Carol's Baby album inspired me to finish this one and send it over to Heart 2 Heart for the Moving On Challenge. This album has pages that slide in and out, pages that lift, and tags that can be moved. Keepsakes can be moved from one pocket to another or into an envelope. Oh, and it's for my friend who moves around on horseback! hahaha Oh yeah, and now that it's finished I can be "moving on" to another big project!
The cover is made using the stamp set from the Huntington On the Go Workshop. The Paper is Clementine (retired) and Olive. The button was from stash. The cute embellishment is from CTMH Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold Collection. The gems are, of course....you guessed it....Mocha gems!
Page 1 might also be from the Clementine collection. The sentiment is stamped with a stamp set from the CTMH Art Philosophy Bundle. The page was cut from Artiste along with the faux fence and the decorative cuts to make the fence boards! See the caption for more details on that technique!
Pages 2 and 3 were cut from the Artbooking Cartridge. To get the copper tarnished look, I started with CTMH Terra Cotta cardstock. I smudged over it with Chocolate, Barn Red, Juniper, and gold inks. I colored over the letters with a Barn Red marker.
Page 4 was cut from the Artbooking and
stamped with Crystal Blue and Twilight
inks using the CTMH Artbooking
My Life stamp set.

I filled the pocket with a piece of notepaper cut from Artbooking and stamped with the Take Note Stamp Set. The shapes were all cut from the Art Philosophy from various papers. I welded in shapes from Old West and tied the shaped decorative tags to plain ones. I rubbed Chocolate ink over the Orange cardstock from the DreamPop. The ink really brings out the texture! The middle tag was embossed.
Page 12 includes a little 6 page booklet. In CCR I elongated the shape from Art Philosophy, cut it twice, and folded them over. I stamped all the pages with Universal Backgrounds Stamp, tied it with twine and attached a little lantern from the Illuminate Stamp Set. The sentiment is also from this set.

So, there it is! My Mini-Album meets Smash Book! I think my riding buddy is going to love writing about her horse adventures in here. There is room for pics, journaling, old bridle tags, camping receipts, notes from clinics, tags from tack, brochures from horse fairs, etc! I can't wait to give it to her!
