"Engaged In Barbados" mini-book

Good evening bloggers.
I made this mini-book to remind my hubby and me of our fantastic holiday in Barbados (many years ago) when he proposed to me.
The holiday was very special and I wanted to create a book that would be just as special and unique.
So, I used my Gypsy to make a one-off design from the cover and inserts to the page tabs, photo mats, borders, tags, titles and flowers.
Then I used my Cricut to cut the designs from patterned paper, card, chipboard, grungepaper and acetate.

Once I had designed the shape and size of my book, I cut the cover from chipboard and the embellishments from grungepaper.

The Gypsy is perfect for sizing mats. I used it to size the scallop circles behind the journaling spots.

I designed scallop borders to use throughout my book. they also work well as the edges on journaling strips.

I made plenty of pockets for hidden journaling and extra photos.
Hope you like it
Pam xx
