'Correspondence' Mini Booklet

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
I'm back to share with you my current reveal for Meg's Garden.
This time I have made a Mini Booklet with the wonderful new 'Correspondence' Mini Paper  Pack and I've also used a few items from the 'Green Bundle' that Meg sells in the store.  This little booklet was made as a small  gift for my Granddaughter, she loves flowers and butterflies.  Usually she would want everything in pink but she tells me she's growing up (she's 11) and is getting too old for pink!!  LOL
 Here is the cover.  As stated before, the papers are from the Mini Paper Pack.  I've created a few layers here although they are not too easy to see.  The ribbon used to close the booklet is from the Bundle pack.  There are quite a lot of ribbons in the pack and it was difficult to chose as they are all so pretty but I think the green stripe suits this little booklet perfectly.  
 The heart diamante strip is also from the Bundle as is the gorgeous green heart gem.  As well as lots of ribbon, there are also lots of beautiful gems in this Bundle.  I loved going through it when it first arrived.  It was like getting a little Birthday present,  didn't know what was going to come out next.  If you'd like to see for yourself exactly what is in this Bundle of goodies HERE is the link.
Did some stencilling on the front with Crushed Olive  Distress Ink, although that ended up being mostly covered but here you can see some of the layers a bit more clearly.  Love the different scripts on these papers ... gorgeous!!
 The first double page which I also stenciled lightly with Crushed Olive Distress Ink.  The small green paper flower is also out of the Bundle packet.  See what I mean about the script??  Love it!!
 The second double page, again with more script.  I guess that's why this collection is called "Correspondence'.  LOL!  Some more stenciling, this time with Fired Brick Distress Ink.  These papers take the ink very well.
 These pages have a little bit of stamping and, of course, butterflies.  Looooove butterflies!!
 More stamping and some more ribbon  from the Bundle Pack ... 
... and more Butterflies!!!  
 These pages are coloured  with Distress Ink and stamped as well ...
 ... and more stenciling here.
 The back cover was stenciled as well, and I'd like to thank my Dragon babies for holding the pages open for me.  Great job guys!!
I do hope you liked my little booklet, I certainly had a great time creating it.  These papers are so lovely to work with and they take the stamping and inking very well. The items from the Temptations Bundle came in so handy and were perfect for this project, and I still have heaps of it left!!  Woo!! Hoo!!

  3. Oh Margy this is just a treat and I am sure she will be thrilled with this little treasure. I love the detail on the front cover it is just beautiful and each page so lovingly created. Love it.

  4. What a fantastic book Margaret. I love that front page with the diamante and gorgeous green glass heart and the stencilling under the ribbon. Then you delight us with even more ideas inside. Love it! Jenny x

  5. Loved reading this and looking at all the photos! Love the cover especially!! I am sure your grand daughter will treasure it completely. Do you buy the mini-album as a chipboard base or do you make it out of cardstock? I have committed to more off-the-page projects so want to try another mini. I make one a year if that!

  6. exquisite, divine beauty xoxoxo

  7. What a fabulous book Margie, from the glorious cover with that stunning heart and pretty ribbon, to all the delightful pages inside, each one a treasure all by itself. Your grandy is going to love it, - very "grown up" :o)

  8. Gorgeous work and the dragon babies did a great job too! Love the booklet and its your fault I spent more money at Megs! It was the ribbon packs....and then the postage was a bit much so I added a few other know how it goes! If I makeanything half as beautiful as your booklet, I will be super impressed!

  9. A knock out project Margaret with each page a new treasure to be discovered. I adore the green heart on the front and the silver hearts tumbling down. Lots of techniques and quotes to inspire; thanks for the inspiration :D

  10. Wow, so beautiful! I love the use of the beads on the cover...I actually have some of those ;) This is such a lovely idea! I've popped over from Heather's lovely to be included with you on her list of tag-ee's.

  11. Fabulous book, love all the details and embellishments :)

  12. Wow! What amazing work Margy! Your grandaughter must be thrilled!

  13. This is so amazingly beautiful I'm totally [almost!] speechless...your GD is one lucky, lucky girl:)):) All the details are simply divine:):)
