Top Note Mini Photo Album

I made this little photo album a few weeks ago but just now had the chance to post it. It also qualifies for the DCBD challenge #126 this week, to use your Big Shot:


I used the Top Note die and cut two pieces of cardboard from a package of DP, and four coordinating pieces of DP and glued them all together. Then I die cut some pieces of Confetti White for the inside pages. I decorated the front and punched a hole through all the pages and used two buttons threaded front & back (I'll show you later) and then added some photos to the album:




These photos are from a party my sister had for my nephew when he went to Montana to live/work for a big game lodge thingy (not sure what they call it). And being in Pennsylvania, that's a long, long way from home! So they really don't "fit" the title of the album (at least to my sister, they are not "Happy Days"!), but they were the most recent ones I had! Journaling can be done on the backs of the pages. Here are some pix of how it is fastened together:

More pages can be added just by untying the string. Thanks for looking today!

  • Stamps: Happy Everything
  • Paper: Urban Garden DP, Confetti White, Chocolate Chip
  • Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
  • Acc: Cropadile, Buttons Latte, Cordoroy Buttons, Top Note & Big Shot, Felt Fusion Two, Valet Ribbon, String


  1. What a clever creation ... thanks so much for sharing!!!

  2. Great idea, I make one for my niece's wedding. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh I love this! The paper and the buttons and string are so pretty together! Great pictures too!

  4. What a super album and I love how you can just string on new pages!

  5. Super use of the top note die! I'm going to have to try this one out! Thanks for playing along

  6. This is an awesome project, LeAnne! I love it!


  7. What a sweet idea! I love how you assembled everything and the buttons joining it all together!

  8. WOW'za... what a busy stamper!! Love this idea with the Top Note die... Just amazing!!! Have a great Mother's Day Weekend... Smiles! :)

  9. Very cute idea Leanne! thanks for playing along with the Diva's!


  10. LeAnne...this clever idea could not have come at a better time. My sister asked me to put together a little booklet for a teacher who is retiring soon. She (my sister, who by the way happens to have the same name as you, spelled different) has a lot of text along with a couple of photo's she would like to include. This mini photo album is just the ticket! Thanks so much for sharing!! And, thank you for your wonderful comment on my blog. I'll be back to see what other goodies you have. *smiles* Hugs! Sazzy

  11. Fabulous!!! I'm working on something similar... thanks for the ideas!
