Zoe Owl Album - Lots of Pictures

Isn't she adorable?  I love mini albums and this one was very easy to make because I used a pre-cut chipboard base kit.  I traced around pieces of cardstock and patterned paper and cut them out for each component of the album.
Enamel & Glitter Triangles Used for Eyelashes
As soon as I saw the new Zoe patterned paper packet from CTMH, I knew it would be perfect for this cute Owl album.  It came together very easily using Yes Glue to adhere the paper to the chipboard. The patterned paper eyes were cut with a 1" circle punch. The black chipboard pupils are included with the owl album. The beak was covered with washi tape from the Carnival pack and adorned with an Enamel Triangle.

Chipboard Album Components Covered with CTMH Zoe Paper 
After completing each page I made two holes with the Crop A Dile for the binding.  The Glacier twine is strong enough for two-hole binding this sturdy little book.

Polka Dots Made Shiny by Covering with Liquid Glass
I used the same twine for the stems of the flowers.  The "flowers" are actually intended to go beneath the eyes on the owl's face.  

Kraft Chipboard Pieces for Album
Here are the pieces of the album prior to decorating and assembling.
Different Shapes and Sizes of Inside Pages
Having a variety of internal pages makes the book more interesting because you get a sneak peak at what is coming up in the book.

Inside Front Cover
The zip strips from the paper packet make a nice frame around the 5 x 7" photo on the inside of the front cover. My favorite adhesive for photographs is 3M's ATG 1/4" acid free tape. All of the chipboard and paper I used are acid free, too.
Mini Book Bound with CTMH Glacier Extra Thick Twine
The chipboard page on the right is a rectangle that I cut to make a little shorter. The patterned paper was cut to the size of the original chipboard page.  I wanted to have some paper stick out on the end to cut with a scallop punch for an additional decorative edge that would somewhat mimic the page underneath.
Journaling Done by Child Adds a Cute. Authentic Touch
By assembling and binding the pages once they were completed I could choose the order that made the most sense to me.

Some of the stamped images are from the August Stamp of the Month Set called Framed.
4 x 6 photos cut a little to fit pages
Remember that to see more detail,you can click on any of the photographs.
Washi Tape and Cricut Artistry Die Cuts on Hidden Pocket
I didn't want my journaling to show since my daughter's journaling is what I wanted people to mainly read. Because of this, I hid a little slide-out card behind a pocket made from cardstock and decorated it with lots of cut up washi tape and a few stamped die cuts.
Inside Back Cover With Zoe Assortment Gem
Some of the small titles came from the negative cuts from the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  I try to use every scrap in my scrapbooking!
