A little gift...

Hey there! After the kraft-y cards I made last time, I thought i'd make a mini this time. Mini books are just so quick and easy. This one i've made for my sister who celebrated her 40th birthday recently...

I used scribble sentiments and the wedding invite sets of stamps for this project... I stamped the tiny star over the number '40' using staz on. It's a cute little star and is great for making your own backgrounds with, or stamping over numbers and letters! I stamped on the little box birthday using scribble sentiments. I love this set!! :D

I then stuck the '40' down, slightly over the stamped 'birthday'.

The little box holds a small mini, which is atc size made from chipboard... one side I covered with a photo and the other I journalled on and stamped the cute little cupcake from the scribble sentiments set. For the front cover I also mounted the words 'on your day' which were also from the scribble sentiments set. I think thats why I love this set so much, alot of the words can be stamped together to make a sentence or they can be used alone.

By repeating the design on each page gives uniformity and makes a sweet little gift! I just hope she loves it as much as I loved making it :)
Thanks for looking
