It was my friend's 60th birthday this weekend, so I made her a mini book to keep all her photos of the big day in!
I used card blanks as the base of the mini book, and glued 8 back to back to give 16 pages.
I then took two more cards, laid them side by side and then moved them together so they overlapped. I adhered the overlapping sides together, and then scored a second fold at each side. I adhered my pile of cards to the middle, and wrapped the two sides around to form the cover.
I decorated each of the pages with the gorgeous papers in the GCD 'Paris Nights' collection. I especially love the flocked papers, and I knew my friend would too.
I finished it off with some Pebbles border stickers (from the Mr&Mrs collection, I think), some Thickers and some black satin ribbon.
I was very pleased with how it turned out, and I think my friend was too :D
*In other scrappy news, I made it through to the first round of the Practical Scrappers layout competition. Making it through to the second round depends on the number of votes my layout gets - it's up on the Practical Scrappers blog, in Group 3, and voting is today only, so fingers crossed! I'll find out next weekend if I got enough votes to go through to the next round...
