Mini Album Part II

Happy Friday!!!!  I'm back today with part II of my vacation mini album.

This is the back side of the page I left off with yesterday.  This was a long skinny manila envelope that I covered with patterned paper.

Like I said yesterday, I kept these pages SUPER simple and really just added a punch here or there with a word or two of journaling.

The paper I used was pretty busy at times, like this one, so If I added too much it might have made my eyes cross.

This page I put together, meaning I adhered the two pieces of cardstock together and punched the holes.  The I realized I punched the holes on the wrong end.  To remedy that, I added a piece of paper at the "wrong" end which I had punched with a border punch.

I did the same thing on the other side and voila!  Holes were covered!!

This was the last page in the album and I think it might be my favorite.  I just took strips from all of the patterned papers and adhered them to the back piece of chipboard.

For my back cover I kept it simple and added the same patterned paper from the front with the same border punch. 

I really don't have the patience for a mini.  Tracy I don't know how you do it :)  Every time I do a project I feel like I just don't devote enough time to it and then I'm slightly disappointed with the outcome.  This was no different.  Yes, I'm glad it's done, but I'm slightly disappointment in myself and the lack of effort I put into, because I know I can do better.  Do you ever feel like that?

Anyhoo...  Hope you have a fab Friday my friends!  I'll chat with you soon and as always, thank you for stopping by and leaving me courage, in the form of comments :)


  1. oh becky this is coming out great!!! I so love all the pages! this collection was perfect for it!!

  2. Well done Becky! We are all so backed up with documenting our lives that we can't dedicate the same amount of time and effort to each project. The fact is that you have documented and you can move on. I think you did a fine job with this album. :)

  3. Great little book! I love that picture of the ginormous chicken! I know what you mean about working on the minis ... I did a December daily book last year and it was stressful!

  4. I love how the mini book came out! The last page is my favorite too!

    I think they are stressful too. I love the idea of a mini album, but I never make them!

  5. I think it's cute, Becky!
    And for me a done album is the best album (lol)

  6. Awww I had a real nice long comment and then my internet cut out and I lost it :(
    I think your mini is perfect. You have photos in it and the fun colours of the papers match your fun photos.
    I am glad you showed how you fixed an oops. I like to share my fixes and also see how others fix theirs.
    Now you just have to start the Penny Farthing mini you won from me ;)
    No matter how much time I spend on a mini or project, after it is said and done, I always think I could have done better.

  7. I think it came out really cute. Love the idea for hiding the accidental holes (I need to file that away because I do stuff like that all the time) and putting all the strips on the last page.
