SUMMER BOOK PAGES PART II





It's been a while since i told you about my Summer mini book. The thing is, i had some kind of a change of heart about the design of the album. One thing i learned: i am not much of a messy, free style scrapbooker. i love patterned paper, clean layouts with pretty embellishments. So i redesigned the mini albums pages entirely, and i love the look of it!


Each prompt got two pages, not side by side but back to back. Not very logical, but i liked it that way, feels more like a real book. Every page as a A side made of patterned paper and a B side made of one of the book page. They're all stitched all around (which took foreeeever to do, since i don't own a sewing machine!), and with a cute doily on a side (i got the idea from Carrie lovely mini). The papers are all different and from various collections: some old sassafras (i'm still hoarding some pieces ^^), american crafts, echo park, studio calico... but look quite awesome all together! 
I'll share the next pages here soon and tell you more about the embellishments i used!
