Hello - this is Lori here filling in for Sheila today. I made this mini album to celebrate Mom's for Mother's Day.
I started out with a chipboard album from Michaels. One side of each page is covered with burlap. I flipped every other page so I had two sets of burlap pages together, and two paper-covered chipboard pages together (plus the covers).
I grabbed the phrase "Home is where your Mom Is" from the Silhouette Store and cut it out in pink and light green. I made an offset shadow and cut that out in hot pink cardstock. I layered some 3D flowers from the cricut cartridge CTMH Art Philosophy with some recollections flowers and butterflies from Silhouette Store.
I tied ribbon from my stash to the rings.
I wanted to keep the inside plain. I painted hot pink paint to all of the page edges. I inked some cardstock squares (for photos) and added a butterfly and crocheted flower to these pages.
The next set of pages were covered in fun papers and hot pink photo mats. Again I used a paper butterfly and crocheted flower to accessorize.
I like to make a pocket in each of my albums, usually towards the beginning or the end. I added "Mother" from the Silhouette Store. The pink photo mat on the opposite page has another butterfly and crocheted flower.
Here is the back.
I love making mini albums to give as gifts. I have a special mom in mind for this one :)
Sheila - thanks for having me over!!
