Hello Everyone,

Today I thought I would give you something a bit different and put to you a Double page scrap layout with photos of my adult neice and nephew when they were children.  I hope they forgive me. 🙂

Sometimes older photos given by family to an aunt are not the best for anything, but I am happy with the result of this.  And of course I did my usual flower and bling stuff with it!!




Both pages were started with Bazzill Canvas Fawn, sponge inked around the edge and textured with an aging stamp cube and the word frinds. An 8×8 panel in Bazzill Canvas Vanilla, stamped with background stamps around the edge in placed in the centre of both pages.  Designer paper is torn, inked and rolled to give that burned appearance.

Photos cropped and placed, then the title tiles on both pages and then the flowers and bling till done.  Oh yes the ribbon too.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for calling in, hope you day is going great.
Hugs 🙂

Hi Everyone, I had some very special news on Saturday, my friend had her little girl at 29 weeks, all is well, but our precious baby girl will be in special care for a while and she is tiny tiny.  Mum is doing well!!

This was very unexpected news, so I had to get crafting to make a little paper bag album in honour of this wonderful occasion.  All pink and sugary, sweet and special, with loads of ribbon, flowers, bling and precious girl sayings, soft and feminine to commemorate the biginning of her life.

Front cover gives an idea of what is to come, loads of flowers and loads of ribbon.  She is gorgeous you know, I have a pic of her, and she is more beautiful than the album.

Each page is decorated with special flowers, charms, bling and ribbon.  Each page has written words that are special to the occasion and the first few days after her birth.  And of course we need her vital statistics!! And her first photo!!

Of course we needed a special page for a photo with Mummy and another for a photo with Daddy, because I really feel she is going to be Daddy’s Special Girl in time to come. Oh why wait she is now!!

And of course for a photo of her first bath.  I cannot tell you her name yet, I have not been told, but it will be as beautiful as she is.

And of course a family portrait is always needed, first of many to come I hope. I see this special bundle being loved and protected and perhaps a little spoilt?

Front Cover and back cover opened to see the whole outside at once.  The spine is held together with tied ribbon.  It really is a beautiful little keepsake.

A view from the top to see all the tags inserted in the pockets throughout the album. The tags are for her parents to write their thoughts on, and to write special messages to her.

And a view of the album standing so you can see all the openings in the bags for her proud parents to store all those little keepsakes from her birth and first few days.  I told them to keep only everything and to photograph only everything.  You can never have too many photos or keepsakes, right?

Hope they like it..

Ribbon Mini Album I have been working on for a while.  Made from Bazzil Basics cardstock, papers and ribbon from  Kaszazz. 

 All pieces are DTP inked, the papers cut to resemble ribbon and loads of punched flowers (Carl Kikyou) and ribbon of course.

 Inside left side is put together like a little notebook with 8 leaves held together with ribbon binding at top.  All pages DTP inked with photomat and flowers.

 Accents at bottom of each page of paper and flowers.

 The right hand side of the inside is similar to the left, notebook style with ribbon binding on the side, all pages inked and embellished.

It is designed to carry memories of a seaside or tropical holiday, the perfect themed mini album to show off photos!!
