Baby Boy Mini Album

Hiya crafty friends!

This weekend I traveled up to PA (outside Philadelphia) to a dear friends baby shower. There were 6 years between our visits, and it was so good to see her! I gave her a keepsake album and I want to share it with you today.


That Tim Holtz bird and cage die has gotten a lot of use over the last year! I do love it and can't wait for his new dies to come out over the next few weeks. :) I saw the phrase on Pinterest, in the form of a huge vinyl sticker over a baby crib. I just love it!


The chipboard album is just shy of 6x6, and I included photo corners for each mat.


The paper is 12x12 and 6x6 My Mind's Eye Portobello Road, from the (in)famously glittered "Lost and Found" line. I used silver Stickles over all the factory-glittered bits to seal them in. It made the glitter lines taller on the pages, but the alternative was to ignore it and have Stacy swear under her breath each time she picked the book up.


The banners are all made from the sticky, prepackaged chipboard letter banners from the PR line. I like the thickness but not the letters, so I stuck them on the backs of random scraps and cut them out. I used a needle to thread twine through the corners and finished with the tops of pearl brads. They're all popped up on 1/16" foam dots. The birds are coated with Glossy Accents for a little pop! on the page.


That's it for now! Thanks for visiting today.

Cheers,
Susan
