Today I present to you my latest mini album. To make this mini book, I used Tonic Studios Dies and Lemoncraft papers aptly called: Girl's Little World. I absolutely love the watercolor images in this collection, and thought they were perfect for the type of album I wanted to make.
On the cover, I began with a white base, dotted all along the edge with different colored Nuvo drops. This immediately added to the whimsy of this book. I also used one of the darling images from the collection and highlighted it using Ranger Glossy Accents. To finish it, I also added a small banner topped with the baby's name, and different pastel-colored gems. The little butterflies also decorate the cover with matching wings and little gems.
Here you see a closer view of the mulberry roses I used to decorate the corner of the cover. They are a lovely delicate pink. I also hand colored the butterflies using promarkers.
For the spine of this book, I arranged small flowers and heat embossed them in different colors to match the papers. I also added small pieces of the lovely trims used inside the book, and topped it with an adorable little bow, wrapped in blue twine to match.
Inside the front cover is yet another stunning image. I added small sparkly sequins throughout just to give it a little shine.
The first page will allow mom to introduce her little baby girl with the title : Princess. I fussy cut all the images and added a small butterfly and tiny bird die cuts layered for dimension. Behind the oval frame is also a small pink trim I used throughout this book.
Here is the second page with more adorable images and places for pictures.
Here you see the New Baby photo sleeve I created using Tonic Studios dies, and a small bow from Pink & Main. I also added the mother bunny image here, with an embossed flower and layers of trim, tiny hearts, flowers, and touches of shine.
The opposing page houses a little booklet which fits more pictures. It is also topped with a little girl bunny, altered with glimmer, and grouped with the word Love atop a small heart. I used shimmery soft yarn to create the closure.
On this page spread I added four matching oval frames. Then I decorated the pages with little bunnies from the paper collection, small butterflies and pink embossed cabbage roses , a pinwheel and the title: Fantastic Girl.
Here you can also see the beautiful Daisy Chain Lace from Reneabouquets on the edges of the pages. A small pink heart is also topped with a daisy. I cut these from the lace and used them throughout the book as well.
The next page is so endearing, with the two little girls who appear hugging, such a tender gesture!
I used more small interactive frames, a heart shaped paper clip layered with vellum, beautiful board pieces topped with moonstones, and a darling little flower-filled cup. It reads: Pretty Day.
The opposing page has more frames, a small teddy, and duck. Both are made in the same fashion as the heart. All of the small flowers are fussy cut from the collection. The sentiments read: My Super Girl, and Special Moment. Small pictures may be placed inside.
This layout appears simple, but it houses a little door for more pictures. The left page features little pink shoes. these are grouped with more flowers, and a little blue butterfly. The opposite page is a simple frame that has been bordered with the delicate pink flower trim.
Here is a closer look at the small shoes, and the tab that opens the page. You can also see the dry-embossing on the paper. I used an embossing folder for the added texture.
This page also has a shaker!!!! It is also a door into another picture pocket. I adorned it with the lovely little girl, flowers that serve as a frame, two shiny dragonflies, and a small tab on the corner keeps it closed.
The opposing page also has a clear acetate pocket, topped with more butterfly beautiful board pieces colored to match and topped with small daisies and gems.
Here is the open page, revealing the space for a picture and a dainty heart-shaped garland. I colored each to match the papers.
The very last page houses small tags that can either be used for important milestones, or more pictures. I also topped the pocket with embossed paper and a gorgeous piece of lace. Then I finished it all with more gems.
For the back cover I added a clear pocket cut with Tonic Studios dies, and also added larger tags with beautiful seam binding ties The pocket is layered with a flower swag and a small blue butterfly. On the corner is another beautiful board butterfly colored to match the page and finished with sequins.
I hope you've enjoyed this project share, that you can Be inspired, and Be blessed!
