another mini book

This is a project i have been working on for a few weeks now and i have only just finished it. Some good friends of ours got married at a local hotel, and although we were not invited to the whole day, we were able to get some out door pics and pics of there evening reception. As a crafter i tend to like making something to that celebrates the occasion rather than handing over a disc of photos. If you look close up you can see that i have used 2 inch scrapbooking rings, and yes i made the book from scratch, using chipboard and MME papers. The stamp is one i bought from the USA ages ago and always comes out for wedding projects.





at least 5 of the pages use base white card and patterned paper over the top. But as you can see, from the next two pics i bought some black envelopes from a large stationers and cut them in half to make pockets for the some of the other photos taken and










added tabs to pull out each section. Of course all the edges of the paper were distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink, and the sewing machine came out. This has worked out well because i was able to add more pictures than i would normally. I have done brag books in the past but you can only put 10 pics in and i had more than 10.







I do hope they like there little memento of there special day.
