Sewing themed mini book

Hi all
I made my first mini book using a vintage set of papers  last week and now I can't stop making the little things...this one is 8x8 however so not so mini
I have used the gorgeous happy days papers [ my newest pack] ,journaling cards and designer die cuts from papermania....the papers are just fab .As always the gorgeous grosgrain teal ribbon and white organza ribbons,twine  and sizzor charm is from the fab meiflower new  sizzor die cut edge die  is by sizzix.the buttons sizzlit is from SU The .Lace is from my stash .The button die cut border is from memory box.The stamped heart and sentiment on the front of the book is a free bee from docrafts creativity this month.The embossing folders I have used throughout the book are by xcut
