Ready for it? ...it's a mini chuck wagon! I built the base of the album using medium and light weight chipboard, wooden dowelling, wood grain patterned paper, a little bit of grungepaper, a few brads and jump rings, a couple of Tim Holtz's small configurations boxes, and a whole lot of patience and creativity :) Features of the base include horse harnesses, a small bench in the front, and a functional cargo box in the back. The rails on the side help to hold the canopy in place. Check it out:
The pattern is a whopping 96 pages long! I make my patterns easy to follow with loads of pictures so that you can start building immediately...there is no need for a video tutorial. The pattern includes instructions for the chuck wagon base, the canopy mini album, and eight different templates for pockets, frames, and picture mats - one for each page of the album. I also tell you exactly what products work best in each step.
To order a copy of the pattern, just click the "Patterns & Such" tab at the top of this page to find all the details. If you'd like a closer look at all of the details of this album, keep an eye on my YouTube channel for a video of this mini, which will be posted soon.
