The Purrfect Mini Album

 Hello everyone, it’s Zinia and today I’d like to share with you a little minibook I created.

I know it may sound weird but my favorite minibook topic are my pets! I know many of you love making minibooks of your trips and vacations but since I don’t really travel a lot I don’t make trip themed minis. I live in a house with six cats and one dog so you can imagine all the shenanigans that are happening on daily basis.


This specific minibook is focusing on one of our kitty families. Our youngest girl gave birth to three crazy boys last year and I wanted to capture them all in a family minibook.


I used the beautiful Twilight collection by 1Canoe2 cause I’m in love with the soft colors and the delicate floral design it features. I used the dies from the Small Animation Envelope by Motion Crafts to die cut some envelopes with windows.


I put my photos inside those envelops so that you can see a sneak of the photo peeking from the window and then pull it out to see the whole thing.


I assembled my minibook by adding one piece of vellum from Shimelle’s latest collection, Box of Crayons with the kittie’s name spelled using Dear Lizzy rose gold thickers.


Then, I followed up with my envelope, slightly decorated, including the photo of that cat. Depending on the available space I added some tiny bits of journaling on a few of the envelopes.


I mixed pages with horizontal and vertical orientation depending on my photos but I really like that mixed effect cause it makes people more interactive with the minibook as they have to turn it around every time the orientation changes.


It’s really fun to create little projects that get people more involved when they want to check them out. Apart from the orientation, people can pull out the photos and take a closer look at the different pages of this mini.


So that was our little kitty family in this adorable fun and interactive minibook. I hope you enjoyed it and you got inspired to create an interactive minibook to document your happy moments or your favorite pet memories.

Until next time, happy crafting.
