Mini Pocket Book




Well I finally decided to take my Bind-It-All out of it's box and use it. I was lucky enough to see Nicki from Trimcraft demo'ing the BIA and decided I must really use mine. Morag our scrapbook teacher is leaving to go back to the USA and so I decided rather than make a card,I'd make a mini book. I thought of having the pockets so I could make lots of little tags (cut on the Craft Robo) for all the girls to write something personal on. I used the lovely Dovecraft Papers which are in shades of black,white and fuchsia pink. The sentiment on the front was from a HOTP kit and the flowers are Dahlia Blend Flora Doodles from Joanna Sheen. I added loads of contrasting ribbons to the wires.
Inside I used Papermania fuschia pink cardstock and again it's all decorated with the Dovecraft papers and matching brads. I've also used more of the flowers inside.The inner front cover has a good luck verse which is matted onto fuchsia pink card cut with the new multishaper punches from Docrafts. I've put in lots of photos from our night out and added lots of little scrapbooking quotes from scrapbook.com.
I've only uploaded a few of the pages to give the general idea of what's in it.

I've been 'umming & arring' as to get a BIA machine think they make fab books, but keep spending to much on other crafting goodies...lol!!! Maybe one day xx vicki xx
