Mini album in Carrying Case!

 Hi friends!
If you know anything about me, it's that I LOVE MINI ALBUMS!! Having recently watched Nicole release a set of Dies that made a 5" mini album with fabulous little pages, I decided I had to make one!! She also designed the dies that make the frames you will see throughout this pot.

On the cover I knew I wanted to make a SHAKER and these dies made it so easy to incorporate one into my book. The other circle doilies added to the delicate look of this book, and I topped them off with miniature flowers and Tonic Nuvo Drops in Lemoncello.

Here is a Top view of the small album, which will easily house twelve pictures. The perfect first gift for a new mom, or grandmother of a new baby girl!

 Each page in this book also has twelve opportunities for either more pictures, or journaling, as each page is a top-loading pocket housing a tag with matching mint-colored twine. The cardstock is nice and heavy, so there is no fear of this paper not holding up to use.

Inside, there is only one sentiment: "Enjoy the Little Things", suitable for the book, and all right-facing pages also have a Gorguss Girl image in a matted frame. These are all hand-colored!

Can you just feel the whimsy?? I love the colors of the Maggie Holmes paper I incorporated in this book, and the images! 

As most of my books are gifts, I like to incorporate a template so the user can easily cut pictures down to size. To add this to my book, I altered a pink clothespin with a small green bow. Perfect! 

Speaking of bows, there is one more on the back page of the book. It tops off a gift tag that reads: 
This will allow the purchaser to write a small note to the recipient, or perhaps mom can note the date of the pictures included.

Did you notice the BOX?

I added this GORGEOUS bow to the spine of my book, so not every box could fit this little album. This led me to design my own!!
I am so happy with the results!!!

Your little book can be set atop a table to enjoy, or gifted inside the little box that surrounds it for safety, but also give a sneak-peek of what's inside!
I just HAD to make sure the box was simple but cute, so I added another shaker! This time, it's a small camera, so the recipient can be reminded that this little gift is to house very special pictures. 
I am happy to make such special items, and hope that you can enjoy them too!
Most of all, I hope that you can 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!
