Mini Valentine Book

I am a great admirer of Tim Holtz and his art. He had a tutorial on his blog on making a mini book from 1 sheet of 12x12" paper though we did this at doll club about 5 years ago. So I thought I would make one. I don't have the tissue tape so I used a stip I made with a punch for the top, bottom and binding. The cover heart is a Tim Holtz Sizzix Die. I used Martha Stewart, Uchida and EK Success punches and stickers by 7 Gypsies. It is 3x3" and has LOTS of pages - took me a long time to finish! I love hearts and flowers so this was fun. I used Distress Ink pads exclusively and Ranger Embossing Powders. The love on the cover was cut with my Cricut.
Most of the letters are from Tim Holtz Vintage Market Sizzix Die. The fabric flower is also cut using Sizzix dies including Tim's Tattered Petals.

Back Cover is Sizzix Die and Sizzix and Cuttlebug embossing folders.

wow..this is beautiful!! May I ask what are the colours you use from your distress inks? I have been fascinated by scrapbooking for months now but unfortunately haven't much time to indulge myself with it due to workload and datelines, and looking are creations from awesonely creative people like your goodself is the next best thing.
