Proud to be an American Mini Book

I always put my pictures in wrong so you see the book backwards! Sorry! This is a mini book I made for this next quarter's class. I think it turned out great and I was able to use my new "A Child's Year" Cricut Cartridge, which was fun. I've only shown about half the book here but this gives a good idea of the style and different shapes of pages. It was great fun to make and it is always fun to work with different sizes and shapes of chipboard which were cut out using our die cut machine at work. The sheet music cover is from an old music book I purchased at our local DI and the papers used on the inside are from The Paper Company patriotic line. I also mixed in a BoBunny dots paper and a sheet of cardstock stickers from Creative Imaginations. For one of the pages I took a chipboard rectangle and painted it with dk. brown, then used the product called Weathered Wood by DecoArt. After letting that dry for an hour I put a top coat of cream colored paint. It really works for this style of mini book. I also used my Sizzix die with the little door flaps. Fun, fun, fun! Anyway, I will be teaching this class in June at Heartland Paper in Utah. If you are interested in the kit we are starting to mail kits this quarter and you are welcome to call starting March 9th to reserve yourself one - 801-294-7166.
