Baby Mini-Album

Hi Friends! Here is a baby mini album that I made for a friend of mine. She had a little girl. I super love this pape that I bought from JoAnn's. The album is made from chipboard. The cover and pages come from My friend didn't have a name picked out so I told her that once he decided, I'd put the baby's name on the front.

My Mom told me that I should make something to put on my crafts that said that it was homemade. So, here is what I made to put on the back.

I stickled a heart onto this clear tag that I had bought from Wal-Mart years ago! The pocket that the tags are in is a flattened toilet paper tube covered with scrapbook paper. The tags pull out and are great for adding journaling or more pictures. I inked the edges of the album.

The butterfly is cut using New Arrival cartridge.

I just love lavendar and green together!!! The hearts comes from George cart.

I love this duckie paper. I made some diaper invitations once when I helped with a duckie themed baby shower. All of the cuts are from the New Arrival cartridge. I ran the duckie through my paper crimper.

I made this fold out to display some pictures and tags. Embossed the It's a Girl box using my Cuttlebug. The baby rattle again comes from the New Arrival.

Here it is folded and tied shut with some ribbon. Made the flower on the opposite page with the Cricut. I think that the flower is from George cart but not to sure. Added a crystal gem to the center for some sparkle.

The BABY squares were cut using the George cartridge. It is the signs with the sticks cut off. I glittered them for sparkle!

I seperated the two pages into quadrants using the white rick rack. Used the buttons to add a final end to the rick rack. I stamped the heandprints and the cutie pie circle. Pop dotted them to add interest. You can hardly see it but on the right page at the very top square is a cut out of a stork. It is a cut from New Arrival.

I wanted to add a little bit of blue somewhere in the album. I embossed these with the cuttlebug. Precious and the flower came from Plantin Schoolbook. Added a little bit of blue ribbon to tie the two pages together.

I made the envelope from (I think) Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cart. I added a gift card in the envelope for the parents to be to buy something that they needed and didn't have yet. The footprints are from New Arrival.
It was so much fun putting this together. I am going to work on another baby album for another friend who is expecting a boy. I'll post pictures when I am done.
Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
