Hi Its Suzanne again. As I said I went mad with this paper and the amazing thing is that this is the second mini book, but I also have made a Scrap Layout, 3 cards, 4 Thank You cards and a tag. The sad part is I ran out of paper before I could do the off the page projects lol.
“Love is like a Butterfly” Mini book by Suzanne Crowther
This little mini boom I deigned myself, I must say I made a few as I did one back to front anyway all was good I hope you like this project and you may get to see the other projects on another day!!!
Using Black cardstock cut your card 12 inches long x 4 inches in height so this will form the size of the book. Score this at 6 inches and fold. Cut your next piece at 12 inches x 4 inches score at 1 inch this will glue to the back page to form your album, score at 6 inch that gives you 1 page and the piece alone will only be 5 inches left. Your next piece is 12 inches x 4 inches this is scored at 2 ¼ inches, 3 ¼ inches, 4 inches and the last piece will glue to the 5inch panel this will give you 12 panels to decorate and add photos to ext.
You can add more pages by gluing some flip pages, I made a few like that but I think this looks pretty awesome. I cut the front and back cover leaving a space all around the front cover. I added a lace die cut, a texture paste butterfly, metal leaf, blue flower, small flower, metal decoration with little nob, metal butterfly, blue brads, ribbon and gesso.
Page 1: I used a plain backing paper added Butterfly Collection paper lace + ribbon, silver metal trim, gold + silver crosses, Butterflies and ink. This page has Charlotte and Blake on their Christening day. The book opens like a concertina

Page 8: With this beautiful paper I made a small pocket and made some small tags and tickets.
Page 9: More beautiful with me in a frame. I made a small frame and place a vintage beauty in then used glossy accents. When dry I added trim and Ribbon, I also die cut a frame and put a photo of me in it dressed for a vintage day.
Page 10: This was the very pale paper I put a mask on it and some texture paste, when dry I sprayed glimmer mist, added flowers and a little butterfly with the saying Gather your Dreams.
Page 11: I cut out a bigger shape of the small frame in the kit and I added Viva Ferro and Viva Metallic Paint with a mask. I also added texture paste and lightly added some inks and a saying.
Page12: More beautiful paper with some mask and texture paste, glimmer mist, a saying from kit and one of the beautiful big butterflies fussy cut out.
