Happy Tails Cat Mini Album

Our fur babies are so fun to have around the house. They keep us company, and provide lots of entertainment. Have you wondered what you should do with all those photos you have of your special furry friends? Check out BoBunny's Happy Tails collection!

Kitty Mini by Lisa Gregory

With 2 kitties who live in our home, Willow and Bentley deserved a photo album of their own . The Happy Tails Collection was PURRRRRFECT for a kitty mini album!! This is the cover to the album. I created the base of the album using chipboard and covered it with the pattern paper. I added some of the  Happy Tails chipboard pieces and brads. I also added some of the BoBunny blossoms.

On the spine of the album, I punched a hole on top, placed a brad in the hole and used hand dyed ribbon to match the paper and I created jeweled dangles and also used the tags from the 12x12 chipboard set. The theme was anything cats loved. Butterflies, fish and other kitties.

This is the inside of the front cover. I lined the inside of the mini before I added my pages.

I created a waterfall flip card to hold lots of journaling and photos. This creates a lot of "realestate" on 1 page for your photo's and journaling.

 The smaller journaling cards were perfect to create the fillers on the flip cards. Some were used as frames and others were left blank intentionally for handwritten journaling.

Here is another page spread in the mini. Using bits and pieces of the Happy Tails chipboard helped to fill in small spaces and created great designs. Some of the journaled pieces can be altered. I placed the word "Cat' over a the word "Dog". No dogs allowed in this mini!!

  Here is another page. On the right side, I created more flip cards.

And here is a view of a couple of the flip cards on this page.

You can create as many flip cards  as will fit on the page.I created a total of 5.

Here is another page where there is room for more photos and journaling. 

 I cut apart and matted one of the larger journaling cards to create my page "I Love Cats" and added a chipboard flourish.

 Another double page spread.

 This is the last page and inside of the back cover. I thought I would end the mini with sleeping kitties.

This is the back cover.

 This is a view of the mini opened up for a backside view. I really enjoyed using all of the Bobunny embellishments to create this mini that will hold precious memories of our 2 little fur babies.

  11. This is so granddaughter would so want this, she loves her kitties & believe me they love her just as much. The funny part is the cats were her parents before she came along! Over the past 11 years the 4 cats they had just made her their world we've had a few pass & have adopted a couple more just amazing how they love her, she has a very loving heart & I think they can just tell plus I think her 2 little brothers tease them & her room is a safe haven for them. Gonna have to locate these products for her so she can keep all her kitties memories old & new. Thanks for sharing, yesterday was her birthday wish I'd seen this before!!!
