If you haven't had a chance to visit Hero Arts Blog (see right side bar )this is the week!The host Lisa mentioned Esther K. Smith's book HOW TO MAKE BOOKS and demonstrated an example of an instant book.The demo is so easy and clever I just had to have a go at it.The mini book is made with only one sheet of paper and I've prepared a few but so far I've managed to only finish this one which was made using one sheet of that crazy bulky textured paper Gabrielle and I made a month ago.
( the size of the mini book = 3 in. x 4 in.)

all stamps: Hero Arts
p.p: SEI
solid cardstock: ( solid indeed!) Homemade
buttons: SEI
die-cuts ( title and small flower):Quikutz
adhesive: Tombo Mono, Golden Gel Medium
watercolour pencils:Derwent
brad: making Memories
acylic paint
gemstones: K & Co.
Here is a mosaic ,please note the pages here are not in order of appearance in the instant book; you can see more of it HERE

I ordered Esther's book at www.BETTERWORLD.COM ( free shipping in the USA, $ 2.97 Worldwide. Carbon Free. Fund literacy and fair prices )
Can't wait to hear what you think and if you were to try it please let me know where I can see it.Thank you my friends.
