Preston Mini Book

I did this little photo album for my friends after my recent visit back to Preston last month.

I was originally going to just send the photos through the post, but then decided to just do a quick, and I mean quick album/mini book, I wanted to send it to them before I went on my holiday, because I knew if it waited till I got back it would never get done. So the whole album does not have much embellishment has I would have liked, but did include some stamping and the occasional wood veneer, and of course a few cameo die cuts.

I did 3 albums all the same, so the process was very quick. Kraft card stock cut 7x5, and I did a little card to accompany each album.

Basically I added a strip of patterned paper down the outside of each page, add the photo and some stamping, embellishments.

Cameo die

I always have such a great time when I'm with my friends and more than a few laughs so it was good to capture our day together.

Thanks for stopping by
