I've been wanting to go back through and showcase some projects from the past year that just never made it to the blog... since I'm trying to catch up on everything since my wedding (was it really almost a year ago??).
This is an album I made for my sweet Anna- she's kinda an adopted little sister/neice in my life. I've known her since she was born and she's always been attached to me. She was also the flower girl in our wedding (one of two) and so for her birthday gift this year I decided to make her a fun reminder of it. She's such a girly girl and was so stinkin' proud to be a flower girl. She told EVERYBODY she knew so I knew she'd love this...
I got the cutest mini purse album from a friend a while back and needed the perfect occasion to use it- this was it!
All you need is:
*album of your choice (I love using acrylic albums for quick projects like this)
*various scrapbook paper
*ribbon and other embellishments
I put a chipboard monogram on the front and jeweled it up...
...then I tied pink and green ribbons around the handle with some way cute beads...
...the front page just has the event and date printed on vellum with some pink rhinestones...
I took the pages out and laid them flat as I did each page... then I could also trace them on the scrapbook paper with my exacto knife for a perfect shape.
I used various embellishemnts and ribbon throughout the album- just stapled the ribbon and used glue dots for the others. It really didn't matter that they were thick because the album allowed for a lot of chunky-ness.
This ribbon is awesome!! It's a gorgeous felt scroll with self-adhesive backing. I love this stuff..
I LOVE this picture of anna and her daddy... perfect end to the album!!
I loved how it turned out and I loved the look on her face when she opened it... she wanted to show it to everyone. such an easy and fun birthday gift!!
