The kit to make a mini album like this one is now available for purchase on the Frost It Pink website.
You start with this and add layers of paint burlap more paint, more burlap, papers, muslin, and a hand cut title. Your book doesn't have to be about life. Since the title is handcut (I just used a small pair of scissors), you can customize the title to be whatever you want.
The kit comes with a cute chevron paper bag. I used mine to create a cover for a little book for my introduction journaling. You also get a sheet of rust-red colored Prima alphabets. I painted mine.
This is some of the journaling inside my chevron book cover. You get old book pages to do things like paint over the text so you can use them for journaling and embellishing the edges of your pages.
And a sample of what each of the sections in my book looks like. All of the pages of my book include layers of papers, Accent Cuts (I used these to make a lot of little journaling books like the one on this page), fabric and photos like this. You also get step-by-step instructions, including photos, for making the cover.
Included in the kit are:
1 Prima Mistables Wood Mini Album; 6 sheets of patterned cardstock from My Mind's Eye, Crate Paper, and Bella Blvd; five 6 x 12 pieces of Core-Dinations Embossed Cardstock from their Cosmo Cricket line; an 8 x 10 sheet of Prima Almanac Alphas; 1 sheet of Crate Paper Accent Cuts (cut-apart journailng/embellishing cards); 1 package of 10 Crate Paper Fabric/Epoxy brads; 1 yard vintage dyed crinkle seam binding; 12 x 10 inch piece of burlap; muslin for photo mats or layering; old book pages; 1 small punched butterfly.
This kit can be purchased here on the Frost It Pink website.
