Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Recipe Challenge

Yesterday, I found an interesting challenge called Fabulous Friday Recipe Challenge @ Frosted Designs. At first I thought, OMG, I have to COOK something to play along this challenge?! LOL. Silly me. 

Actually, for this week's challenge participants have to use 3 'ingredients' which are 3 pattern papers, 2 buttons and 1 word title. Aha! And they encourage ALL kinds of papercraft projects, not only cards and layouts!. I said, GREAT. One of the designers' work titled 'Upkar' by Amanda, inspires me to create a minibook for this challenge. It is called 'LOVE' mini album (so February, right?)


It has paper bag handles so I could carry it around like a book bag or turn it into a wall hanger. (The handles are from a Starbucks paper bag). It opens like an accordion-like pages made out of various shades of pink cardstock papers, all secured 
with a 1" coil-binder (Zutter). This allows for thicker scrapbook content later on. These blank pages are now ready to be filled with love quotes, doodles or any photos of animals, people and things of nature that symbolized LOVE. Some sort of journal about LOVE. 


I used 3 different pattern papers (faint pink flowers, pink stripes, pastel dots)for the cover. The crochet flowers 
match the faint floral design of the pink pattern paper. 
Do you see it? :). A simple accents such as crochet flowers and 
2 pink buttons. And my 1 word title is 'LOVE'. Lastly, I tied up the paper bag handles with cute ribbons for additional support and also to give it a 'finished' look.

I hope you enjoyed my minibook project.
