First of all: ACK! NO GLITTER!
This little 3.25" x 3.25" booklet opens into an accordion style card, using the same template as a pink booklet here.
The booklet opens about 18" long. Depending how deep the spine is, more photos or dimensional items can be added.
The first thing seen when the book opens is a tab of flowers cut from the MS punch. Pull the tab to open the booklet.
The "birdie" booklet is inspired by friend and fellow "Stampin' Seestah" Sandy (Cheesy). Sandy gifted me with the Colorbok Truffle paper stack one day. Sorry it took so long to show my appreciation!
And YES I used my little Janome Sew-Mini again - I love it.
The "Oldie But A Goodie Challenge" was not only "inspired by a song" but had to utilize at least one item not used for 6 months. Actually, that was easy for me, since I haven't been able to do anything for six months. But the paper stack, two SB dies, Copper rhinestones, and stamps from set SNS Bird Swirl #432 were all over 6 months old, having never been used.
Did you know Sandy is a die-hard air guitarist? (ducking here)
Life Style cookie cutter dies are a fabulous deal for the price, creating awesome layers, but difficult for fumble fingers to use easily.
Will I purchase more? Probably, because they are wonderful for layering purposes.
