I have been on a mini book crazy lately. First with Kaylie’s 4th Birthday Book and now one for the 4th of July, and I have others planned!
I did not take to many photos at the 4th… too busy falling asleep on the front of the boat while laying out! So when I came across a mini book kit for $1 at Michaels I knew that it would work perfectly. This is similar to what I got.
I first started by painting all chip board pieces- red, white and blue, of course! I added some lettering that I cut out with my Cricut and some rub-ons from SU! Then I sponged all pieces with Sahara Sand classic ink from SU! to distress the book a bit. (I liked it on the White pieces the most- not as impressive on the red & blue)
I used Maggie Holmes’ photoshop actions to edit my photos. I love her actions because they are so easy to use and have a great outcome.
Then assembly, emblishments, and journaling!
