An Album For Ava

Yesterday you saw an adorable photo of baby Ava. Well, I couldn't possibly have gone to visit her empty handed, so I created this sweet little mini album (quickly) to give to her Mom. The papers are all from the amazingly adorable Big Top Birthday Collection by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations. I was in a hurry and totally bummed that I didn't have the stickers to go with it because they would have been perfect, but I didn't have time to run to the store so I decided to add some of Samantha Walker's super cute Holey Cardstock and tossed in some stickers from American Crafts along with some fabulous May Arts ribbon and the whole thing came together super fast!

Ava Album


This is the front of the album. The stamps are Stamp'n Up! and 100 Proof Press (kewpie doll).

The base is a REALLY SUPER cute chipboard album from the Creative Imaginations Bare Elements line.

Ava Album (back)


The back of the album is simple and cute.

Below, I will show you the inside pages...I did, however, feel like something was missing, so after I took these shots (and shortly before I walked out the door to see her....) I added three small gem stones, one blue, one pink, and one yellow in a loose cluster on each page. I'm sad that I don't have shots with that because it was EXACTLY what was needed and finished it off nicely. It's so hard to create without the photos in hand, but this way she has a uniform way to cut the photos and quickly add them....seeing as being the mother of a newborn makes you kinda busy! LOL!

I had a lot of fun creating this little album, even if it was a super quick project...sometimes those are even more fun! LOL!
