His Masterpiece

 Last weekend, I was surprised by a couple of friends who made me a silly video to show support and encouragement to me...for being me.  It was a nice surprise to have someone take the time away from their busy schedule to tell me what I mean to them.

Fortunately, my husband got me a new Cricut cartridge for Christmas called Mini Books.  For both of these friends, I decided to make a mini book that tells them what they mean to me.  I also was excited to use some new Lawn Fawn stamps that I received for Christmas!  All of the paper I used was from my stash and my embossing powder is from American Crafts (ZING!)

The colors in this project were inspired by the new challenge blog, Pinspired Challenges.  The base of my mini book is gray and purple with accents of light and dark purple, and light and dark teal.  As someone who loves looking for crafty things to do on Pinterest...this challenge was made for me!  Feel free to play along.

Here is the entire book.  The eight pages are accordion folded and glued inside of the envelope.

The back of the box has my friend's name on it.  I am excited to give it to her...but first on to the second box for another friend!
