A Little Loving!

I've made this heart shaped mini book using papers from Funky Hand's "Love Love Love" download collection.
To make the pages I resized the designs to print either 2 or 4 different designs on both sides of some thin (about 160gsm) card.  For the covers I did the same but on thicker card, I cut 3 pieces for the covers so that I could sandwich the white lace on the front between two pieces and hide the messy bits!
 I cut all of the heart shapes using one of the templates that come with the Craft Robo.
For the title I did a lot of "cut and pasting" from the letters sheet which is part of the download, then resized the whole thing to fit my cover.

The book is held together with a ball and chain type thingie (tech term hehe), decorated with a ruffled dotty ribbon and a big dotty button.


Here are the pages, you can click for a closer look


This was fun and easy to put together.  I hope you like it.

I used:
All papers inc. lettering "Love Love Love from Funky Hand
Dotty Ribbon + some others,  Lace (black, white) from Creative Treasures
Other buttons, gems, ribbons, brads and lace from my stash
Roses are made using a Marianne's die set
Various Nesties dies
MS Doily punch

Here's my desk shot for today's WOYWW.  

As my desk is in need to a serious tidy up I thought I'd share a little close-up of some gorgeous ribbony goodies from Creative Treasures  that arrived yesterday - such a lot of loveliness in such a little box!
