I just wanted to share a couple of mini albums that I've been working on for my Niece and Nephew. This first one is for my Niece Gianna, I wanted to make her a baby album, but I don't have any baby pictures of her, so I put it together without the pictures...which was very challenging for me. I just want to warn you that this post is pretty long and has lots of pictures.
This is the first page. I wanted to leave enough room on this page for some large pictures. I absolutely love the Graphic 45 envelope album, but everything has to be pretty flat on the inside, or it won't close...so I wasn't able to make it very dimensional, which stinks because I love dimension.
Here is page two...I did a lot of fussy cutting on these pages, plus the photo mats slide out from behind the bunnies. And I put some photo mats inside the envelope, for some more pictures.
Here's the third page...all the tags can be pulled out and I added journaling lines of the back.
Once again all the tags can be pulled out and journaled on the back
The nice thing about this mini is that you can put little things in the envelopes, like hospital bracelets, lock of hair, things like that.
I got the idea for the envelope from Laura from Follow The Paper Trail on You Tube. Here's the link to her video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjzRGSevuuQ&feature=related.
The idea for the photo booklet came from Cropacabana scrapbook channel, here's the link to her beautiful baby mini album check it out http://www.youtube.com/user/kabana0#p/u/2/-dpAGAaSMWM
Little Nicholas is having major medical problems and I feel so bad for him and my brothers family. I found this poem on the internet and I thought it was beautiful.
