Meanwhile, I had some 6 x 6 chipboard album covers from some long-ago kit or project. I used thin chipboard from Silhouette (also in my stash) to cut inside pages. The finished book has 8 pages plus the front and back panels, and I still have enough supplies left for another one if I were so inclined.
This is the finished book:
I added the Baby Stats journaling block by backing it with lined journaling block, then punching a hole and tying it to my O-rings with baker's twine. I cut the balloons with the Cameo, Both title blocks and the snail are adhered with foam tape for extra dimension.
Isn't that cow sticker adorable??? I made the "to the mooon and back" journaling block.
Again, I backed the title blocks with foam tape. I also inked all the white cardstock photo blocks so they can be used as mats for the photos. And since Enrico's mommy will add the photos, I put waxed paper behind the foam or stickers that cover any part of the photo mats so they can be easily pulled away and then re-stuck.
The barn and tractor stickers are really cute too!
It seems that making mini albums is contagious. I also made a (much more elaborate) one for Charleigh, which should reach her tomorrow. After her mommy and daddy have seen the album, I can post it too.
I also completed five layouts this week, all using the October main kit from Citrus Twist Kits. This layout started with the October 1 sketch from Stuck?! Sketches, When my oldest daughter was married in 2001, I wasn't into scrapbooking, so now I'm going back and scrapping her photos.
I used an older sketch by Laura Whitaker for this layout. It seems that most of my granddaughter Charleigh's photos show her sleeping; but then, she's only 5 weeks old. Love her little sweater dress!
I loved this baclkground paper from Pinkfresh Studios and couldn't wait to use it. It was perfect for granddaughter Anna's cheerleading camp photo. The sketch is from My Creative Sketches.
I used this older sketch by Laura Whitaker because I loved the big star graphic. Cutting it in a sunny color went perfectly with my grandson's smiling face.
I used a sketch from Citrus Twist Kits' blog (I think it was late September 2015) for this layout.
Thanks for looking. Have a great day!
