Não se acostume com o que não o faz feliz, revolte-se quando julgar necessário. Alague seu coração de esperanças, mas não deixe que ele se afogue nelas. Se achar que precisa voltar, volte! Se perceber que precisa seguir, siga! Se estiver tudo errado, comece novamente. Se estiver tudo certo, continue. Se sentir saudades, mate-a. Se perder um amor, não se perca! Se o achar, segure-o!

My little book...

Hello, friends!
Today I'm here to share a simple tutorial that I made for June wonderful Mood Board, using Zarza Laser chipboards and Inkido papers and embellishments!
 It's about one of the things I love the most: Books! (I'm a Literature teacher, and books are my life!)
So, I create this project with all my love. Hope you like it!

The gorgeous Mood Board...
And the "Little Book" I create to my 7 years old sweet daughter register her childhood feelings!

 I used Zarza Laser Chipboards with emboss powder... it's so beautiful!

Some details... flowers, pins and lace...

Now, I'll show a very simple tutorial of this project...

I used a "The Cinch", a great and usefull machine. Very easy to manage.

After binding the book, I added a piece of Inkido paper a little bit smaller than the cover.

Another pattern. I distressed the borders with a distress tool and Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

One more pattern of Inkido gorgeous papers!

Then, I used Zarza Laser Chipboards, with emboss powder. I love to use them.

Now you can add some flowers, laces and other embellishments you want! It's ready! It's so sweet!

I reaaly hope you like it!
Thanks so much for visiting us. And you are invited to participate this month, inspired on the great Mood Board about "Books"!
