Precious Baby girl













                   My turn over at the RRR blog today!  I go through creative spurts with mini albums.  They take a lot of time but once done, I feel like I really accomplished something.  Baby albums are some of my favorites to create.  This one uses lots of pretty papers from Martha Stewart and Crate Paper.  Very soft and girly.   I used old gingham fabric on it with stitching around the front frame, as accents on the inside, and on the back page.  The back is just as pretty as the front.  I sandwiched fleece and fabric to create a puffy heart.  I added a Maya road flower, snippets of vintage lace, and a colored stamped image from Crafty Secrets.  I also stitched up some index files and decorated them up and added them. Great place to add memorabilia, memories of baby, or snap shots not yet added to the book.   This is one of those projects so fun to add ribbons too...I used the burlap center stich in pink on the ring clips as well on the inside bottom on alternating pages, plaid ribbon in pink,  and diamond satin pearl pink all on the ring clips.  I also used the Rachel white crochet lace on the bottom of some of the pages.  I love collecting little things to make each page precious...I added painted chipboard pieces that I gussied up with Crafty Secret stamps, flowers, banners, mini envelopes, and of course a few sweet pink buttons to tie it all together.  Lots of fun!  Hope you enjoy and get a few ideas for your next album!  hugs, cherry

This is so so SWEET! I'm a sucker for anything pink.... love those papers! love the chipboard pieces. Could I ask where those are from? like the little dresses and little sayings? just so cute with all of the little buttons and embellishments. Mini albums are one of my fave things to make. I have a brand new great nephew so may have to use yours as inspiration for a baby boy album but can't use any pinks (sigh)!
