when i saw the envelopes from the old school letter set in the KISSING BOOTH addon, i knew i wanted to make a mini with them. to make the body of the mini, i folded several of the papers in half, and then wrapped two envelopes around them and stitched down the edge to hold everything in place. i'm planning to do a how to on my blog later this week.
the front is misted with mister huey's clay - i used a doily as a mask. the letters were cut with my silhouette - i used the blackout font.
the stamps from SHOOTING GALLERY were perfect for this book - love how boyish they are! i used them throughout, stamping each image several times without reinking for a distressed look. the label on the opening page is from the old school letter set. i'm so glad i picked this up - i think the extra ledger papers & envelopes will come in handy both in finishing off my december daily and in my project life album.
each page is fairly simple - a monogram + banner, a sticky note with journaling, and some little bits and bobs to dress it up. i made sure each page had something overhanging the edge for added interest.
