i participated in the happy little moments class at studio calico a few months ago. it was amazing. i have made my fair share of mini albums over the years, but i had never altered an older book. i loved every bit of it. and it's one of my favorite books to date. it's just so pretty.
i finished the book during the class, but i struggled with the cover. i think i always struggle with the covers for some reason. it's just so "permanent" if that makes any sense??? finally i took the plunge and decided simpler is better. i covered it with some of my favorite dear lizzy paper, a doily and a title. i used some canvas along the spine to make it look more "book" like.
have you ever altered a book? my favorite part is all of the little bits and pieces sticking out of the sides!!
fingers crossed that studio calico will have another happy little moments class in the future!! :)
