PTI Mini Book Challenge


Hey everyone!  Thought I’d taken a nap?  LOL  I’ve just spent the last 4 hours making this mini book for the PTI SAF Mini Book Challenge!  I seriously thought I’d sit this one out, but after being inspired by Melissa’s video, I thought I’d jump in and try one!  My theme is last year’s SAF event in Ohio :)  Now, I know I’m ruining the surprise, but this book is for my dear friend, Lynn, who said, “come to Ohio for Stamp-a-faire and stay with me.”  It took me about 5 seconds to think about it and say “yes.”  So I printed out 6 photos from SAF 2011 in black and white so the colours wouldn’t clash with the colour scheme of white, pink, green and kraft (a fav combo of Lynn’s).  See what I used for the Library card holder?  Stamp-a-faire postcards that were given out last year…finally a great use for them!  Here’s a photo of the planning stage…pulling papers, stamps and fiddling with layout…


The finished pages before tying them together…


The photos close up…


On the back of each photo, I put the date and who is in the picture so that when Lynn and I are old and grey, we can remember who those strangers are with us! LOL  Like we are likely to forget EVER! LOL


Oh, and I thought I should show you the little tag in the front pocket… I punched out the SAF logo from one of the post cards.


Yay!  I get another badge!  Thanks, Melissa for getting me started!  And Lynn, act surprised when you get this in the mail ;)  teehee!  See you later…I need something to eat and then it’s the limited supplies videos! ACK!!  I’m way behind!



All PTI products except for some patterned paper.  All stamps not from PTI are from Verve
