Home Sweet Home Address Book

A tiny little address book to give to a friend, tuck in a purse or keep on your desk.

Mini Address Book

Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two die cuts were altered for the booklet.  The front and back flaps were covered with Madison Paper and edged with Orange PanPastel and a Tangelo Memento Marker.

Elements from Penny Black's Sweet Home were stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut to create the dimensional scene.


The inside pages were highlighted with a Sofft Art Sponge and Diarylide Yellow PanPastel.  No need to computer generate each page with "info lines" as this cute stamp is from Penny Black's Address Book set.  

For fast color blocking, I created a masking template.  A window was cut into a plain piece of cardstock with a craft knife.  Alignment marks were used on the back for consistent placement on each page when chalking.  Blue painter's tape kept each piece secure during the process.
