Calgary Stampede Mini Album




I am addicted to making mini albums!! I haven't worked on my "regular size" album in over a year, however, I have been enjoying making these little

home-made albums.


This one features us at the Calgary stampede. I cannot go into details about everything I did, but I will share some of the more interesting points.



The cover is made using a picture from Clip Art - the ones right there on your Microsoft Word program!! I enlarged it and then cut out the individual pieces and put them back together. I put together a small tutorial so if anyone is interested, I could post that later.


The whole book is put to gether using my Bind It All. I love my bind it all and if you love making little mini books, you should definately get one!! You might see some maple leaves throughout the book...well, that is a stamp and I actually cut them each out. Yes, I am a bit "CRAZY" but I really wanted them cut out!!


This will definately be a great keepsake for many years to come!! And it was a lot of fun to make!


Thanks for visiting. Donelda

Wow, wow, wow! This is REALLY cool! I love the looks of this album. Now you are really making me want one of those Bind-It-All's. Dang it all, I am curbing my spending right now, but I will have to watch for a sale on those puppies! Your album is just precious. I love all of your attention to detail, and the handcut items really look great! Definitely worth the extra effort! :) Kelly
