Today I am featuring the new Mouse in the House - Do Not Disturb This Mouse, this stamp set is totally adorable, don’t you think!!!!!!

For my project today I used this stamp set and created a Book Card, there were a few learning curves to work out the best way to do the pages for this book, but I finally got there.

I used the Die-namics Circle Stax 1 & 2 to layer the mouse onto. The chair, footstool, pillow and shirt are all paper pieced. I used a black marker to draw in the lines for the floorboards and added some designer paper for the wallpaper.

I used the Die-namics Chat Bubbles to add the ‘zzzzzzzzzzz’ sentiment to my image. Along the bottom of my front cover I added some chevrons using the Die-namics Chevron Stripes.

Here is another view of my book card this time so you can see the spine of my book…. complete with title which is one of the sentiments from the stamp set.

Here is the inside of my book card. On the left hand cover page I added a sentiment and used the Die-namics Layered Label Die.

One the right side I have my ‘pages’, these were made by scoring 4 pieces of card and accordion folding them and linking them together to form a rectangle with a centre opening. I have put some chocolates into my opening, but you could also put another image or whatever you wanted. I created a border along the top and bottom of the pages using the Die-namics Chevron Stripes.
