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!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
