I created this sweet little mini album for recipes or just for family memories. I started creating apron-shaped mini albums about 3 years ago when I was inspired by a book my friend Elena created for her book club. I've created all kinds of variations ever since, my favorite being this version where we use the Bind It All to make it sturdy and create an easel from the front cover of the book.



Farmhouse Recipe Album Class


February 5, 2012
Scrapbook Daisies in Long Beach, CA


February 25, 2012
Cool Scrapbook Stuff, Poway, CA

Create a handmade, apron-shaped mini album with Crate Paper's adorable Farmhouse paper collection and the Bind It All machine. We'll layer stickers, use vintage ephemera, and adorable buttons to set the warm, country tone in this album. Use it as a scrapbook or to hold recipes–the cover flips to the back to create an easel to stand the book up.

Please bring: Bind It All if you have one, assorted dry adhesive or pva (no Zip Dry or water based glues please Рthey make the chipboard swell), scissors, paper trimmer, glue dots or hot glue.

Here are some more photos — check out the cool vintage flash cards!!!
