I made this mini album while being sick as it was for my niece's baby shower gift and needed to be started and finished!
I'm not that happy with it - only because it's so "clean" looking. I had one 12x12 and one 8x8 pad of the Graphic 45's "Little Diary" paper line. Also because the baby is supposed to be a boy, I could only use the "boy" papers in each. There are not a lot of pages in these pads so I was very restricted, and I had no other paper line that would have matched the "Little Diary" either. So, had to beg, scrape and do what I could to fill it.
I am currently making a slideshow of this album and posting it on my YouTube channel soon.
I used Kathy Orta's (PaperPhenomenon) "Sophistication" album instructions for this album - I do not think it should be called a mini album it's so big. Anyway, here it is:
|Front of album with closure|
|Close-up of front - the papers say it all!|
|Used flat backed beads & lace on album cover|
|Perfect sentiment for this album|
|Some charms I had in my stash added to silver chain|
|Lace, TH ideology clock, velum tag & baby tag from paper line|
|Spine is wrapped with white ribbon between each page section|
|Ribbons attached by tying|
|Simple tag inserts|
|Plenty of space for photos|
|Only addition to cream page is strip of paper on left|
|Pocket page on left & plain page on right, then tag pockets|
|Used some journal tags from stash|
