Mini books and journals

My friend Paige showed me how to make these lovely little mini books a few weeks ago and since then i have been on a roll! I have made three with ideas for lots more! I used up some scraps, primas and gems and a circle and scallop punch for embellishments.






They are so quick to make and make lovely presents. A good way to use up all your scraps aswell!

I also bought this lovely Cath Kidson journal from Waterstones the other day. My intention was to rip the pages out to use for my LO's but the book is so pretty i cant bear to do it!!

Please take a look at the post below with my sneak peeks for the next Scrapbook Apprentice. I am bottom in the voting and with only two days to go i am not liking my chances!! So if you want to pop over and vote for me (sam) you can use the link on the right!!!! Thanks x
