Hawaii mini book

I heart Amy Tangerine! Not only is she just the sweetest, she also designs amazing paper and these fantastic mini books! I am having such a blast with this book!
I used some of Amy's fabric paper and Thickers to create the cover. Then I stamped out "twenty eleven" in Smitty's ABCs on to a Bannerific banner. Both of these sets are just so much fun for scrapbooking and mini books. I think journaling looks adorable in the banners, too!

I added some stitching to my card stock and frayed the edges of the fabric paper with my finger nail. I added some Distress Ink to my banner to go along with all of the stitching and fraying. This is just the beginning of my attempt to scrapbook my Hawaii trip from August/September. My goal is to finish by Thursday! Wish me luck!

  2. I'm soooo in love with these too. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

  3. Cute! I just got an Amy Tangerine book to hopefully put stuff in from my trip to CHA. I doubt I will do anything with it while I am there but I will probably throw it in my bag anyway. :) It's a new adventure and I thought it would be a great time to try out a little mini book!

  4. Good luck on finishing by your goal date!! This is so cute. :)

  5. That is a cute book! Have fun completing it! I did a couple mini's from our trip to Costa Rica, I like doing mini's of vaca's b/c you can do several and not get "burned out" on one event! Good luck finishing by Thursday?
