Life is Better With You
LIFE IS BETTER WITH YOU Mini Album by Andrea Lake
Hi Friends! Andrea with you today sharing a PAWsome mini album made with the ‘Pet Shoppe’ main collection along with the Dog and Cat extensions. These papers and embellishments are just perfect to create beautiful projects about your pets. I created a hidden hinges mini album of my dog Astro using the ‘10 Nested Dog Paw’ cut file by Sandi Idleman. 
I cut the paw shape in two different sizes for the covers and the inside pages. You will find patterned papers from all three mini collections in this album. I added machine stitching details around the edges of each one of the pages and created a hidden hinges binding for this mini album. I added a strip that wraps the album around from the back cover to the front and used some Velcro to keep it closed.
I then added pictures of Astro enjoying his new backyard. He’s back to chasing squirrels and playing with his neighbor dogs on the other side of the fence. He can play and run whenever he wants. Once the pictures are selected, it’s time to embellish. Embellishing is my favorite part of the creative process. I used foam, chipboard, and cardstock stickers, bits & pieces, decorative brads, and enamels dots from the collections to decorate the album. 
I’ve been dying to take more and more pictures of Astro playing in the yard and the ‘Pet Shoppe’ collections are so much fun to work with. Have you made any projects with ‘Pet Shoppe’ yet? I would love to see your projects with your best friends.
