Unscripted Perspective

By July 3, 2006General

070306_book I finally completed the mini scrapbook containing Owen & Hannah’s photos (see June 29th post).  I am so happy with the way it turned out.  The album is housed in a mini metal binder (measuring approx. 4 x 3 ¼ inches) from Pine Cone Press.  I used one sheet of patterned paper (Chatterbox) cut into small strips as accents throughout. Bound between each of the photo pages is a tag featuring the “title” of the photo.  They are double-sided, serving as mini "pages".  These tags also utilize one of my favorite new finds, a super cool roller stamp called Footnote from 7gypsies.  The image I chose reads 070306_interior “Limited Edition __ of __”.  Then I was able to go back and fill in the appropriate numbers in sequence.  The mini book holds a total of 28 photos that I had printed wallet size, which worked out perfectly.  The only journaling is featured on the inside of the front cover.  It reads:

“The perspective of a child is different than that of an adult.  Everything seems larger to them.  They notice different aspects of the world around them.  So I decided to let Owen & Hannah 070306_page_17_1 have the camera one morning.  Giving them the ability to catch their perspective on film.  Freezing time, just for a millisecond, capturing what they love best within their world.  Totally unscripted.”  The pages are simply made out of navy cardstock and bound with grosgrain ribbon.  The horizontal slot punch from Stampin’ Up! works perfectly to bind the pages, being that the opening is about the same width as the ribbon.


Owen & Hannah LOVE looking at this book!  They are so proud, knowing that the photos are their own creation.

    Hi Nicole,
    I thought you would be the one to ask. I am looking for a little binder with sheet protectors to make a recipe book. Maybe 5×7? Any suggestions where i might find something like that? I want it to be plastic so that it can be wiped off. Thank you for your time!!!
