Vintage Western (Chuck Wagon) Mini's here!!!

After a long couple of months, my vintage western-themed mini album is's the reveal, and I'm so thrilled with how this one turned out!!!

Ready for 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:

So...where's the album?  Inside, of course!  The covers of the mini album form the canopy of the chuck wagon.  Removing the album is simple...all you have to do is lift the canopy.  Check out some of the pages from inside the album:

Here's the best part...due to the popularity of my Vintage Camera Mini Album, I knew this one was going to be a hit...especially because of the lack of western-themed albums out there.  Soooo...I have a pattern available right now for this album!  That's partially why it took me so long to get this album done, but you're all worth it ;)

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.

Cheers ;)
