Mini Books - Lois & Kristina

Lois's Mini Book


 I made these mini books for two girls at work who happened to turn 21 years old on the same day.  (Awkward so & sos)  I had quite a good time making them and tried to make them different to reflect their different personalities.
 I enjoyed working out where to put the different photos, paper and embellishments.  It was also different for me working on a small area as I usually scrapbook 12x12 layouts.





 I tried to use different stamps, flowers and bling to make each page a little different from the rest.





 Kristina's Mini Book
I found Kristina's mini book a bit challenging as I have used a 'see through' medium before in this way.
 Because I had not left myself as much time as I should I found it quite frustrating having to work out where to place papers and embellishments so that it showed nicely on the reverse side as well as the side I was working on.
For both albums I sneakily got the recipients to looks at papers I was thinking of using - using a 'ruse' that it was for a present/card I was making for my niece of the same age.










I presented them both with their presents and I am pleased to say they were both 'chuffed to bits' and very grateful that I had taken the time to make them something.

A lesson learnt I think is that if I was to put together another mini book using acrylic I would plan it ahead of time.
