Due to time constraints, I didn't make notes of measurements so there will be no tutorial for this one. I apologize. It was simply made with love. I used Graphic 45's newest baby collection "Precious Memories" with a bit of their older collection "Little Darlings" to fill things out. It's great how well these two collections worked together!
Here's a look at all the pages...lots of photos.

Oh, and I failed to mention earlier: my friend actually asked for two albums. It was easy work making the second one. I simply designed a page for the first one, then repeated all the paper cuts and placed them in orderly piles on a side table. Once the first album was completed, all I had to do was assemble the second one. Piece-o-cake!
I love that I can easily pull together Graphic 45 papers, ephemera cards, pockets & tags, and chipboard to create a gift like this. And I am a thrifty crafter, so for the embellishments I shopped the discount aisle of my local Michael's store and found the most perfectly-matched ribbon assortment as well as the gems & pearls. Everything else is dies, punches, buttons and twine that I already had. Oh, and the kraft album itself? Would you believe I found these at Tuesday Morning for 20¢ a piece? They're Zutter's Bamboo Spine Album. I bought a dozen of them! I had some 3/4" Cinch coils in my stash that worked perfectly with the albums.
Remember, you can always find all your favorite Graphic 45 products at Scrapbook.com. They carry all the Precious Memories collection, including the stamp sets.
Thanks for stopping in today. Have an awesome day!
