A while back I saw a video from a very inspirational lady in wich she challenged us to create a small key chain booklet, filled with inspirational words for someone. Now I wasn’t going to enter the challenge, as I have never posted a video on YouTube before, let alone a video response. She did however allow the entrance to be sent in by email. It’s the 1500 subbie and birthday challenge by CreaBoetiek.
The idea has been roaming in the back of my mind ever since. I love making books and booklets and the thought of making an inspirational booklet for someone was very appealing. So, yeah, I did, I made a little keychain booklet. In fact I made two, just in case the first one would go wrong.
I cut and embossed the covers.
I glimmer misted the covers. Worked a little Perfect pearls onto the them, mint and heirloom gold, by rubbing my embossing inkpad over the covers and brushing the perfect pearls onto them. I then set them by spraying them with a little water mist. After this I layed out the things I wanted to use for the covers.
Some distressed muslin and tulle, a piece from an old dictionary, some corners, a tiny picture and a small compass embellishment.
The spine is made from embossed leather, treated with perfect pearls in the same colours as the covers. Added some black archival ink and stamped the word BE in gold. I did have to touch that up with a gold pen though, because the stamping didn’t go all to well on the embossed leather.
After I assembled the booklets and added the ABC, I added the chain and keyring with some trinkets to the booklets.
Some inside shots.
So here they are, my little booklets filled with an inspirational alphabet. Now I will go and sent some happy mail to my friend and enter this to the challenge over at CreaBoetiek.
I leave you all to be Adorable, Brilliant, Creative and just be whoever you want to be.
Have a nice day.
