Another Mini Album - I Am So Much Loved

Hello lovelies!

I've made one additional album with the pictures of my Eva. I always forget to print a full bunch of photos in the studio for the case that I have an inspiration and need some of them for an album.

And what happens is that I don't have a choice but to print a few pics on my laser B&W printer. Of course I try to keep the quality of the print to the fullest, but it can never compare to the quality of the photo printing.

I'm explaining you that, because on the close-ups the pictures look gritty (they look less gritty though in real life).

The papers I used are from the Simple Stories and I had 3 pads to chose from - "I Am..", "24/Seven", and "Hello Baby".

Anyhow, the album measures 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" and has 5 pocket pages. The spine is 1 7/8". I added a rubber band closure from the right side to keep the album securely closed:




I had several round 1" epoxy stickers and used them for creating additional embellishments in the album:










On the cover the word "loved" is also under one of those epoxy stickers which I simply stuck to the paper and then used my 1" circle punch to cut it out:


Eva loves to flip through this album, mostly because it's a small size and she can easily hold it in her hands and another reason are tons of tiny rhinestones which she adores :)


Thanks for watching and have a great day!

Baby Girl Mini Album - Kaisercraft Pitter Patter Paper

Hello lovely people!

Sometimes I take a break from creating cards with colored images and run away to creating mini albums, using just pretty papers and cutouts.

Since I'm pregnant again, there's a good reason for creating baby albums and this is exactly was I have been doing in the past few weeks.

Today I want to share an album for which I used a gorgeous paper stack from Kaisercraft "Pitter Patter".  I've also used a cutouts set and I love how it turned out.

For the binding I've tried for the first time Kathy Orta's Faux Post Binding method. It allows you to keep on using the hidden hinge binding system and also use fabric for the covers and create a bended

The cover looks like this:






The album has 8 pocket pages and you may have a look inside, watching this video.

Thanks for visiting!
