So anyways I was so totally inspired by the class that I made my own mini book using the ideas and techniques we learned. I made this for a girl that we do business with who just had a baby. I made it for her to give to her mother in law. Reason being is that she's super close to her and her mom is not around and this is her first grand baby so I know that she would love to give her something like this but you know how it is when you have a baby who has time to scrapbook. So this she can just put the pics on it and it's all done and ready to give : )
I actually used the packaging from the Vines Divine and the letter stickers because the packaging is much larger so you can fit a 3x5 or 4x6 photo on it no problem. This in one of the inside pages. I made it so the book flips up. For those who might not understand what I'm talking about using the packaging, all the Prima products come in or on packaging that can be reused. They are like a thicker card stock type piece of paper so we put 2 back to back to make it thicker and more sturdy. So to make 3 pages (6 front and back) you need 6 pieces of packaging. Embossed the edges in gold (thanks Cari I love that technique) to make it more like a finished book or one of those old books with the gold leaving on the edges. Makes the packaging look less like packaging.
