a Cut at Home Design Team Project
Thank you all for your interest!
Today's mini is made from a pre-made journal designed by Frank Garcia and sold by Prima. I've used Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy Collection on the six two page spreads.
I've used a lot of fussy cut flowers and elements from the paper line for decoration. The spine is covered in three pieces of black lace from The Piece by Piece. I used Diamond Stickles to accent the baby's breath on the front and back of the mini.
The mini measures 5.5" x 7.5" with six chipboard pages.
Each set of paper co-ordinates with designer paper, pockets, tuck ins or unders and black mats stamped with stamps from the collection.
There is an abundance of places to adhere photos and journal spots. Here I've created a pocket on the left with a matching belly band on the right and added a top and bottom stopper to keep mats and photos from sliding out of the mini.
Check the supply list at the bottom of this post for a complete list of the Spellbinders, Sizzix and Tattered Lace dies I've used.
On video I'll walk you through each page sharing what the inserts look like and also tips and ideas I used to create the pages.
I love the look of these pages. They were created by fussy cutting the sentiment strip and flower spray from the top of one of the collections 12"x12" papers. By gluing the sides and middle down I've created a belly band and open pocket for the mats and many extra photos to be tucked in.
The chalk ink on the black mat stamped with the Collection's stamps just gives a pop. Of course once the photos are placed many of the stamped images will be reduced or eliminated but they are nice until the photos glued down.
The vertical tuck in pocket on the right was created by putting a small hole in the top and bottom and then cutting a slit with my Kraft knife to join them. Removing just a sliver of the paper leaves a nice way to slip the mat under the paper and allowing just enough to peek out for removal.
Come join me on today's video, there are lots more photos to inspire you to find a pre-made mini and decorate it yourself.
