DCWV Mariposa Mini Book

Friday greetings to you!

I have a mini book project to share with you today that I've created for DCWV as a guest designer.

This is their Mariposa Mini Book and I just fell in love with the pretty design. There are many pages in the book and I chose to tear out a few to cut embellishments from.

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of Scrappity Dappity Doo!. I do receive financial compensation and products from DCWV to develop certain blog posts, but all of the ideas and opinions noted are my own.

I decorated the spine with a few ribbons and metal embellishments from Blue Moon Beads.

The left page includes a page from that book that I tore out, then trimmed to use for my mat. A doily and tags finish the pockets on the right page. The black tab on top is an element included in the kit made of washi. 

For the design, I kept it fairly simple and am repeating a single photo mat to one side, allowing the pretty designs of the papers and book elements to shine.

I love this butterfly die cut.  The black frame behind worked so nicely to add interest.

Love the vellum pattern page and the soft texture it adds!

For these embellishments, I adhere the bottom only so the photo can be slipped in.

I used the craft and white mat stack and it worked so nicely against the red page.

This mini book is so pretty in person. The papers are gorgeous and the extra interior pockets are so nice to tuck all of your photos, notes and memorabilia into.  If you haven't given a mini album a try, this is the perfect way to jump in!

Thank you to DCWV for the opportunity to work with your products and design such pretty things. They make it easy to create a beautiful project with ease.
