A Tilda Mini Book

Happy Tuesday to you all,

Hope you are all having a great day - I've been shopping this morning with my lovely daughter and we spent loads of money!! Ane yes, definitely some on crafty stash - I also bought a new cross stitch design as well, haven't done any of that for ages.

I have a little mini book to show you today, which I made for the Midweek Magnolias challenge (which closes today, so I better get a move on!)  Here's the finished project ...

The challenge this week is 'The Colour Blue' - not a colour I normally choose, but have loved playing with all the different shades of blue papers and embellishments.  This is the front cover of the book and is cut using a scalloped circle die and has a 'Tilda with Daffodil' image stamped, coloured with my Promarkers and cut out.  I also added the lettering to spell our her name and some little flower embellishments with a heart charm.

The second page is cut from acetate using a Labels One die and has a few Doohickey Doily Flowers which have been coloured with my Promarkers.  I coloured both sides and added buttons, pearls and adhesive gems to the centres.

The third page is cut using an Eyelet Square die and has 'Tilda with Bunny' (also coloured with Promarkers) sat in front of a little stamped postcard.

The reverse of the third page has a quote stamped on a Doohickey Scalloped tag which has been inked around the edges with 'Broken China' distress ink and a little Doohickey dragonfly.  The last page is cut using a Labels Seventeen die and has one of my favourite quotes stamped on a Doohickey Dream Tag, which is also inked with the same distress ink.  I have also added a Doohickey Heart Swirl behind the tag too. The whole book is tied together with two pieces of blue satin ribbon.

I would also like to enter this project into the Magnolia Down Under challenge which is to use 'Acetate'.

Hope you like it - enjoy the rest of your day.
Hugz, Jan xx
