Layout Time...

So it was time for a layout. Shimelle's prompt for the class was about how you should pick a room and then take close-ups of three spots in there that meant something to you. So out came the camera and I went for a hunt...

I ended up picking my little scraproom and took a few close-ups there. I also really enjoyed getting the perfect reason to use my Love Elsie "Zoe" collection. I have been wanting to have a play with it for ages but never had the right photos. Today was perfect.

Sarah - you asked about the "Home Sweet Home" minibook and what size it is. The book is 8 cm wide (just over 3 inches) and 15 cm tall (6 inches) at the "tallest" point of the roof. The inside pages are just a tiny fraction smaller to make it fit neatly. I just drew a template myself and cut the covers from chipboard and the pages from cardstock. Hope that answered your questions :)

Hi Anso,

Did I miss the dimensions for the "My Home Town" mini album? I love seeing your mini books--that is my specialty--and yours are great for inspiration!

Thanks!
Jennifer
