This mini is also made for Nook U, for Library Science class. And of course the assigmnent was to make a mini with a minimum of ten sentences of journaling, something stamped and a soft embellishment of some kind. I made this mini about the love my two children have for each other. I've used a lot of Maya Road on this one, and papers from 7 Gypsies.
This is what I really love about Maya Road minis - they look fabulous layered up like this. And with a few chipboard shapes inside the book it gets quite a lot of air between the pages. I've used one of my brand new Maya Mists for the bird.
I had to squeeze in some Punchinella in a few places in the book too. I haven't used it so much lately. Too bad really, since I like the texture of it a lot.
The swirl is yet another MR-shape. I've painted it with white dabber and put some white Stickles on it. The burgundy velvet ribbon is from Panduro, and I love it! It's so beautiful in real life, self-adhesive and really easy to work with.
Here's my stamped accent - a couple of Basic Grey clearstamps on the chipboard heart, and one of my soft embellishments - the green felt flower beneath the heart.
I'm really happy with how this mini turned out, and I hope It can gain me a few points at least. Well, that's all for now, but I have a few more layouts to show in a day or so.
