Isn't she adorable? I love mini albums and this one was very easy to make because I used a pre-cut chipboard base kit. I traced around pieces of cardstock and patterned paper and cut them out for each component of the album.

As soon as I saw the new Zoe patterned paper packet from CTMH, I knew it would be perfect for this cute Owl album. It came together very easily using Yes Glue to adhere the paper to the chipboard. The patterned paper eyes were cut with a 1" circle punch. The black chipboard pupils are included with the owl album. The beak was covered with washi tape from the Carnival pack and adorned with an Enamel Triangle.

I used the same twine for the stems of the flowers. The "flowers" are actually intended to go beneath the eyes on the owl's face.

Here are the pieces of the album prior to decorating and assembling.
|Different Shapes and Sizes of Inside Pages|
Having a variety of internal pages makes the book more interesting because you get a sneak peak at what is coming up in the book.

The zip strips from the paper packet make a nice frame around the 5 x 7" photo on the inside of the front cover. My favorite adhesive for photographs is 3M's ATG 1/4" acid free tape. All of the chipboard and paper I used are acid free, too.

Some of the small titles came from the negative cuts from the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. I try to use every scrap in my scrapbooking!
