Last year my daughter Kara graduated high school and just a few hours before her formal we took a tonne of photos of her all dressed up in formal dress with her sisters and I decided it would be idea to make a mini book with some of those photos I had taken to celebrate her day.

When starting this mini book I made sure I measured the height of the elastic bands in the center of the travelers journal so it would fit nicely with out the papers bending.

I cut long strips of pattern papers I could turn into tags and long strips of vellum to add within the page layers

Then I added all the pages and cover and machine stitched down the centre to hold the book altogether

I used papers from the Poetic Rose collection 12x12 paper pad to cover and decorate each page

And die cut leaves and pretty flowers from the collection and a few of finnabairs stamps to create a pretty white embossed images on the vellum

And lots of little bits of the printed chipboard from the collection to add to the tags inside the book

I machine stitched each page to add extra texture and prettiness I added little pockets on the inside the front and back of the cover
