Baby Mini Album By Amy

Share/Bookmark

I created this mini album for my cousins who just had a baby girl. I thought it would be a wonderful keepsake to capture the memories from the first few months of their baby's life. After all they change so much! I used the Mini Album from the Lunch With Mom SVG Kit and then embellished with baby elements. I used several elements from the Bundle of Joy Set. It was really fun playing with girl colors, I have two boys, so pink is not used alot around my home. Try making one of these for new parents, grandparents or your new baby!

Design Tips

  • Ink the edges of all the pages and elements.
  • Add embellishments & twine to the SVGs.
  • I added twine around the rings and added color coordinating ribbon.
  • Add dimensional tape to add interest.
  • Embossing also adds to the project.
  • Mix up patterned papers along with solids.
