I have just taken part in my first swap on UKS. It was a minibook/album swap organised by Vicky.
I had to make a mini book for Hazel (Zaraandmax) and she had to make one for me.
My brief for the one for Hazel was that it was to be 8 x 8 and be in speia tones as she wanted to use this for piccies of her dogs. She emailed me a piccie of her doggies and wanted this on the front cover. I found it quite a challenge trying to make up blank pages with spaces for journalling etc without knowing what photos were going to be used. I included some hidden journalling spaces on pull out tags and behind tabs. I think Hazel liked it and I hope she posts piccies of it on her own blog once it is filled with piccies.
My brief for Hazel was for a shabby chic book and the one she sent me is beautiful. I have just realised I haven't photographed it yet so will get piccies taken and post on here shortly. I think I am going to use mine either to hold photos of my forthcoming retreat with the girls from the Kaleida crops crop in Uddingston or possibly as a design/ideas book for when I move house.
