On Board Bitty Book in Petals & Paisley

Girls just gotta' have fun! This On-Board Bitty Book from Stampin' Up! mini catalog is the project designed and taught by moi at the Demonstrators Retreat last weekend. Of course we just had to use fun new products out of the Spring Mini Catalog such as the beautiful Petals and Paisley double-sided Designer Papers, Little Reminders Accents and Elements, the Round Tab punch and Office Accoutrement stamp set! This is the slipcase for the mini album which holds 3"x3" pictures or images. The outside slipcase comes unassembled (flat) which makes it easy to decorate then assemble with a little Sticky Strip™ on the flaps. Easy-peasy! The stripe paper is the opposite side of the rose paper shown covering the album. A "stitched" (with the Signo gel pen and paper-piercing tools) layer of Certainly Celery on the front forms the foundation for embellishing with the pink bracket from Little Reminders (these are self-adhesive die cuts!), "original" stamp in Old Olive and the two flowers stamped, cut out and layered with Little Reminders, added to the center. The paler blue on the tab is also from L.R. as is the "sweet". A small knot of turquoise grosgrain ribbon adds the finishing touch to the composition.

The album which slips inside holds ten page protectors for 20 pictures or images. The front and back are covered with this gorgeous multicolored floral and paisley print and the inside is covered with the olive polka dot, which is the reverse side of the same paper. The front is accented with a narrow strip of the stripe (say that fast 3 times!) and a wider piece of the polka dot. On the olive dot are several self-adhesive die cuts (flowers and rectangle), again from the Little Reminders Accents and Elements (these come in the CUTEST tin, which just begs to be decorated! (hint, hint!)
Wouldn't this be the sweetest gift for Mother's Day or a special friend's birthday or special occasion? It is also a great size to hold school pictures too! There are many great uses for these little books!

Come back soon! I'll have some more projects to share with you! Have a good day!
