Stamp A Faire 2012 Continued

Happy Friday beautiful friends!! I am so far behind, but I've had a blast continuing on with my Stamp-a-faire projects! Here's the challenge:

The-Challenge
Your challenge is to pick one of the mini books from below and utilize it in a project of your own.  You can re-create an exact replica of the designer's project or reinterpret it in your own way.


I chose to make Melissa's Mini Book using the Library Card Die and mini Library Pockets. Squeal....What a cute little project! I still can't contain my excitement over this project and I just have to say, I loved it so much I just had to make two of them!!!  My heart is so happy after creating these two projects!! They were just the therapy I needed!!

Here's a close-up of the first one:
I thought it would be fun to make one of these little mini tag books with strawberries using Papertrey Ink's Strawberry Patch Stamps and Dies!! The Papertrey Ink Patterned papers worked beautifully with this project!!
I also used the School Time Stamps, Movers and Shakers Sentiments and We Go Together sentiments too.  Way fun!!
and here's my second take on the challenge:
I used Pink Paislee London Market papers with the second book and I totally love the Shabby Chic feel of it!!
I used my new favorite stamp set Life is Sweet to decorate the pages in this sweet little mini!!!  What a wonderful stamp set!  I just can't get over how sweet these roses are!! They are so fun to use!

Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink Cardstock:  Rustic Cream, Pure Poppy, Kraft, Aqua Mist
Papertrey Ink Patterned Papers:  Simply Chartreuse and Pure Poppy
Papertrey Ink Dies:  Notched Flower, Simply You, Library Card, Mini Library Pocket, Beautiful Blooms 1 & 2, Spiral Notebook Page, Fillable Frames #9, Filigree Border Die
Papertrey Ink Felt:  Simply Chartreuse, Fine Linen, Vintage Cream, Pure Poppy
Papertrey Ink: Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss, Hibiscus Burst
Papertrey Ink Ribbon: Simply Chartreuse Grograin, Hibiscus Burst Grosgrain, Vintage Cream Grograin
Pink Paislee 6x6 London Market Paper Pad
Buttons from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I appreciate you all!!
