Mini pocket book...

I found a tutorial for this cute mini pocket book on Michelle's blog - One thing she does is use a hobby blade and ruler. I prefer using my paper cutter for the scoring and cutting and measuring. It went a lot quicker!

I used an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Spring Fling designer paper (cut down from 12" x 12"). That one piece is the entire insides with pockets!

My cover is a 6" x 2 7/8" piece of textured Sage Shadow card stock, with a piece of white grosgrain ribbon knotted through the middle of the book.

Happy Thoughts is my go-to stamp set of choice for a project like this. I punched out a 3/4" circle from a scrap of the paper I was using, layered it on the Whisper White 1 1/4" circle with "happy thoughts" stamped on it in Classic Old Olive ink, and layered it on a Sage Shadow scallop with 1/16" holes punched thru each scallop. The entire medallion is attached to the front of the mini book with dimensionals.
