Lori Shares a Special Gift!

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Hello!!  Lori here with a very special gift to share with you.  I love making Christmas gifts and lately I have been making mini albums like crazy!  This album is for my friend's mom.

I used a chipboard book from my stash (yes I collect blank chipboard books like crazy) and even added a few pages.  I used paper from Hey Kids to cover the pages.  I love that the papers in the pad coordinate so well!!!

I added a title that I personalized on my Cameo to the front.  Mallory (the adorable girl inside the album) picked out the bright cover!  Tucked into my bow is a blue flower from Mini Paper Blooms.

Inside the first page is a few details to go along with this photo of my friend and her Mom.   

I included a pocket for notes and memories.

Love this file folder page packed with photos!

Here are Mallory and William.  They are adorable twins!

I used my circle punch to punch out the heart and lips! 

I love this polka dot paper!  I added a few extra dots!

Love that I could coordinate the girl paper and boy paper next to each other (not easy for me to use different patterned papers together)!

This orange paper is so fun!  It brings out the color of William's hair!

The back cover - a pretty stripe with a strong message!!

These papers coordinate so well - it was hard for me to choose which ones to use!!
