After hearing about the $0.01 penny deals at Michaels I had to check it out… who doesn’t want things for a penny!?!? Here is the stuff I got: multiple Easter and Valentine’s Day stamps, door pulls, 4 t-shirts, bath fizz, and a butterfly EK Success punch. Definently worth checking out especially for stamps and punches if you use them. There is a lot of other stuff that’s supposed to be a penny too but this is what I found at my store.
This 6×6 mini album has space to record 25 of your December memories. There are spaces and tags labeled 1-25. You can use it to record a memory a day through Christmas (December Daily)or instead of having that daily pressure you can highlight 25 memories in general. Since everyone celebrates different throughout the holiday season this is a great way to document those memories. This album is available for purchase at my Etsy shop ScrapsbyBrandi. Which now accepts credit cards directly if you don’t have Paypal.
The paper pad I used for this mini album was Christmas from MME. On the front cover I layered paper, stickers, and embellishments. This little black photo frame I had worked perfectly with the theme.
It’s in the details…
Memories 1-4 and the introduction of Baker’s Twine to the album (will be LOTS more!) I just love the stuff!
Memories 5-8. All the numbers that overlap the photo mats are not attached where your photo would go so your photo will easily slide under them.
Memories 9-12.. with more Baker’s Twine, fuzzy brads and rhinestones.
Space for memories 13-16.
Memories 17-20… LOVE this moose paper!
Memories 21-24 complete the inside of the album.
The back cover has a flip up page giving space for your 25th memory.
Back cover with flipped up page.
Some of the designs on the numbers. Album available for purchase at my Etsy shop ScrapsbyBrandi.
This 6×6 Halloween mini album it loaded with details and spaces for pictures/journaling. I loved working with these colors together: black, white, orange, green and purple. This album is available for purchase at my Etsy Shop.
The characters and title were colored using a variety of copic markers.
The ‘B’ is acrylic and the O’s are foam letters.
The banner has pieces popped up. The haunted house was colored using copic markers.
I had the pleasure to create four mini albums for these adorable kids first birthdays. The albums are 4×4 and packed with pictures and embellishments. I used decorations from the party to create some of the embellishments. I used the balloons and napkins to wrap around chipboard to make banners. The fringe from the table clothes was used to embellish photos. I cut apart the plates to use the 1′s and borders to embellish the pages. The shiny fringe from the birthday hats was added among the ribbons on the rings binding the album.
There are two girl and two boy albums and I used similar layouts with varying colors to complete the albums.
These banners were covered with napkins and balloons from the party and embellished with baker’s twine, stickers and jewels.
A variety of ribbons and fibers were used on the binder rings to add texture to the albums. An acrylic tag was embellished with “First Birthday” using a gelly roll pen and jewels.
The strips with dots were cut from the plates, the fringe from the table cloth and buttons/jewels with added to further embellish the pages.
These were the general payouts of the pages. Each had a block matted with a solid color. A white gelly roll pen was used to dot-dash around the border of each page. All the photos were matted in white and then a variety of embellishments were added to complete the pages.
Baker’s twine was used to wrap around some of the pages as embellishment. Also there are some more pictures of buttons with jewels that were used. Buttons are perfect to add pops of color to kids albums.
If you are interested in a similar styled album or any other custom album you contact me to start the process. I also have a variety of mini albums that are already completed and ready to be purchased at my Etsy Shop.
Just had a baby? Planning for a baby? Or maybe your little one is growing up and you are looking for a way to record all those special memories! Here is a custom baby album that I made for a customer on Etsy that would be perfect for you! It’s an adorable album for a baby girl with pinks and chocolate brown and could be customized with any colors you wish.
I used a collection of cards received at the baby shower from friends and family. I added pockets throughout to insert the messages from within the cards and additional photos. These were a perfect place to tuck the personal messages left for the family.
Then I added photos throughout on card stock pages and none embellished areas of the cards. In order to fit the maximum number of pictures in the album I added flip out areas to mount extra photos.
I bound it all together with rings and added coordinating ribbons. I included strands of fabric from the baby’s room in with the ribbon as well.
This particular album is 20 pages which gave me 40 total surfaces to utilize. I had a lot of fun making this album and cramming as many memories as possible into a keepsake the family would treasure for a lifetime.
No two custom albums are ever the same, giving you a unique and special way to enjoy your little one’s baby memorabilia and photos. To request a custom album contact me through my Etsy shop.
Started a 6×6 mini album today using Authentique paper line Endless & Fair-Weather which is beautiful! Here are the pages prepped and ready for the DETAILS! Now for the fun part!
Here I took chipboard letters for Mother and inked them in faded jeans Distress Ink, added a layer of picket fence Distress Crackle paint, and misted with Perfect Pearls mist when dry.
Layered a variety of blue flowers with white brads and then spritzed with Perfect Pearls.
Here is a shot of the whole front color, loving the blues/yellows!
Inside I added more flowers that have been misted with Perfect Pearls and some Baker’s Twine in a variety of coordinating colors.
With Christmas just around the corner we are all trying to wrap up the last of our Christmas shopping. If you are trying to think of something you can make instead of buy so it’s more personal a mini recipe album makes a perfect gift. You can fill it with your favorite recipes or leave it blank for them to fill with their own recipes. Below are a few images of mini recipe scrapbook albums I have recently made. I made two using the same paper pad and layout but switched up the order the colors are in to give variety. It is a good way to make multiples without having to think up a whole new idea.
I just added a few new decks of 52 Reasons I Love You to My Etsy Shop. My favorite is this lime green one… makes me think of the Grinch this time of year!
This recipe album is full of bright colors and loaded with 24 recipe cards. It is available for purchase at My Etsy Shop.
