Fun mini for 3D Wednesday

Today I'm sharing this fabulous mini I created using My Creative Time's new release. I am in love!!! The journaling die is an really great size and with the coordinating stamps that can be purchased separately, they are the most awesome combination for a mini book of any theme. I've done this one in a summer theme. Here's the cover with adorable charms made from various MCT dies. I love doing this. They're so fun. :)

Here are the charms. I've added them to the binding rings using mini safety pins. They can easily be removed and put on a purse, backpack or zipper. 

The cover, unblocked by the charms. For my book, I used the My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pad, Away We Go. Perfect for a summer travel or camping theme.

One of the coordinating stamps you can get for this journaling die. There are three styles which come together in the set.

This page was extra fun. When Grace has a burst of creativity, she calls it an "idea pop!" I had to use that on this crafty page in the book. All of the darling elements and stamps are by my Creative Time (except the index tabs, which are Quickutz dies.)

Another of the adorable journaling stamps.

Before: Grace and Olivia heading off to camp. After: They were barely recognizable after a week away!

This page turned out so cute. I didn't have a tent stamp or a tree stamp I wanted to use, so the tree is a Quickutz die. But the tent.....can you guess what that is??? It's actually the sailboat (sail only) from the new release, You Are Here.

Well, that's it. Super fun and easy little mini you can put together in an afternoon. These would be the cutest little travel journals for the kids on road trips, for notes in a backpack, address book or autograph book to pass around class at the end of the school year, party favors, or just a notebook to keep in your purse. It doesn't have to be all filled up with goodies, it can be a simple notepad. Do it up any way you like, use a theme or no theme, just have fun!! :)
