Today I have this super fun and easy mini book I made with some coloured card blanks I picked up in Hobbycraft for £1. I chose an orange and pink set and have used 3 blanks from each pack. While I loved the bright colours I wanted to break it up slighly so have used some acrylic paint in Autumnal colours to paint little sections of the pages. I’ve dedicated this mini book to journaling October. Not an October Daily but just a few pages to document theres Autumn firsts I thought. A walk, a new cousy jumper, pumpkins or the first apple pie of the year!
Once the painted pages were dry I’ve used some double sided tape and stuck the blanks back to back. Turning it into a book. I’ve used lots of bits and pieces from the kit to embellish each page. Making obvious pages for photos to be added orlittle spaces for some journaling. I find this makes it so easier when I eventually get around to documenting things. I don’t need to find a lot of time – print the photos, add a little sticker or die cut, journalling and then the page is finished. The memory has been recorded and it’s taken just a few minutes.
The houses are one of my fave Lollipop stamos ever, I think. They’re so sweet! I wanted to use them on each page and initially thought about stamping them inlines similar to a washi would be good but settled on heat embossing with them. I love how they turned out. They add extra texture to the pages along with the Autumn sparkle!
