Fairy Dust Mini for Creative Embellishments

Do you believe in fairies?  I do, and I've created a mini album celebrating their existence using lots of Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces, along with Graphic 45's newest collection, Fairy Dust, to bring it to life. It is just the prettiest collection with vivid colors and lots of pretty flowers, and fairies of course!

I've recoreded a video walk through of the mini so that you can see all the details.

Creative Embellishments has some pretty fairy chipboard pieces and I've used one from the Tiny Fairies set on my mini album cover.  They are perfectly sized for little minis like this one. I painted her first with white gesso, then iridescent paint, and finally a nice coat of Stickles on her wings to give her that magical sparkle that fairies have!

Underneath the flowers is a corner piece from the Page Corners  Set 1, that I've heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing enamel.

I used a Sizzix Eileen Hull Designs die to create the mini itself.  It's the Passport Journal die and it just makes the cutest little minis at 3.5" x 5". There are lots of pretty pages inside, I'll just share a few with you here.  On this page, I used a Creative Embellishments Fairy Dust stencil to add some "fairy dust" the the page along with another fairy chipboard piece.  I love this one reclining on the stump!

 The Mini Ornate Frames great for using in minis.  Sometimes it's hard to find embellishments small enough to work in little miis.  I heat embossed this one with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing enamel.

 Here's another of the page corners from the Photo or Page Corners Set 1  like the one I used on the cover.  This one is heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Wine embossing enamel.

I threaded some beads and charms onto thin wire and attached to the spine where they could dangle prettily!

  6. love your mini book was wondering how you put the book together .do you know if there is a tutorial on How to do it that I could watch thanks very much

    1. Hi Diane, thanks so much for you comment and interest. Here is a link to a video that Eileen Hull did for the Passport Journal Die. The tutorial starts at about 11 minutes.

      In Eileen's tutorial she is using mixed media on the cover so she doesn't go over adhereing paper to the journal cover. Here is a tutorial I did for the Sizzix Journal and the technique for adhering your paper is the same for this as for the Passport Journal.

      I will do a tutorial specifically for the Passport die and let you know when it is posted.

      Thanks so much.
