Baby Boy Scrapbook Mini Album 2015

Here's the latest of my custom made scrapbook mini albums. This one features another blue and green theme. On the cover are many of my own die cut designs and my best version of a baby peeking out from behind a birthday present. I designed a new die cut: a onsie. I made all the shapes on the cover, except for the tag, which is an Accucut Craft die, and the baby bottle, which is a Quickutz die.

On the cupcake page, I really liked how the hearts turned out. They are actually hidden tags - as you can see on the far right, where I pulled it up a bit for the picture. They slide behind the cupcakes and the bottom of the hand stamped heart 'clips' them on.

I used a damask embossing folder on this page along the top and bottom border. It's a 5x7 folder, so it was wide enough to cover the near 6.5 inch width of the page mat. I used a pearlescent paper, so it looks really lovely in the light. (You can see it better in the video.)

I devised a ribbon binding technique for this album. It truly helped the pages to lay flat! I will use this technique some more with different ribbons and see how it goes. It did make assembly of the cover a little difficult, but the end result was quite worth it in my book!
