Class project: Paw Planner

Here are a few photos of an upcoming class project at Memory Bound: Paw Planner. This is a mini-album (8x8) for keeping pet information (favorite things, medical information, etc.) and photos. The idea behind this project is to provide a place to store the information you collect about your pet -- vaccination records, vet visits, food preferences, etc. If you need to leave your pet with a sitter, this little book could go along as a handy reference.

Before class, I'm collecting the names of each person's cat or dog so that I can provide a personalized name label for the front of the album. :-)

I'm also asking everyone to bring along rabies tags, and we'll hang them on the mini-album just for fun. (What else do you do with those tags, anyway?!)

Each section of the album includes an information page and a pocket page, as well as plenty of space for photos.

Some of the pages open up to provide more room for photos. I included a few of my favorite pet quotes, too.



I created journaling blocks/charts for each person to fill in so that the album will be completely customized for each cat or dog.

I've been looking forward to doing a class like this for a long time! I'm excited that it's coming up very soon. Classes with pet people are always the best! :-)

What a neat idea to have a reference booklet for your pet. It looks really pretty! Good luck with your class.

Janet, this is too cool! What a gorgeous album and how sweet of you to make special nameplates for all the students. :) Any chance we can convince you to do an online version for us?? :D

I love it! If I lived nearby, I'd so be in this class! Very cute idea to use the rabies tags, by the way. :)

Darnit, I JUST threw away Daisy's old rabies tag YESTERDAY, and NOW I see this;)

I did save Reuben's tag off his collar when he died, though, and will scrapbook it just like we did Max's a few years ago. Maybe I'll do a whole mini book of remembrances of Reuben and can hang the tag off the ring.
