Birthday Girl Gift Album

Make this special mini album as a gift for the birthday girl’s mom
she would love a place to document that first birthday with photos and journaling
of the day's events.  
The album features the new "Birthday Girl" Collection by
ECHO PARK PAPER
 
 
Begin by making the base pages.  Start with the Set of Frames from the
 Silhouette Design Store. The largest scallop frame and the ric-rac style frame were
 used and cut from Carta Bella’s Linen cardstock.  The pages graduated in size from 
 4.5”X4.5” for the cover and 6.5”X6.5” for the back page.  Two of the same shape were
 cut and then adhered together to form a sturdier page.

A scalloped mat was cut for the front cover using the Scallop Nesting Dies and then
 layered with stickers from the Birthday Girl Alpha and Element Sticker Sheets.

This particular album is a flip-up style album, so keep that in mind when planning
 out the embellishments and paper’s pattern direction.  Off-set embellishments
 (especially if foam adhesive has been used) so that the pages will rest neatly
 against one another.

 Mix in enamel dots and decorative brads from other collections to dress up the pages.

  

Because of the smaller design scale, the 6X6 Paper Pad pages are just 
perfect for mini albums!
