Jot it Down - A Mini Album

Happy Monday!
I hope your weekend was awesome! Did you remember to set your clock back one hour? I did! I did the old check, check and double check because if there is one thing that I despise.....it's being late! Even to work! Ha!
Today I have for you a sweet little mini album that I made for my Mama to give to a friend who just had a baby.  That sweet little bundle of joy's name is Abigail...hence the big ole A on the front of the book.

Pin It I used the envelope method to create my album.  I didn't really follow any pattern, I just winged it!  I started out with (6) 5 x 7 envelopes, two pieces of 6 x 6 thick chip board and some oh so cute papers!  Oh and the BEST part.....I used the Jot it Down set from The Cutting Cafe'.  It was just the perfect set to create my little journaling tags for the pockets created by the envelopes.
I also used my Expressions machine and the Cricut Storybook cartridge to make the giant A on the front of the book.  I cut it out 4 times to give the chipboard look.  3 times out of white card stock and once out of my yummy green polka dot paper.
See all my little tags out to the side.  Those are  just a few of the Jot it Down set.  It's a huge set.
When I saw this tag, I knew I had to use it in the front of the book.  Of course I added some bling to give it that girly look.

She is the 3rd child so for the No. tag, I added a 3 and a few flowers with jewels too.
That's my little mini album.  So sweet and girly.  Maybe one day Abigail will grow up and make mini albums for her Mama to give as gifts! *wink*
Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day! HUGS! :)

Pin It!
