Well after posting photos of the Wonderland that is Italy, I guess it's time to share the mini book that we made at the crop on Saturday. The theme was Alice in Wonderland and Karen at Ecletic Keepsakes had prepared an amazing mini book for us to make.
I was a little concerned to find that I was expected to make a book out of a piece of card and 8 pages from an old book, held together with a bit of red twine but hey, what's the worst that could happen?!
Even someone with my poor maths skills could guess that 8 pages of old book, folded into half was going to give 32 individual pages, and suddenly I realised why we needed to bring 16 photos with us! The book is so crammed full of embellishments and pockets and tags and labels that it is not that easy to photograph but I've taken some pictures of a few of the pages.
Karen had brought with her some beautiful Alice in Wonderland stamps, lots of pretty edging cutters, two old manual typewriters for typing journalling ... 3 tables of equipment and ink pads etc and the kit itself was absolutely jam-packed full of papers, alphabets, ribbons, twine, roses - you name it, it was in there. Such brilliant value for money and a great way to spend the day after I got back from holiday. No chance for the post-holiday blues!
