Western Mini Book

While checking out Tim Holtz's site, I came across the little video he has for a one page album.  And seeing as I already had one cut out and sitting for a couple of years in my 'started projects' drawer......I decided to finish it.

One thing I will say about the construction---on the pages that hold the tags, I had to add some tissue tape to the binder end otherwise, the tags tended to push on the binder tape---if one pushed the tag in too far and, where Tim put the binder tape, I added a second piece.

**Note added since this post** After embellishing the  pages, I found that the tissue tape binding didn't hold--so I stamped and sponged a piece of sticky-back canvas and put that on for the binding and I gued it with liquid glass as well.








The little things added to the pages can have photos or journaling papers tucked underneth.  As you can see in the last picture, the little square on the front can have a photo slipped inside and there is tape on the bottom inside to stick it together.

There you have it   :)   



  1. simply gorgeousssss!!...a creative work requiring a LOT of patience!!*tfs* :o)

  2. What a sweet book .... I love the soft colors and the chocolate brown. Glad you were able to improve upon the design! Liquid glass is a miracle worker!

  3. I love your book! My favorite color(s)!

  4. Sorry I missed you yesterday. I was actually here, then my hand hurt so badly, I had to give it a rest. This is one wonderful book. I can see you are a scrapbooker, and I love the looks of this beauty.
