One Saturday afternoon while babysitting (okay, actually I was just the observer, my aunt and mom were the yaya’s for the day…:D), Zhia was just so adorable so I decided to take out my phone to get some pictures. Luckily, my phone has this ‘burst’ function that get four simultaneous pictures in one shot. Perfect for babies since they tend to get fuzzy sometimes. A few adorable pictures later, I decided to try making a mini flip album from the tutorial I got from making-mini-scrapbooks.com. So here are the results of my hard labor…;)
That cute flower on the other hand is made from pink patterned paper and the center is a wooden bead from an old jewelry that I took apart. You can find the instructions on making this flower from this site. I just altered it a bit, instead of using the stem, I added the bead instead.
The page 2 flap. I just made it simple so as to draw attention to the picture of my niece. The embellishments are minimal, just a bear cut-out, a baby bottle and a rattle. The background paper is plain pink thus centering the attention on the picture.
The center left-side flap. This picture is just too cute!… I just accented it with a bear cut-out and a plain pastel blue background. I made use of an editing software on the photo to further enhance it.
The center page. There are minimal embellishments here, only the letter cut-outs of her name on the sides. I made this collage of her pictures showing her fascination with a newspaper and an advertising page.
For the fourth page of my album, I made an additional flap. For the cover, I cut out a baby carriage stencil using plain pink cardstock and accented it with a fabric ribbon with a rose on the center. The contrast between the pink and the pastel yellow is just stunning.
The sixth page. I used the DIY flower again as in the the first page. This time in a pale blue patterned paper. This fits perfectly with the flower patterned blue background paper. A strip of pink ribbed ribbon adds a perfect touch to this page.
There you go guys, my first mini flip album. Hope you liked the layouts as much as I liked creating it. I will be posting later some other mini albums that i created. I have been fascinated lately with them since they can be made as perfect gifts!. Thanks for reading!
