Cat and Dog mini-albums

It's been a long time between posts, but I haven't had much to share this year... there are a few cards floating around for me to post once I find the scans. But this last few weeks I've been working on a special project - mini albums. These first two are half done and I've got a few more in the works, including a very special one for a gift... so without further ado, here are the pics. Details below.

A few details... the mini albums are 6x7, allowing enough room for binding and using a 6x6 paper pad for decoration. Holes were punched with the cropodile set to just a fraction under 1/2". It's strong enough to easily punch five sheets of cardstock at the same time, minimising the chance of misalignment.
Most of the paper is from the Basic Grey 'Max and Whiskers' 6x6 paper pad, with co-ordinating bits and pieces from my own collection. Both albums were cut from the same stack of 12x12 cardstock, and the offcut was retained for matting. As you can see, the albums are half-done and I'll post the remainder as I finish.
