I inked all the edges to help blend the paper & chipboard. I was torn between a princess theme or a doll theme. I went for a girly theme. I really fell in love with the dollhouse on the paper & I wanted it to be a focal point. I used diff pinks, white & a smidgen of purple. After four days, this is what I came up with...
Picture 1: (L-R) The last page of the mini. I'm leaving it bare because I'm really crazy about the paper. Plus, when it gets put away it needs to be without embellies, etc. The front page is just the dollhouse, little dolly & title.
Picture 2: Page 2&3. This has space for 3 pictures (although the cupcake can be used as journaling tag as well)
Picture 3: Page 4&5. Page 5 has a several journaling tags that can be used for writing and/or some mini pics.
Picture 4: Page 6&7. The cut from page 6 I took apart. It cuts out with the towers connected to the saying but I didn't want the saying covered up with a pic. So I made a little card & glued the "Once..." on top. On the inside I lined it with the paper from pg 9. It gives you space for a pic & writing.
Picture 5: Page 8 and 9. These pages are for pictures and journal.
I'm happy with my mini. Its my first attempt & I'm sure with more practice I can get better at it. I know I have some bare areas that I need to add embellies to them but I don't want to do it now. I want to put it away for a day or two & then go back to it again. For the moment, I'm done looking at it. 4 days was enough. Lol! Plus, it will give me time to reboot & see it again with a diff eyes. It will be easier to add a few embellishes & not overkill it.
I already have another mini in mind. I really want to make one using my Summer in Paris cart but I'm going to wait for my Design Studio for that. I won it on eBay and its already en route. Yay!
