Hi Everyone! Today I have a fun mini album that I created for a coworker of my husband. She and her husband just had their first baby (a boy!!) , so I made them a little mini album to celebrate his first year! Here's the cover, I used Bella Blvd.'s Tiny Tots for the entire album...it was the perfect collection for this type of project! The patterns, the stickers and the die cuts are all so cute!
I created a Silhouette Cut file to make Polaroid pockets. I stitched the sides and the bottom, leaving the top open, so that they can just slide a 4"x 5" photo from the top. I made a sleeve for each month and added a tag to journal the special moments and milestones! I tried to keep it simple, knowing how hectic it can be with a new baby in the house!
Take a peek at the remaining pages...
I can't wait to give it to the new parents! And I also would like to share the Polaroid Album cut files I created. The green file below is perfect if you're using plain cardstock for your album. You only need to fold along the score line and stitch or glue up the sides. The blue file on the right is made for patterned papers, so that you can create the sleeve with the pattern going the proper way on both the front and back. Just stitch or glue the sides and bottom edge. I then punched a hole in the top left corner to allow for a binding ring.
You can access the file here. That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
