Meg's Garden Design Team Project: Butterfly Book Kit

Hello there crafters 

I am finally getting back into the swing of things after recovery, Chrissy, New Years and also moving house. Seems I like to jam a lot of things in to a small space of time. 

All that said, I still found some time to make a mini album with the Butterfly Book Kit available from Meg's Garden. 

The mini is of course Kathy Orta's All Occasions Mini of which I have made about 10 in all and really do enjoy creating them. I have added a youtube video at the bottom of this post so you can see the mini in action.  The one difference is I used a different hinge method which I actually prefer to the hidden hinge.

I pulled out all of my flowers from my Meg's Garden stash and went a little nuts, but really love the final product. I added a few Kaisercraft wood embellishments which are covers in crackle paint from Rangers to add to the overall feel I was going for. 

I even went as far as to add flowers and leave to the pages on the inside. And using the stacking hinge method meant I had a lot more space between the pages to add things. 

I included a lot of model paste stenciling and also some ink stenciling to give the pages some more dimension.

Here is the video, and remember to leave any comments or questions to this blog post or the video. 

Thanks for visiting.
