Kitchen Rolls Mini Book

Hello Everybody

I did not make any new stuff recently but I thought it would be high time that I share mini book I did out of empty kitchen rolls for my swap partner Suzie. Suzie and myself agreed to do shabby style mini book kit, by decorating the first page (the cover) and keeping the rest of the book simple and adding few matching embellishments.

So this is my cover:

and few pages inside, I could not resist but put few flaps and one extra mini accordion book inside:

And as I said this is a kit so there are few hand made embellishments I added:

and close up of my hand made roses:
And finally I needed something to put a note on so did this tag:

So for the mini book I used Pink Paislee papers, Tim Holtz - Sizzix dies, Hero Arts stamps, Tim Holtz Ranger distress inks, bids and charms are by Cousin, Doilies are made by my Mum long time ago and pearls are from my stash - old stuff.
For the roses I used pink handmade mulberry paper, EK Success punches, Tim Holtz die and distress inks. If you are interested in having go with these yourself there is very good tutorial on You Tube  by Jannaviles here and finally the tag is made using Glimmer mists and distress inks, stamps and Hero Arts and Autumn Leaves and one of my roses and butterfly, again made with Tim Holtz Sizzix die.

I hope you like this, Suzie loved it anyway.

Have a nice day

  5. What a beautiful swap, really gorgeous.

  6. Hello! I found my way here via Sam Wright's blog, and I like what I see. Love all the little handmade touches on this album--I'm sure your partner was very pleased with it!

  7. And I'm the luck girl it was made for!!!! And it is even more beautiful in real life!

    So sorry for my late post, still having on/off problems with blogger.

    Stunning, stunning work Svjetlana (as with everything you make) I simply adore it!!! Also, I have used almost all of your wonderful handmade embellishments on a huge project I have working on, and they are simply perfect!!!!

    Can't wait to show you now that I'm back in the world of blog land. Will post as soon as I am finished, but still a way to go yet. It's a large (mini) album for my Dad's 70th (which was yesterday) and it's taking me so long, didn't finish it in time, oh well, I'm sure he will still love it, when he gets it. Let's just call it an extending birthday, lol!

  9. Wow great work! I made a mini from loo rolls and it was great fun and very satisfying to make something from what would otherwise have been put in recycle bin. Love the embellies!
