Welcome baby girl

Today I am sharing a trifold mini album made especially for a friend of mine who is expecting her first granddaughter in November. She already has 3 grandsons. Needless to say, all are anticipating this sweet baby girl’s arrival!

 The album measures 5 3/4 x 10 with a ribbon closure. Flowers are from Petaloo. I used the Echo Park “All Bundled Up” paper line along with the stickers and cut aparts that came with this collection.

This album has stacked pockets that holds photo mats along with photo booklets.
Along with stacked pockets it also has a waterfall folio and pockets which holds more photo mats, booklets and keepsakes.

That is it from me. Enjoy your week ahead -

birthday #2

Hello everyone - jumping in to share a birthday card I made for my grandson who just had his 2nd birthday!

I used an old paper line by Deja Views called All Boy. I adhered pattern paper to red card stock onto a white card base. Punched out some of the card stock elements from the tablet of paper and made a collage out of them. I added some blue twine to the tag. I pulled out my Cricuit and cut out the number 2 from red card stock.

Here's a couple of photos taken from the birthday party - Enjoy!

 He loves shopping carts - probably his favorite birthday present of all!

Can you tell the theme was palm leaves - lol!

Until next week - see you then!

Hi all,
Sharing another mini waterfall folio album I made using an older Authentique paper collection called Remembrance - I think. I had a 6 x6 tablet of loose sheets of paper and a card stock sticker sheet.
This was very easy to put together. I used Kraft card stock to wrap the front, back and spine. I took a cut apart from the collection and mounted it on green cardstock and adhered the 2 sides and bottom to the front cover. I left the top open for a picture to be tucked in. A trio of purple flowers and leaves were adhered to the lower left. The closure is some sheer ribbon from my stash.

 Inside cover is a pocket with some tags and photo booklets made from various cut aparts.

The right inside cover is the waterfall folio. I took a sticker and adhered it to the top of the first photo mat.

 added a sticker which was backed to cardstock to be used as a tuck spot on each photo mat.

Thanks for stopping by. Sweet comments are always appreciated!
Have a great week ahead -
