And now it's time for some beautiful minis! This first mini was created by Jane Tregenza and features our adorable Little Darlings collection. You are going to love all of the sweet little details on every page of this mini! Here is what Jane had to say about her creative process!
"I love the new range of baby paper from Graphic 45. It’s been a long time since I have seen baby paper this beautiful. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to make a mini book and a box to keep it safe, as it will be
quite a few years until I am a grandmother! I used a teddy caddy box from Imaginarium Designs which I covered in Little Darlings papers. I had a knob left over from another project so I rubbed some white paint on it to match the box. The knob is one of Graphic 45’s Geometric Metal Door plate and knobs. I love the largess of these knobs and use them all the time. The Tim Holtz feet perfect for lifting the box up." -Jane Tregenza
"The book is made using one of Graphic 45’s Kraft Envelope Albums. I used three different shades of cardstock to make the foundation pages. I then added the print papers with layers of strips of cardstock and more print papers. I have room to add more photos or words when I need to. Each of these pages would make lovely cards if you are a card maker." -Jane tregenza
