Marks Paper Company : My Pre-K Field Trip Mini-Album

My Pre-K Field Trip Mini-Book

I had so much fun creating this little mini-album for Zoey (told from her perspective too!) featuring photos from one of her first field trips last year at preschool. The patterned papers and die-cuts that I used are by Marks Paper Company and they are from the English Garden Collection.

The clear acrylic album cover that I used is one by D.Reeves Design House. For the inside pages I simply matted my pictures to cardstock or patterned papers and was good to go.

The adorable felt pieces in the book were created by Terri Davenport. I got a package in the mail last week and it was a wonderful RAK (random act of kindness) of handmade felt embellishments from Terri, I of course had to use some right away! Thank you so much Terri, I love them all! =) The glittered mini-alphabet letter stickers are by Making Memories and the phrase sticker strips are by Creative Cafe. I used a Fiskars border punch along the edge of some of my inside pages to add some interest and used my zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine for some of the pages as well. Large alphabet letter stickers are by American Crafts. A pretty simple mini and I tried to keep it "kid friendly" because the book is meant for Zoey to look at and to read.
