A Mini Album Gift

Made by Annette West

This is my latest mini book - I made it for a friend who has had a tough year and is moving, starting a new job, life etc and hopefully it will cheer her up! :)



The photos are of my friend, VJ and her two boys and were taken by Sam Ellis, an amazing photographer, who is also a friend. The instructions for making the mini album can be found at Craft Weekly but I made my own envelopes for my version rather than buying them.

I used three 7Gypsies cd mailers for the main book and a 7Gypsies clasp for keeping it closed. The papers are the Scenic Route Cape Town and Laurel Collections
