Guest designer Heather Jacob - Vintage/Rustic mini book

Hello everyone
a very warm welcome to Megs Garden blog.

My name is Heather Jacob and I am absolutely thrilled to be a Guest Designer
showcasing the Sherlock Vol 11 Collection
here on Megs Garden Blog.

These  papers are just perfect for my Vintage mini book 

I decided to create a book using black and brown cardstock. 
embellishing each page with the Sherlock vol 11 papers using 
 layering, stitching, distressing, inking and stamping . 

The cover is embellished with the emphera .
I had so much fun with this project and I truly hope you like it .

My Vintage mini Book Cover .
lots of layering, distressing and stamping .
tied up with string and I also added some tiny pewter jewels .

I love the look of tags poking out from within the book
adding both mystery and interest to the viewer .

 vintage post cards are wonderful to use in mini books .

a pocket oozing with journaling on tags .

a small pocket full of tags and stamping.

 mood boards take me out of my comfort zone .
using different colors and hues .

loving these soft pastels and texture .

to finalise my album
I decided to add a post card on the back of my vintage book .

This Sherlock Volume 11.
collection is such a delight to work with,
both inspiring and magical.
