I thought I'd share the mini album I promised to show you, plus a few other baby goodies. There's nothing like hand-making something special for someone you care for, am I right? It's the best feeling the whole time I'm making it.
Last week I shared the keepsake box here. This is where the baby album goes, but Jen can use the box for anything she likes. Everything here is made with her baby's color scheme: Pinks, golds, and creams. Naturally, the papers I used are from Graphic 45. I actually combined four different collections from my stash. I love that Graphic 45 keeps their palette pretty uniform so we can do things just like this.
Something you may not know about me: Back in the day, I sold handmade baby items like blankets, bibs, burp cloths, and lots of other little treasures. I still have some Nettie's Blankets tags which come in handy on occasion. This sweet flannel fabric is from my local JoAnn's store. I used a pink flannel on the back side. The blanket is a little smaller than crib size and the two burp cloths measure 14" x 18" each. The blanket is just the right weight and warmth for a light covering for baby and the burpies are thick enough to absorb, um... "stuff" without it going through.
I used Graphic 45's Ivory Tags and my Cinch machine to bind them together to make this sweet little mini album. The collections I used are Baby 2 Bride, Gilded Lily, Precious Memories, and Little Darlings. They worked perfectly together.
The baby album was so much fun to make. I can't wait until Jen has her baby and puts some photos in here. I used mixtures of chipboard and baby embellishments, die cuts and lots of varieties of ribbon.
And let's not forget the card. A simple and elegant A2 size, with matching papers and embellishments.
I hope you've enjoyed it. I don't get the opportunity that often to make baby things, so when I finally get to I thoroughly enjoy it.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
