Baby Mini: A little something for the new grandma!

Last December, I purchased a series of tutorials from Lain Ehmann at Layout A Day called “Mini Album Mayhem”.  One of the tutorials was titled “One and Done! Mini Album in an Hour” with Laura Denison, and I followed the instructions and made a little brag book for my Crafty Sister, Laurie, who is a new grandmother!  The instructions were very easy to follow, and although it took me longer than an hour, it was fairly quick to make.  I used baby boy paper from the Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy pack from My Mind’s Eye to cover the chipboard pages and covers.  Most of the cuts are from The First Few Years and Artbooking Cricut cartridges.  I used twine from My Mind’s Eye Indie Chic collection, buttons from Stampin’Up!, and wood veneer stars from Studio Calico to embellish each flap and create a common thread that makes the album pages “connected”.  I used a stamp from the Sweet & Lovely set from Close to my Heart, which was included with the Artbooking bundle, to make a journaling spot on the back sides of the flaps.  She’s been making a few layouts of her grandson, but I want her to have something she can easily carry with her and readily show off that precious boy!

Thanks for visiting!
