Here are 2 minis I did of the boys soccer teams... they are going to be gifts for the coaches at the banquets.
Can I just say I love doing mini albums?! They are so quick & you feel like you get a lot accomplished in a short amount of time! I did Sam's on Saturday & Jake's yesterday! One day (off & on) projects- can't beat that! LOL

This is Sam's (they're both similar)



game schedule in green









and this is Jake's... (i tried to bring out more yellow for his team colors & still need to add ribbons though I like it without too)



game schedule in yellow







wrote the same thing on the back, lol




*Bo Bunny albums & papers

Those are great Sherry! I absolutely love them. A few questions for you though.

What adhesive did you use to put the paper one?
Did you just ink the edges with black ink?
How did you go about tracing out the pieces....just trace around and then cut them?

Thanks ladies!

Jen, I used my ATG gun to attach everything, lol. I used more along the edges than I normally would for a sb page because I know it will be handled more & I didn't want stuff falling off!
Yes, I just inked the edges with a really wet, cat's eye pad- I think it's Tsukineko *brilliance*.
And yes again, just positioned the letter where I needed it & traced with a pencil then cut it out on the inside of the pencil line. I sanded the edges a bit with a nail file as well.
When I got to Jake's album I was getting lazy, lol. I would trace the letter then stick whatever paper I wanted to be the backside of the letter behind the paper on top- so I would just cut once and have both sides of the letter done.

As soon as my stepmom gets me her wedding pics I'm doing a *LOVE* album for them as a wedding gift. They're so fun!

WOW!!!!!!! They are absolutely fantastic albums! They are totally something that should be a magazine. Well done! So its just paper back to back? Or is their something hard inbetween? I would love to do something like that.

They are chipboard albums that I covered w/paper. I had to buy the binding rings separate too...
This is what was in the package--


We leave for Sam's banquet in an hour so we'll see how his goes over...!

So cute!! I love the bright colors on the 2nd one. I am working on a black board one now, but I wish I had your ability to get them done in one day. I've been working on mine for a good 2 weeks now. and it is only 6 pages
