Today I want to show you the mini album that I made for a friend of mine. She's expecting a baby boy and I wanted to do something special for her so I did this. :) I made this album from cardstock and plain white envelopes and I used a lot of different embellishments from various brands, but the ribbons are ALL from Crafty ribbons. They have the cutest baby (and also other) ribbons, I just love them. I decided to make the album in blue, yellow and green colours and guess what, I managed to stay away from all the flowers and butterflies. Darn, that was a hard task! Lol. So, here are the pictures of the album (you can click on the pictures if you want to see bigger images) ...
The blue paper is from Provo craft and the green paper is from Heidi Grace. The stars are from my stash and the All my love ribbon is from Crafty ribbons - you can find it here. I also used some gold brads and All about scrapbooking and Make it special foam alphabet stickers. I punched the edge of the green paper with my border punch.
I left the inside of the cover empty so my friend could write something on it if she wanted. On the first page I created two spaces for pictures of the baby. The yellow and blue papers are from Provo craft and the other papers are from Heidi Grace.
Second and third page
I found these cute letters among my stash and I decided to write "sweet baby" with them. :) Over the letters I went with diamond Stickles. Circles and scalloped circles were cut with my Spellbinders' dies. On the right sie you can see the cute "Cute as a button" ribbon and some stars. I cut the bigger ones free-hand and I punched the small ones with my craft punch. In the middle of the bigger star I added a button. The photo corners are made from the papers from Nature collage kit from Artsy collage.
Fourth and fifth page
On the left page you can see some bling and some lovely embellishments. I've had these in my drawer for a while, but never got the chance to use them - til now. ;)Those pretty plates are from Art collection. On the right side I created a pocket for a tag. The buttons are all from my stash and so are the hearts in the top corners and the doily behind the pocket. I used 2 different ribbons on this page - Summer breeze ribbon - twill gold (for the tag) and 25 mm sheer ribbon - dk lime (for the bow).
Sixth and seventh page
On the top left corner on the 6th page I created a small banner with Heidi Grace paper and I wrote "boy" with K&Company La boutique stickers. I also added some small gems from my stash. On the bottom of the page I added the pretty Washing line baby ribbon. On 7th page I first made a small pocket for the tag (again I used Summer breeze - twill gold ribbon for my tag) and then glued a doily and a piece of paper over it. I then framed the circle with Summer breeze ribbon - beads gold. I cut the big star free-hand and the small ones are made with punch. I also used some confetti and pearls from my stash.
Eighth and ninth page
On the 8th page you can see some doily and gems again. :) And I also made a bow from the Summer breeze - zipper lime ribbon. On the 9th page I used some stars and moon foam stickers.
Tenth and eleventh page
I made the 10th page pretty simple too. I made a place for the phote, glued some stars around it and on the top of the page I glued Price ribbon from the Best of British collection. I also added two crystals on the ribbon. I like how the 11th page turned out. :) I used buttons from my stash and Multi dots baby ribbon.
I decided to use some more circles again on my last page. :) The green paper inside the scalloped circles is from Nature collage kit. Around the big circle I glued small stars and I put a crystal to the middle of each of them. I made the bow with a fab yellow ribbon (I LOVE the bright colour - my photo doesn't do it justice) from Crafty ribbons. It's not in the store just yet, but will be next week, so watch out for it. :)
So, that's all from me today. I wish you all a wonderful day! Hugs! xx
