I generally don’t like making mini albums. For me personally they are time consuming dust gatherers, I really can’t help feeling that way. I do however like making them once in a blue moon. This little mini album is for my nephew who lost his puppy recently, and I wanted to make a little keepsake for me to remember Buck by. The Lady Pattern Paper papers in Chocolate Chilli were the perfect choice for this project.
Buck's Mini Album - RIP

Step 1

Gather your papers and cut them in half. Remember to trim the barcode strips off and keep them to use inside your mini album as well.

Step 2

Use a bone folder and fold the 6×12” papers in half to form square 6×6” pages.

Step 3

Open up the pages, clip them together using a peg and then sew them together in the middle. I used my sewing machine to sew down the middle.

Step 4

The stitching makes for a nice strong hold and is really quick and easy.

Step 5

I used this piece of paper so that when it is folded it forms a natural title page for the cover.

Step 6

Decorate the inside of the mini album using the barcode strips, embellishments, buttons and themed elements.

Step 7

Words die-cut on the Silhouette works well with the barcode strips and photos – Simple reminders of a special bond between a boy and his puppy.

The cover is dressed simply with a title BCK for BUCK minus the U as I ran out and I embossed and inked feather. To remind him that whenever a feather naturally passes his way that Little Buck is watching over him.

That is the story of Buck’s Mini Album, I hope he will like this little treasure…
