Little Miss Mini-Album

After the last mini-album, I thought to make another one for my mother in law. 
This time I went back to my comfort zone, back to Bo Bunny material. I knew immediately  it had to be a Little Miss album. 
Then the big task: which pictures would go into it? 
Little Miss... dresses... dressing up... ah, there's an idea: Morgan in her pretty dresses!

Due to the fact that I'm a teacher, I also have 6 weeks of summer vacation. The kids are going to day care, that way I have a lot of time to putter around with my papers and really get lost in scrapbooking. It's wonderful!

This is how it turned out:

I found an example on Bo Bunny's Pinterest. Agnieszka Piskorz made a Little Miss album. 
Her album inspired me. 

Awesome quote by Audrey Hepburn!

During the Edgy Edges workshop I worked with crackle paint again, and I caved.
I bought it. The flower in the top left corned has been treated with it.

I love how the quotes from the big papers can be used to accentuate pages.

My mom in law made this dress for Morgan, it's very much her colour.
I especially like the shiny ribbon around the neck. 

Fussy cutting: the bird cage and the beads. Love fussy cutting!

 Sometimes sepia coloured photos work better than coloured.
This photo is so sweet.

 See that swirl? I made that with my Sizzix Sidekick. 
Almost broke the machine getting the die through! It still works, for now.
Again the crackle paint. Used on the flowers and bird.
Glossy accents on the quote to make it shiny.

This was a quick page. Simple yet lovely.

The little girls belonged to a long strip of girls, but I fussy cut them to make them fit this page.
This dress was made for Morgan for Christmas. Unfortunately the gold fabric was very thin and delicate.
Much to my mom in laws (and Morgans!) chagrin the skirt was torn within a few minutes of putting on the dress. It wasn't easy to get Morgan to smile when she found out, hence the look on her face in this photo.

A new mini-album? I don't know yet. Maybe. I know I can do this now, and that I like it.

Thanks for looking!

  1. Onwijs leuk gemaakt! Het voordeel van mini-albums is dat je na elke bladzijde een hoera gevoel hebt en je toch maar één keer je spulletjes bij elkaar hebt hoeven zoeken.

    Je schoonmoeder zal er vast blij mee zijn.

    1. Dank je wel! Ik heb er vandaag wel grotere ringen in gedaan, omdat het lastig omslaan was.
