Mini Album for Faith

I'm back again, after quite a long absence I might add.  I have made many projects since my last posting.  I would like show you a mini album that I did for my oldest granddaughter, Faith.

I used some ribbon that I got from the Scrapbook Expo last year and a feather piece for a hairband that I got at Hobby Lobby.  I also used a Crystal Sticker by Mark Richards.  I wrapped the cover with some Bo Bunny dots paper and some black velvet on the Binder.

The closure is the feather piece on a folded strip of Velvet, I then put a flat bottle cap on the back of the flower and added a magnet.  The other part of the magnet is in the Chipboard cover with paper.  I like this kind of closure, I use it all the time.  The other end is glued down and I added some decorative brads.  I didn't get a picture of  it.

I wrote a little note to Faith to let her know that I love her.  I don't get to see my granddaughters very often, about twice a year.  They live in Rapid City, SD and I live in Milwaukee, WI.

The book is made out of A2 envelopes and cardstock,  I used Laura Denison's "stack the deck" binding system and went from there.  I cut the cardstock about 3 ins wider than the envelope and about .25 inch shorter and then I scored on the 3" mark and used a decorative MS Punch.  I added some miscellaneous stickers and rub ons to the flaps and matted the inside of the little card and added pictures to them.
I added tags throughout the book, some of them are removable and some are actually glued down.

My husband and I went out to South Dakota at Thanksgiving and I was able to give Faith the book in person.  Faith loved the book, and when people showed up for Thanksgiving dinner she had to show everyone.  I really think that whe will treasure it for a long time.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures, and I will see you all again soon.
thanks for following my blog!
