Hello, Renee here today to share a 1 Year mini album using the Lullaby collection. Oh, how I love this sweet baby collection and creating this mini album gave me the opportunity to combine both the boy and girl lines. Payton turned double digits this past St. Patrick’s Day! I cannot believe it’s been 10 years since she joined and completed our family. I looked through some older studio portraits and found a bunch from her first birthday. I had to grab some of my favorites to make a mini album. I used a couple of 5″ x 7″ along with some 2 ½” x 3 ½” photos for this 6″ x 8″ album.
This is my favorite page from Payton’s 1 Year mini album! Who said that Glassine Paper was just for treat bags and envelopes? I adhered two glassine papers back to back and trimmed it down to 5 ½” x 8″. I added a pretty punched edge and embellished it with adorable Die-Cuts and enamel dots. I used the We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board and the Baby Girl Quotes pattern paper to create a 2 ¼” x 3 ½” photo frame. Adorable!
I used my We R Memory Keepers Cinch Book Binding Tool with Square Holes to finish off my album. The instructions were simple to follow making the mini album easy to make.
- I gathered all my pages and lined them up to punch the holes for an 8″ album. I pulled the #4 peg when it came time to add the additional holes at the ends of the pages.
- I trimmed the We R Memory Keepers White Cinch Wires to about a 7 ½” length and placed them on the hooks. I threaded the inside pages of my mini album first, then the front cover, and then the back cover (the front and back covers faced each other so I could hide the seam) on to the binding wires.
- I set the cinching bar to the size of the .75″ wires and pressed down.
My album looks great! I created a simple cover using the Just Duckie pattern paper along with a birthday cake Die-Cut and Maggie Thickers for the title of my mini album. I added the Icicle and Honeycomb glitter glues to the flowers and candle of the birthday cake Die-Cut for some sparkle.
I used the Baby Boy Blossoms pattern paper for my page here. Lots of pretty flower stickers around my photo! I used the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Styleboard Die Set and Baby Girl Quotes pattern paper to create the bow embellishment.
I love the bunny design on the Baby Girl Posies pattern paper and couldn’t help but use a matching bunny Die-Cuts for this photo! So sweet! Love the glassine page that gives me a sneak of the next page. That deer Die-Cut is too adorable.
I added lots of flower and butterfly Stickers to embellish the photo on the Baby Boy Blossoms pattern paper. I used the soft pink stripes on the Woodland Baby Girl pattern paper for this sweet teddy bear photo. How perfect is this bear Die-Cut? I cut-up the journaling card from the Baby Girl Quotes patterned paper and added some pink mist to a few words before adhering it around my photo.
I used the Just Duckie pattern paper again for the back cover of my mini album.
Hope you enjoyed this sweet and simple 1 Year Mini Album. Thanks for stopping by the Pebbles blog today!
