters and a sticker for these pages.
Here are the last two pages...I've only added a few cardstock sticker tabs, and a few rhinestones for just a hint of bling. Hope you enjoyed today's non-card project! I'm off to work this afternoon along with a class later tonight..We'll be making the cute crab card that I shared on Monday - yeah!!
