Adventures with Boo Mini Album

Hi you guys, the Marion Smith Designs creative team has compiled a collaborative post filled with Mini Album inspiration today!

For my contribution I created a small mini 3.25 x 4.5 inches long.  Where I have  documented the past year with my sweet Puppy Boo.  I know everyone is going to ask -  She is a BoxWeiler (Boxer Rottweiler mix).   We adopted her last Christmas and the past 6 months have been so fun watching her grow.

This box was inspired by Marion's Digi line Life Journal.   I used the Insta frames in the line to create pages.  I trimmed down pieces of Marion's printed lines and her Scarlet digi line to fit the size of the frames.  Then I Coptic stitched the book together.  Since my stitching was not so perfect, I decided to use a piece of lace to wrap around the spine.  This lace also softens the harsh edges of the spine. I used Marion's peony die, and bloom impression tool to create the flower on the cover.   Then cut flowers from the Motley papers to add a little depth. 

This is the perfect size book for your Instagram photos.  I printed my photos out on my color laser printer on cardstock.   I kept the design simple so that my photos really took center stage!
Here is a complete walk through video showing each page!

 I love this little mini, and I know it will be treasured in my family for a long time.
