I was brave over the weekend and tackled some mini albums using the 3:1 pitch wires I got at Zipp Outlet. I will say it was a bit of a challenge to get the holes all punched and if I didn't have a Crop-O-Dile Big Bite I'm not sure I would have been able to finish them.
I used some of the Graphic 45 Mother Goose line for the little albums and it was test of my patience on using the papers for a 4" album. I also had to watch the embellishment on the inside because the album couldn't be too thick. Since people don't generally comment on my craft projects anymore I will just post the pictures and y'all can just see how it came out.

Close up of the front. I used LiquiTex on the flowers to help them keep their shape after I manipulated the petals like I wanted.
