Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! I´m excited to share my second The Wild Hare Kits October Petite Kit project with you today. For today´s post, I´ve prepared a tiny minibook in bright and happy colours.
This is the finished mini:
The base of this minibook is a premade one by Maya Road. I have been hoarding it, because I love the thick pages and the robust covers. They were in kraft tone in the beginning so I gave them a „treatment“ with gesso and yellow paint.
I also treated all the pages in a similar way, but only applied a hue of yellow paint onto the pages.
Both for the cover and the pages inside the book I fussy cut the „Cuckoo Clock“ images from the Truly Grateful Paper No. 11 by Pink Paislee and adhered them onto the cover on top of the stamping. The stamps I used for this mini were not in the kit, but from my own stash (Viva Las Vega Stamps and Klartext Stempel). Also the small phrase squares in 2×2 inch size that I used throughout the minibook are by Pink Paislee & from the Truly Grateful collection.
I used the squares in whole and also cut into smaller pieces for decoration throughout the minibook.
I also created additional „pages“ to fit all the photos into the minibook, by folding the „I am Mom“ yellow/blue paper into tiny pages. Throughout the pages I´ve added sentiment stamping which highlights/matches the minibook theme really well. This book is about my knee surgery late May and I wanted to write the story down and collect all the memories together in one place.
I kept the design quite simple, but could not resist adding a few fussy cut elements here and there.
I also added some of the Pinkfresh Studio „Office Hours“ chipboard stickers for detail and decoration. I´ve also sneaked in some stenciling on some of the pages. The stencil is from my stencil line collection at STAMPlorations.
Here is a short flip-thru video of the minibook. I created this book away from home when I was on my knee surgery related rehab, so the photos are partly done with my mobile phone, so my apologies for the poorly results..
I´m sorry if the quality is not the best, but when you don´t have your studio around, you need to improvise. Hope you like the video and get inspired to create something fun yourself with the Wild Hare Kits kits.
See you on the 25th for another The Wild Hare Kits project – then I will be sharing my take on the monthly sketch with the rest of the team :)!!
