Recently, a dear friend of mine turned the big 5-0, and I wanted to make him a special mini album to commemorate the event. Maya Road’s fabulous 5-ring binder album was the perfect size for documenting all the photos I had of a recent visit he made to see me out in NC.

I had a ton of photos, but by utilizing all 9 pages of the album, along with a few pocket envelopes on the inside, I was able to include all of them. Love that Maya Road carries some albums with lots of pages, and love how easy this was to put together, thanks to Therm O Web’s amazing line-up of adhesives.

Here’s a little peek at how I constructed my pages.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb MayaRoadAlbum Tut1

My absolute favorite go-to adhesive for covering chipboard pages with patterned paper is Therm O Web’s SuperStick Glue Stick. Simply apply a thin, even coat of glue stick over the entire surface to be covered, and then add your decorative paper. I also used the glue stick to adhere the large journaling tablet papers to the center of each page.

On the cover, and several of my inner pages, I added Maya Road kraft library cards and envelopes. The cards were a great spot to tuck some hidden journaling, and the envelopes did double duty as housing for extra small photos, too. Since the cards and envelopes will be getting extra wear and tear as the journaling cards are taken in and out, I wanted to make sure they will stay firmly in place.

So those pieces were affixed using Therm O Web SuperTape™, and they are going nowhere.

To finish off the cover, I added some stickers and stamp images to one of Maya Road’s canvas tags. Machine stitching across the stickers keeps everything permanently in place, and to adhere the tag, I used Therm O Web 3D Zots™ adhesive dots for a bit of extra dimension and a super firm hold.

Here’s a look at a few of my inner pages. I tend to stick to a uniform design throughout my album to keep things cohesive, but change up my papers and embellishments for a bit of interest.

You can see how I used the kraft library cards and envelopes for hidden journaling and photos. By adhering only three sides to my photos, re-enforcing them with stitching and leaving the tops open, I was able to create pockets for slipping in the cards. The pocket envelope on the right was used to house extra photos.

    In the past I used the fusible interfacing a lot. I’ve gotten away from sewing much so I don’t use the interfacing as much as I once did. I do use the spray sometimes to hold material that I’m putting on my greeting cards.

    I’ve certainly used quite a bit of Heat N Bond over the years, along with clear adhesive dots. Thanks for making such great products. Of course, I’m interested in winning and trying more of your products which I ‘m confident are great.

    Love your special memory book. I’m celebrating a 50th birthday of a good friend this coming week, as we go off on a special trip. Would be fun to make such a book to give to her. Thanks for the inspiration.
