Cocoa Tints–Colour Combo Blog Hop

At last I finally finished a colour combo blog hop challenge ahead of time Smile
Picture 2 (4)
I always love the colour combo, but this time especially (thank you talented Amy), I think it lends itself to a pretty pretty project and as my lovely niece Lauren appears to be having her 14th Birthday this weekend then I made her a card/minibook to scrap her own reminder of it. She lives with me so she can use my stash quite easily.
I started with the sheet of Prima Fairy Flora in 6x6, some Thorndon Hall and some stash. I have pretended that the cream is more white (i’ll blame it on my screen resolution) and used white DL envelopes to make a minibook based on the fab tutorial that a very clever and dear friend Susi gave for one of her projects for the Christmas Countdown over at Creative Craft World.
The front cover….
…..and some of the pages.

Thanks Susi Smile
I’m also going to enter it into Shimelle’s pocket challenge as there are lots of pockets for Lauren to slip her tickets and receipts into.
Thank you so much for making it through the hop, i’ve already seen next months colour combo and it is gorgeous.


  1. Aww thanks for having a go Jen, the book looks fab and I'm sure Lauren will be thrilled with it:)

  2. This is beautiful. She will absolutely love it!

  3. That is gorgeous! Any fourteen year old girl will LOVE that. What a super nice aunty.

    I am also participating in the blog hop today but didn't end up on the list. Please pop on by to see my post for the hop. :)

  4. Oh, how *pretty!* It's really, really lovely :)

  5. How very pretty! What a wonderful gift for your niece!!

  6. Loving all that texture on the front - really cocoa-y!

  7. This is so pretty!! I just love seeing the blog posts from all you crafty paper people! Makes me wanna dig out my paper stash!

  8. I apologize that I didn't get to hop around before my travels - but now I am glad I can take my time and catch up with everyone unhurried. That is a lovely book - she will no doubt love and cherish it.


Aren't you lovely, you have made me smile =)
