Baby Boy Mini

Hi - Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway!!  I hope all the mom's and grandma's had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday!!

A friend recently had a baby boy and I made this mini for her.

I started out with a chipboard album from Michaels that was burlap on one side of each page.  I flipped every other page over to have a burlap cover and back, as well as the middle two pages both burlap.

I cut out the boy pieces from my Cricut Imagine Nursery Tails cart at 2-3 inches each.

I painted the edges of the book pages with a bright blue and inked the images with the same color blue ink pad.

I covered these pages with a green leaf paper from my stash.  I cut out a star from George and trimmed off the pieces that hung a little over.  I included a photo mat on the next page for a crib photo right next to the key information (height, weight, length and date).  I included a little twine.

I used a brown patterned paper for photo mats and pop dotted these baby boy images to the edges.

I like to make a pocket in all of my mini albums and add tags and small pieces of matching papers for additional photos and notes.  I used my ATG gun to adhere the sides and bottom of the pocket to the page.

I added another photo mat and image to the last page.

I put some brown paper on the back of the album and tied ribbons to the rings.

This mini album can be used as a brag book for mom or grandma!!

Thanks Pam for having me on your my blog today!!  You can see more of my work on my blog HERE.
