I received the Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die #657122, a photo album die by Eileen Hull:
I also just got the new Free Bird 6x6 Paper Line in by Authentique Papers. As soon as I saw the "Blush" themed papers I knew they would make the sweetest mini book. There are four 6x6 designs in this theme and that is just enough paper to make this sweet mini using the Scoreboards XL Die and Sizzix Little Sizzles - 6"x13" Mat Board Pack, 6 Assorted Sheets.
Then I folded the ends of some 4"x 8" tags by American Tag up to make them fit the 6.5" x 4.25" dimensions of the mini album, stapling the folded-up flap to the tag to make a pocket.
I recently got my hands on some of the new Balzer Designs templates for Crafter's Workshop -- the chevrons and geometric feel of the shapes are perfect for the modern feel of the "Blush" paper. I laid the templates over the painted pages and sprayed them with Smooch Spritz in Cashmere, one of the new colors released this summer by Clearsnap.
Then I set to decorating the pages and cover.
On the cover, I sprayed a white paper flower with Smooch Spritz in Cashmere and added it to the cover with a few strips of paper, an adhesive doily diecut, buttons and sticker letters. I spritzed some white floral leaves with Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil and added them under the flower. I also created the 3D roses using wool felt and the Sizzix Flowers, 3D die. I then threaded several ribbons around the spine and tied them in a bow.
I inserted several tags into each of the tag pockets I made, adding ribbons to the pages.
After all was set, I spritzed the entire book with Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil, at a distance of 18" to get a fine mist. This helps pull the colors together and give the book an aged feel.
