Today I'd like to let you all know that I am in seventh heaven. I have been spending the week with my daughter and new grandson, Mason. He is just the cutest little baby (if I do say so myself) and has a great temperament. I couldn't help but be the boasting grandma and share a picture. So hheerree''ss Mason!
He's 13 days old and already trying to ham it up!
So on to today's project. I made a mini album of the photos from my daughter Ashley's baby shower. I didn't get pictures of everything because I'm not that adept at posting and remembering to take pictures of the process. Soooo..... practice will make perfect. The pictures aren't that great but I thought I'd try and share what I've got.
All papers are from DCWV's Baby Boy paper collection. The binding is a piece of grunge paper that I painted with acrylic paints then distressed with TH distress inks.
The inside cover (that's my daughter and son-in-law) and the right side is the baby shower invitation attached to a flap piece that opens up. (You'll see it in the next picture). The inside holds places for more pictures. The over all mini album is made of a craft paper bag that I got at Michael's. I saw a great video series at My Sisters Scrapper on making a vertical paper bag mini album. Ginger is an awesome teacher and makes the project so easy to create. Thanks Ginger for all your videos!
Here is a photo of the inside of the flap.
Each page also has a tag that pulls out at the top. I punched a circle and stamped a baby face from a Peachy Keen stamp set.
Now this is the very back of the book which shows the waterfall photo mats I created. There are 8 pages holding 16 photos approximately 3x3 inches. On the left shows a pocket I made that holds a tag. There are a total of 6 pages which have a flap that opens, a pocket that holds a tag, and a large tag that slides out from the top. I can tell you that this mini album holds a TON of pictures.
My daughter loved it! I'll be starting another album when I get home of all my grandson's pictures. We can't stop snapping pictures. :-)
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love it if you think about following me and leaving comments. Its such an encouragement.
God bless and have a grateful day,
Anita aka Nit
