I have made several of these books but only filled one with photos so far. They are made using one sheet of paper and some white/vanilla/cream cardstock for the pages. I didn't have any 12" x 12" card suitable for making the pages so I had to improvise and use some paper from an A3 sketch pad I had but the end result is the same.
The belly band keeps it closed.
Supplies used are all Stampin' Up unless stated otherwise.
Punches, banner, butterfly, 1" circle, 1 3/8" circle, oval 1 3/4" x 7/8", scalloped oval, petite petals, itty bitty punches.
Papers - polka dot parade, fresh prints.
White paper and crystals are not SU.
Here are some of the other mini albums I have made using Stampin' Up papers and Basic Grey papers. The dog one is slightly smaller than the others and the camera one, slightly bigger due to bad measuring LOL!
