Mini Journal Book with Shari Carroll

Welcome to the blog everyone!! It’s Shari here with a twist on an art journal idea. I’ve created a mini book that can be used as a travel journal or even a multi page card. 

I’ve discovered this beautiful Shades of Love paper from Moda Scraps that goes really well with the stamps and dies for each page on my book. 

I’ve done a little coloring with PrismaColor pencils.

I used a die cut sentiment mounted onto a circle and adorned with flowers.

And, I stamped on pattern papers and added a vertical sentiment.

Then I backed a word die cut tag with pattern papers.

Also, I cut strips of papers to create an interesting arrangement.

And finally, I added a simple die cut flower with a sentiment strip. 

I hope I’ve sparked some inspiration to get you going on a simple mini journal. Be sure to check out the video below to see how this all comes together!
