A Baby Mini Album

My husband's Sister and Cousin are having babies in the near future and he wanted me to make them a baby brag book for their photos.  I ordered the Handmade collection from Lily Bee and some Studio Calico wood veneer frames and shapes because I thought they would be perfect for some baby albums.  I knew that one of them was having a girl so I made one pink and girly and the other one more neutral.

For the cover I used the wood frames from Studio Calico.  I layered them with stickers and added wood shapes and buttons to them. 

I used the banner stickers to create a banner and added some twine.

I thought pinwheels would be a fun embellishment for a baby album.  I added it to the front flap page along with a "Welcome" sentiment.

I added some Zutter Removable page protectors for them to slip some 4 x 6 photos into.  On the outside of the page protectors I added a journaling card and some wood houses.

This is the more neutral version done in yellows and greens.

I really love the butterfly wood veneer shapes especially when you add a button.

This is another flap page to add more journaling and photos.

I also added a few keepsake pockets, for one of them I just used a brown paper bag and decorated the outside with a confetti pocket.

I had so much fun making these mini albums and can't wait until they use them.

Thanks for stopping by!
