Floral Mini Book and a Craft Meet

Mini Book
           I am on a stamping spree and made more stamped flowers and leaves!
 I used some of the gorgeous marbled papers my crafty friend Mary  had gifted me to make the  gold embossed leaves using stamps from the Winnie and Walter In Bloom Elsa's Flora set.
Mini Book
            To keep the flowers company, I added a glass domed butterfly handmade  following this tutorial : Glass Cabochon tutorial . 
           Added little islands of sparkling chunky  glitter and tiny pink hearts sequins at places for a bit of texturing and sparkle!
Mini Book
          This mini book was made by recycling a cardboard box , measures just 3.5 x 3.5 inches and has  16 pages you can write  on or add photos to and 7 pockets to hold tags and is similar to my mixed media mini book shared earlier.

Mini Book
         In this mini  I stamped Winnie and Walter leaves randomly on the inner pages .The tags were cut using Poppy Stamps dies from pink pearl card stock and inked for a splotchy look!
          And here is my mini book and matching card.

  30. Oh, I SO love your mini book! It is very pretty, practical and I love that you used recycled materials. That butterfly is stunning; so are your flowers and bow.

    How nice to have a craft date with friends. I had a mother and three daughters over yesterday and we coloured. My friend is a busy mom of five so sitting and colouring for two hours was a rare treat for her.

So wonderful that you were able to spend so much time crafting with your friends. That is indeed the best. And always the perfect motivation to clean!
