Baby Girl Mini Album

I spent this last weekend finishing up a mini album I have been working on for a co-worker. It's pink and feminine for a new little girl. I am working with lots of Maya Road embellishments and papers from the  Maggie Holmes Confetti paper line. 


I painted the chipboard album with a coat of gesso and then a coat of Antique Linen Distress Paint. The word "sweet" is a Maya Road chipboard word that I embossed with gold embossing powder. I die cut the onesie with the Little Bits - Onesie die from Taylored Expressions. 


I am keeping the album closed with an elastic band from Tim Holtz. 


Here's the inside cover and front page. I added a pocket where you can write something special and a place to add a picture. The sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti Fancy Word Coordinates Stamp Set. 


Here I added a paper doily sponged with pink ink and just played with the embellishments until I had a layout I liked. The word "always" is embossed with an embossing enamel. 


I added some stenciling to the page on the left with the MFT Concentric Circles Stencil. I added another pocket for extra photos or keepsakes. 


I love the little burlap banner from Maya Road! I strung them together with gold thread. The word "hello" is one of Maya Road's cute metal clips. 


I added a piece of vellum to the page on the left. I added a few highlights to the wooden owl with a Copic Marker. 


I added sequins to a vellum envelope. 


And here's a look at the last page and inside back cover. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!
