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!
I have some pictures to share of an album I made for my nephew and his wife after the birth of their first child. I used an older paper pack from My Mind’s Eye called Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy, along with a few sheets of solid color cardstock. I used the Artbooking cartridge from Close To My Heart for the pages, overlays, frames, tags, and the majority of the icons, and The First Few Years cartridge for other cuts. I followed the instructions in the manual and cut everything at 8 inches, with the Real Dial Size feature OFF. I also used the Cuttlebug embossing folders Swiss Dots, Houndstooth, and Spots & Dots, as well as twine from The Twinery. I inked the edges of the album pages with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I am really pleased with how the album turned out and I hope they like it. My nephew and his wife are going to be fantastic parents! I am looking forward to meeting my newest great-nephew!

I made this boy diaper card using The First Few Years Cricut cartridge. The paper is from an older pack from My Mind’s Eye called “Twinkle, twinkle little boy”. I used silver Liquid Pearls to outline the safety pins and add a little dimension. The “sweet boy” phrase is cut at 3/4 inch and popped up on foam tape. The diaper is cut at 4 inches. I am entering this in the FCCB Challenge #171 Shape Card. Thank you for looking! Linda
