Remember the baby card I made a few posts ago for our neighbors that had a baby boy? If you missed it, you can view the card here. Well, I had to get them a little gift to go with the card and I thought to myself: self....why buy something when I can make something for them! And that's when I figured that I would try my hand at a mini chipboard album since I've wanted to do one for quite some time now and watched countless videos on how to do them on youtube during my surgery recovery.
This would probably be a good time to get a cuppa something, lol. I've got a lot of photos and some descriptions to go along with each photo! You'll have to be kind though, as this is the first time I'm photographing a mini and had no idea really had to capture it just right. So here goes...the front cover:
The stamp is from the same set as mentioned above. I found these Making Memories metal stickers at Tuesday Morning and thought they were perfect. Mom can use the tag to journal or add a small pic on the tag. Next page I just matted a small square for a baby pic - the stamp is from the TPC Beautiful Baby Boy clear stamp set as well. I colored the outline of the star in Copics.
Open this up and voila! Two photo mats with a little bling to accent the pics Mom chooses to include here.
Next page is for another tag to journal on, or to add some important things like a newspaper clipping or a lock of hair. I made the flower using a Prima flower and a Recollections flower together. The swirls were cut on my Cricut and accented by some bling.
Next up: Just a page to add a photo of the baby. The flourished metal corners are stickers by Momenta.
Another page to add a darling photo of the baby.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
