Today’s mail arrived with an extra special package! A beautiful little hand made book that our group calls Itty Bitty Books. The first one was made around 2008 and was the creative vision of Mary Ann McKeating. She has been the driving force of our IBB projects for all these years. Together the group has made about twenty of these little treasures. I’ve shared them in several Pink Saturday posts over the years. The latest IBB was created to cheer Mary Ann as she battled cancer. The chosen theme was LOVE.
I could hardly wait to open it.
We all used creamy tones with touches of Pink. Most
of the artistic contributors also included lace.
This was a small group. Some books have 20+ participants.
We make a page for each person who is participating. We had eight contributors and we made two gift books so each person created 10 copies of their pages.
My Love page celebrated Pink and Paris…
LOVE is stamped on creamy muslin. Watercolored Pink clouds float behind the Eiffel tower. The page is embellished with old pearls and snippets of vintage lace. We sign our pages on the back;
Another page is Sarah’s Home is where the heart is…with lots of Pink details and lace.
She did a second page that is so rich with details…
I can’t even count the layers and shades of Pink!
One of our fellow Pink Saturday ladies, Nancy of My Crafty Little page created this beauty. She stamped Dream on twill tape.
She stamped and stitched on antique and vintage envelopes so each page is very different. Even the back is a beautiful creation.
