Don't cha just love mini books?! They are such a blast to make. This cute fella started out as a $1 chip board album from Michael's. I cut it down to accommodate the Tim Coffey designer paper from K & Company. I love this line from him. It reminds me of where I grew up in New England. Although, I don't remember finding any sea horses or palm trees but the rest brings me right back home.
The front cover has some epoxy stickers from the collection, plus some sea netting. I added the jute twine to the rings and across the front.
I've added quite a few tags and pockets so there is plenty of room for pictures, journaling or other memorabilia. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to all the edges. Mod Podge was my glue of choice for this project and I am quite pleased with the results. I created the pocket on the left using Kraft card stock and a Sizzix D'Vine embossing folder. The crab, starfish and sand dollar are all dimensional stickers from the collection.
This page has a unique element, a fold out mini with more room for journaling or pictures.These pages also have the dimensional stickers as well as some epoxy stickers.
