Mini Monday

Hi there Bloglanders

I'm back with a mini book I made last year after Monika Wright did a tutorial on her five senses at Write.Click.Scrapbook.  If you want to get enthusiastic and finish a project quickly - join in the fun of a challenge. In the end you will have a wonderful book / layout / card that can go towards your Christmas pressie stash or in your "year in my life folder". (or if you're like me a box file) Monika also shared free printables where you can just add pictures. At WCS it is March Mini madness. Hop over there and get inspired.

Of course, my five senses is in Afrikaans but for those of you who don't know  -
Easy peasy, now you know all five your senses in Afrikaans!

Here is a picture of my page layouts:

And my front and back pages:

I laminated the front and back pages as I used a very old paper pad for this mini.

And now for the twist (didn't I tell you that I do my things MY WAY?). As I got a Zutter binder for my birthday, I couldn't wait to try it out. Therefor, I folded pieces of cardstock over the spines of 6x6 postbound page protectors (left over from another project) and sewed it in place.

Here you can see what it looked like.  Look closely, there  is actually a page protector in front on the left.

And now for the newly acquired Zutter. I just love this little machine! Thanks mom!

And here is the finished product with its light blue ring binder:

While at it, I made an extra one with more generic pictures but without the journaling.  I gave it to a friend in need who used it to focus on the things she already has and not on what she doesn't have.

That's it from me!  Happy mini Monday and get into a challenge - you may learn something.
