My Latest Mini - MY Dog Honey

Hey Y'all!

Well, I have completed my next doggie dedicated mini.  This one is for my princess Honey.  Honey is a rescued dog.  I got her and her sister when they were just pups.  They had been found on the side of the road laying next to 2 of their dead siblings.  When I heard their story and saw they cute little faces I could not let them go without a home for a day longer.  I brought them home with me and they adapted quickly.  Honey's sister...Freckles, sadly had bad health and we lost her.  She had a wonderful home while she was alive and we enjoyed many walks together and playing in the back yard.  BUT, this book is for Honey goes.

I used the Bo Bunny DOG album and I added extra pages and kept the back board that came in the packaging to add more stability.  I used all kinds of doggie themed ribbons on the rings that I bound the book with.  I used the DCWV Pet stack, Around The Block papers that I got on a VERY good clearance sale and I also used some punch outs and papers from the Deja Views Dog Stack.  I used some rubons that I purchased a good while ago from ABC Distributing.  I got them while on clearance as well.  I used glossy accents to highlight some of the rubons and some of the paws on the inside pages.  I used some home made shimmery mists in blue and some flowers by the Paper Studio and Prima.  I also found these great little journal spots at Big Lots.  I used them a couple times in the book.  I found some great paw prints brads too that I used for the centers in some of the flowers.  I can't remember what brand they are.  I found some glittery dog bones at Michaels as well.  Sadly it was the last pack!!  I also used my storybook Cricut Cartridge to cut out some letters and I used my EK Success paw print border punch.  I used some bling from various lines and some Inkadinkadoo stamps that has the cutest little pooch!!  I made some stick pins and added them in various places.  Well, I guess that's about it.  If you have any questions on any of the products I used and I didn't mention please feel free to ask or just comment!!

Thank you for looking. 

Here's the slideshow of the entire book.


  1. This is great! I've seen some other albums where the edge of the pages was letters and it spelled a word. I'm amaze that you cut the pages yourself. This is a great keepsake about Honey.

  2. Awesome job- what a great mini album to tell the story of your pup. Our dogs are all rescues- it is so rewarding to give them a home & a family & they usually are very grateful & become that furry family extension. This is a wonderful idea to do. I will have to try a couple for our furry family members. TFS
