For this mini-album, I began with one of my collected books, Famous Horse Stories. I chose it mainly for the color and wear of the hard cover, but the great chapter titles and boyish background text also make this book a good choice for an album about a man.
The Medium Heart Lever Punch is possibly my new favorite Fiskars punch. I love the diminutive size because it allows me to add ìloveî to my project without making it all about hearts. Bits of love, that's what the new Heart Lever Punch is to me!
Forty-year-old photos of my father combined with ones from most recent years create an album is filled with what I remember about him. Usually I make this type of little book as a gift, but this one is just for me.
1. Open book and remove sections by cutting near the inside binding with the Fingertip Retractable Craft Knife. Removing sections will allow the book to close when you add papers, photos, and embellishments. I removed the pages in ten-page sections about every 20 pages or so. Tip: If the book is quite old, it will have natural breaks in the binding, which provide natural places to remove pages.
2. Using the Compact Stamp Press, stamp some background images to some of the pages, while leaving a few blank. I chose different images for each set of facing pages I stamped on. You could use the same pattern throughout the book or vary them like I did. Tip: When you stamp the pages, place a flat object under the page (I used a clip board) so the image will transfer evenly.
3. Adhere photos to each page. Some photos may require some explanation, so add a journaling box on the opposite page. For journaling, I used my Desktop Rotary Trimmer to cut pieces of patterned paper. To create journaling strips, computer print or hand write journaling, leaving space between each line for cutting. Use the clear guide on the rotary trimmer to precisely place the text next to the cut. The clear guide will allow you to see exactly where you need to trim to crate thin strips without removing any part of the text.
