Hello everybody! Happy spring! :) Isn't it nice now that it's not so cold anymore and you actually get to enjoy the sun? I love it! :) It's nice to go sit outside for a drink or go for a walk in the park ... I'm enjoing these sunny days!
While I was still pregnant I made a mini album for my baby girl, but I didn't get to share it here just yet, so I thought I would do that today. :)
I wanted this album to be bright, sparkly and full of girly things like flowers, lace, butterflies etc., so you will see lots of those through album. At the same time I didn't want to over-embellish the album, because I wanted there to be lots of room for bigger photos as well.
Most of the papers I used in this mini album came from Echo Park Sweet girl paper pad and My mind's eye Ooh la la paper pad, but I also used papers from other MME pads and some papers from my stash.
First I will show you some pictures of the album (sorry because the quality isn't the best) and at the bottom of the page there's a video of the album as well (again, sorry, because the quality of the video isn't the best).
Anyways, here's what the album looks like ...
This is the cover of the mini album. As you can see I used lots of different flowers, some butterflies, lace and trims to decorate it. The big white rose and the yellow flower are from I am roses and the rest are from my stash. My baby's name (Amadeja) was spelled with Making memories glittery alphabet stickers. Butterflies are 3D stickers from K&Co and the metal heart that is "peeking" from behing the flowers is from All my memories. The sentiment (adore) is a chipboard piece from Make it crafty.
Here's a close-up of the details.
I just love those flowers and those butterflies. <3 p="">
These MiC sentiments are great too.
Here are the first and second page of the mini album.
As I said, I didn't want to over-embellish the papges. I decorated these two pages with some brads, flower sticker and some cut-outs from the Echo park paper collection. The second page has a flap, but I didn't take picture of it. Please check the video (scroll down) to see what it looks like opened up.
These are third and forth page of the mini album.
On the third page I created a booklet (sort of) and on the fourth page there's a double flap. Please scroll down to check the video to see what the pages look like opened up.
To decorate those pages I used some lace, glittery dots, banner and flower sticker.
Here are the fifth and sixth page of the mini album.
I used some more flowers and butterfly stickers. brads and a metal heart to decorate the pages. Sixth page has a triple flap and you can see what it looks like opened up in the video.
Here are seventh and eighth page of the album.
Seventh page is probably my favourite page in the mini. It's a waterfall page that I decorated with a butterfly and one of the "plates" from Pinkpaislee. On the eighth page I created quite a big pocket and decorated it with some lace from crafty ribbons and a cute owl tag from Echo Park.
Ninth and tenth page of the album.
Another pocket page with a flap that is kept close with magnet (see video for details) and 10th page is just a regular flap page. To decorate these 2 pages I used some stickers from Sticko phrase cafe and Docraft and a metal heart from All my memories.
Eleventh and twelfth page of the album.
On the eleventh page I sort of created a booklet and decorated it with another Sticko phrase cafe stickers. It's kept close with some twine. On the twelfth (last) page of the mini album I created a criss cross pocket and decorated it with some pearls, butterflies and handmade flower.
Every second page has a big ocket to hold bigger tags and on each of those tags I stamped with different stamp from The Greeting Farm (from Ever after kit and Magical friends stamp set). Here's a picture of the tags and album (the picture was taken before my baby was born, and because of that there isn't a name on the cover yet). Images are embossed with Ranger's Queen's gold embossing powder.
And finally, here's the video of the album (again, I'm sorry, because the quality isn't the best).
So, this is the album I made for my baby girl. I hope she will like it! :)
Have a great day!
