Eline's Bird House


I found some left overs from the papers of Eline's Huis..I love these papers .A few weeks ago  we had Creations by AR as sponsor at the Shabby Tearoom  and I just fell in love with this little birdhouse topiary .
I just had to buy the template and with the papers of Eline  and a few bonbons in the box I think I have a perfect little gift for someone sweet.

Inimini book






A little book , I wanted to make for a long time , it's only 2 inch big . I found a big box filled with craft paper what I bought years ago. It is paper with a lot of fibers so it gives a bit of textile feel when you tear it.
I used a lot of bits of  Want2Scrapbling  and rub ons from Mellissa Frances. I wantend to make a little book in a little tin ,what used to hold small peppermints but when I was ready it didn't fit any more . So I have to start over for that project..what will be  an even smaller little book. Have to use much less embellishments and thinner papers
