Baby Boy Mini Album

Creation #160

I just finished making this Baby Boy Mini Album for my niece's baby shower this weekend. It took a long time to make, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  

 


The above shows the difference inking around the edges can make.  To me, a project just doesn't look complete unless everything is inked around the edges.  :)  The pages are cut in the shape of a ONSIE.  There are 7 pages and each page is cut 4 times then stacked & adhered together for stiffness like chipboard.


In-between all the pages are scalloped circles for pictures on one side with stamped journaling lines on the other side.


Onsie p. 99 cut @ 7"

Everything is sponged around the edges in light brown.  All the papers are from DCWV Baby Boy Stack.  All the images including the ONSIE page shape  are from NEW ARRIVAL Cricut cartridge.  All the scalloped circles for pictures and journaling are cut from LACY LABELS the "MISS YOU" label @ 3 1/2" with Shadow feature.

Get ready for LOTS of pictures...
