The Little Things

This is a mini book that I've been working on for several months. It was made with the intention of teaching it at the various conventions this year (CKC, GASC, Scrapbook Expo). I knew it had to 1) be relatively simple, 2) easy enough to be mostly completed within an hour and 3) thrifty because of the pricing structure at CKCs. So, I chose the Kaiser multi-dimensional book & bling and the Making Memories green Paperie papers & embellishments. The toughest part was coming up with a theme; it has to be generic enough that it can be made into a lot of different things & appeal to a lot of people. So, I settled on "The Little Things"... which really does have a wide span of opportunity. For the sample, I chose to focus mine on the little things around my kitchen that I love. So... here it is...

Since it has a lot of journaling (gasp! I know... what got into me!?!?), I'm showing what the outside looks like when it's all closed and then the subsequent images are the scans of each page. The journaling was sloppy (& crooked) because I was a bit behind schedule and had to get it done.

I had suggested to Sarah that she contact MM & Kaiser to see if they be able to get us a better deal on the supplies. I just had to get the thing done in order for her to send them pictures of it. So, last weekend, I asked her if she wanted to take it to CHA so she could show them in person and she definitely wanted to do that. So, she took it with her and last night she presented it to the girl (don't remember her name) at MM who runs their VIP program and apparently she loved it. She even mentioned the possibility of supplying the paper & embellishments at cost. YAY! Sarah still has to work out more details and of course, find out if Kaiser can provide the books (and hopefully at a discount) and then we'll be good to go! YAY. That was a bright spot in the day yesterday.
