My new passion ~ Mini Albums!!

I have definitely found a new Love!! Mini albums are so fun to make! You don't have to worry about filling a big space but yet can fit alot of little photos! So much fun!! My 2 yr old son is having a blast looking at this!
Click on Photos, for a closer look!
Pages 1 and 2

This acrylic train album is by Creative Acrylics. I covered it mostly using My Mind's Eye Papers.(29th Street Market~I love these papers!) I used lots of goodies in here too! Let's see, some Inque Boutique stamps and chipboard(the smoke coming out of the stack), lots of buttons, a Melissa Frances Resin frame, Pink Paislee CS letters and numbers, Heidi Swapp ghost stars, Prima black crystals, Cosmo Cricket Chipboard, hemp cord, felt stars, brads, washers, an Inkadinkado Ticket Stub Stamp(which I didn't ink the middle wording, so I could add my own!), Sandylion stickers and lots and lots of ribbons!
Pages 3 and 4

I had the die cut train track for awhile and decided to attach it to the bottom of the train for a little more fun and dimension as well as the chipboard swirls I added for the smoke. I also adhered a clear button with some yellow DMC floss to make it appear like a light on the front of the train.
Pages 5 and 6

This acrylic is very sturdy and you get a nice size album for only around $13! It has another 2 pages that I still have to add. So if you are in the market for an acrylic album, check out their selection. They are well worth it!!

The papers I used were double-sided, so I only needed to add paper to one side of each train. I used a simple clear drying glue stick to adhere the paper. Easy Peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Hugs, Melissa

Very Sweet! I haven't seen an album that shape yet...go you! Hey say "hi" to Cheri W. for me, I've visited her blog but cannot comment cuz I'm not on blogspot and haven't figured out the open ID thing :-(
Keep up the good work!
