Happy Father’s Day! (Plus a Mini Book Tutorial)

I have been making so many fun things to help celebrate Dad’s Day :). I’m pretty sure there are veeeeery few Dads who visit here, but I do know of at least two (hi Dad and Chris!), so for those of you who ARE reading – I hope you are having a splendid Father’s Day!! Here are some tokens of appreciation for all the dads in my life :).

Here’s a page for my Dad, using the Dads Rule kit , by Shabby Miss Jenn.

And this is the card I made for him, using lots of goodies from

I made this page in honor of my Father in Law, who I have known since high school, and who passed away shortly after Chris and I were married in 2003. His memory is still very much alive with us today!

Hybrid Mini Book Tutorial

Hybrid Mini Album using Dads Rule Album by SMJ Instead of making a card for Chris this year, I created this hybrid mini album, using the Dads Rule quick album by Shabby Miss Jenn. I really love how she put all of these pages together, and I didn’t want to change a thing! I just added lots of photos of Gabe with his daddy, resized the pages down to 3″x3″ and printed them out on two sheets of matte photo paper. I also printed some elements from the Dads Rule kit for decorating the front of the album :). To make the pages, I just used 5 sheets of textured, self adhesive cardstock from a neutral Mat Stack (by DCWV). I cut them into 3.25″x6.5″ strips, folded them in half and stuck the adhesive sides together to make a little book. After I decorated the outside of the book, I used some of the leftover pieces of cardstock to make a little binding for the book. Then I used double sided tape to adhere the printed pages inside the mini book. Lastly, I sanded the edges of the covers, binding and all of the pages. Oh, and I also made the little card that comes with the Dads Rule quick album (not pictured).

    Jess, you are a master! Well done! I recognize that old fisherman in the first photo. He sure looks happy! What a great shot! You did a great job on all of this. I bet your Dad and Chris were both pleased. I’m glad you like my poetry blog. thanks for the link to your friend. I like her blog too and will add it to my blog roll on Kathie’s Poet Tree.
