Rustic/Vintage mini book - Guest designer at Megs Garden

Hello everyone
a very very warm welcome to my blog

Today I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer over at

showcasing the Sherlock Vol 11 Collection

These  papers are just perfect for my Vintage mini book 

I decided to create a book using black and brown cardstock. 
embellishing each page with the Sherlock vol 11 papers using 
 layering, distressing, inking . 

The cover is embellished with the emphera .
I had so much fun with this project and I truly hope you like it .

My Vintage mini Book Cover .
lots of layering, stitching, distressing and stamping 
adding little touches like pewter beads and string create interest.
post cards are a delight to add to any vintage project .

stamps add personality .

tags and pockets hold journaling

more pockets with tags and stamping .

mood boards take me out of my comfort zone
different colors and hues

love these soft hues .

to finalise my project
I decided to add a post card on the back of my vintage book .

This Sherlock Volume 11.
collection is such a delight to work with,
both inspiring and magical.

The book contains little pockets and Tags where
I added journaling to keep memories alive for future generations.
thanks so much for looking at my work
until next time take care.
