Some dear friends of mine from church recently welcomed a new great-granddaughter, Sophia Elizabeth, born Feb. 14! I was going off to Scrap and Spa, in Union Pier, Michigan, for my annual scrappy weekend and a mini album was the perfect project to take!
I started with an 8x8 acrylic album I have had so long I don't remember the brand! I chose Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe collection with lots of embellies from Flamingo Scraps and my stash.
|I really love working with acrylics though it can be a challenge to work out both sides looking neat!!|
|This is my finished cover -- I fussy cut the princess, added Prima bling, buttons, and made a charm of their songbird tiles!|
|I just love the Studio Calico Wood Veneer Potty People on this page -- a Four Generation picture is so special!|
|I recently found an old manual typewriter at a thrift store -- $5 and a new ribbon and I was in business!|
Here I made jewelry hang tags with time, weight, and length on them.
I made plenty of tags of all sizes to tuck behind photo mats and on pages!
|The page on the left is Webster's Pages Sunday Picnic with Prima flowers and leaves. It coordinated beautifully with Emma's Shoppe!|
|Prima Trinkets by Marion Smith, seambinding, garment pins, pearls, Maya Road Trinket Pins, Crate Paper Bingo Chips, and miscellaneous embellies and trims ornament these pages!|
|On the back cover, I used a Maya Road stamp.|
|One of my favorite things about making minis is lavishing ribbon and trims on the binding rings and tucking in charms!|
My friends loved this little book and I had such fun making it!! I got some other projects done while in Michigan -- can't wait to share them with you! Thanks for Looking!
