B is for Biscuit


Two weekends ago we lost our sweet Biscuit from what the vet believes was cardiac arrest due to heart failure. I had yet to make a mini album for him because I assumed I'd have years of photos and memories to choose from. Not wanting to forget the little things about his personality and the love and joy he brought to our home, I put together this mini book.

Deciding on a simple format and working with items from one collection, I printed out my photos and got to work. I made an error in my page size because I didn't leave room for punching holes, so my finished album is 5.5 x 5.5, my photos are printed at 4x4, and the squares of patterned paper are 2x2.














I varied the arrangement of how many squares of patterned paper I used on each page and then included a little embellishment and journaling on almost every page. I added small droplets of gold mist to each page as a finishing touch.

Supplies:
patterned paper, chipboard embellishments, die cuts, puffy stickers - Crate Paper {Wonder}
gold mist - Heidi Swapp
font for journaling - Catalina Anacapa Sans Regular
