Birthday Present for Mom-in-Law (Don't Look Yet Mom!)

A few weeks ago I attended a Team Meeting in Westland, MI (where I met some of the women I have been inspired by for a while!  Yay!) and we were given this cute mini album to put together.  I believe the original creation was from Dana Swadling-Thanks Dana!

I have been dying to put it together and finally had some time today while all my kiddos were finally back to school.  I used the 6x6 My Creations Accordian Album (it ONLY costs $3.95!!!) with Passages My Reflections paper with coordinating cardstock, the new Foundry Flourishes,  Marks Passages, Just Blooms Spring Blossom Collection and Opaques Pearl Adhesive Gems.  I also used Cocoa ink and My Acrylic Stamp Sets The Present (New this Idea Book) and Live Inspired.

I cut no corners when it comes to gifting for friends and family plus I LOVE making these types of items.  I tried to take pictures to show you all the wonderful angles and spots to put pictures.  I really hope she loves this as much as I do.  I also made a matching birthday card (of course) to give with the album.

Live, Love, Create and have a Craftabulous day!

  1. Jill, this is beautiful. Did you fold the inside pages in half? I have a commission to make another box and album and the lady's colors are brown and beige so I am thinking about using passages. Very cool. I sign on as a follower when I found a post on the artwork bb.
