I Know This Much is True...

I had the pleasure of teaching a mini book class this week. The concept of this book has been on my idea sheet for quite some time, so I'm tickled that it finally came to fruition...

The original idea came from the book by Wally Lamb. Oprah then took it to another level when she posed it as a question to celebrities and then made it into a regular section of her magazine. I fell in love with the concept--to share what I know my life lessons are at this time--and to put it in mini book form. I promise to revisit my finished album at a future date, for sure!

The size of the book is 6x9. I used a big mix of mostly yellows/golds and blacks/greys for this one...

Here are a few of the inside pages:

I had planned on putting this book up as a project kit, but I only have a handful left. If you would like to purchase one of the leftover kits, please email your Paypal information to me at Turay413@gmail.com, and I'll be happy to send you an invoice. The cost of the kit is $30, (plus $7 shipping, unless you want me to hold it for the kit release date on Tuesday and I can combine shipping then.) The cost of the kit includes everything to complete the mini book, along with an email with photos and a pdf downloadable (your kit includes the printouts, the pdf will include the originals in case you want to add to your book.) This project involves simple assembly, as everything is cut and punched for you--so it should only take about an hour to assemble. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! :)
Enjoy your weekend!
