I hope all of my mom and grandma friends had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday!!!
A friend recently had a baby boy and I made this mini for her.
I started out with a chipboard album from Michaels that was burlap on one side of each page. I flipped every other page over to have a burlap cover and back, as well as the middle two pages both burlap.
I cut out the boy pieces from my Cricut Imagine Nursery Tails cart at 2-3 inches each.
I painted the edges of the book pages with a bright blue and inked the images with the same color blue ink pad.
I covered these pages with a green leaf paper from my stash. I cut out a star from George and trimmed off the pieces that hung a little over. I included a photo mat on the next page for a crib photo right next to the key information (height, weight, length and date). I included a little twine.
I used a brown patterned paper for photo mats and pop dotted these baby boy images to the edges.
I like to make a pocket in all of my mini albums and add tags and small pieces of matching papers for additional photos and notes. I used my ATG gun to adhere the sides and bottom of the pocket to the page.
I added another photo mat and image to the last page.
I put some brown paper on the back of the album and tied ribbons to the rings.
This mini album can be used as a brag book for mom or grandma!!
I am sharing this project over at The Bug Bytes today also!!
