I have been missing in action because.....

I have been busy creating this Acrylic Album for a good friend of mine that had a baby girl in December. I am going to her baby shower tomorrow and just decided on Wednesday to make this for her. I really hope that she likes it. She knows that I scrapbook and loves to go through my albums and such, but she does not scrapbook for herself. I tried to make the album easy for her to be able to add her pictures to it, so I did not do too many different sized photo mats. The only thing I could NOT resist adding to the album was the big scalloped circles that look like flowers. I guess that she does not have add photos to those, she could just leave them alone.

ANYHOO.....on to the album. I created this using CTMH's My Creations Acrylic Album and My Reflections Daydream paper pack. I kind of used a hodge podge of accents, but all are CTMH and are current if you would like to order any! If you like this but it is too girly for you, check out Vicki's version using the My Reflections Stardust paper pack! She even has super cute black and white photos of her son on hers!!

Front cover....


Pages 1 and 2.....


Pages 1 and 2 still, with the divider moved over to page 1.......


Pages 3 and 4......


Pages 5 and 6.......


Pages 5 and 6 with the divider moved over to page 5.....I thought that if she wanted, she could add a photo to this, or she could keep it just plain.


Pages 7 and 8 The "flower" on this page is a large Nestabilities scalloped circle with a regular Nestabilities circle inside.......


Pages 7 and 8 again with the flower flipped over to the other side.


And finally, the back of the album. I did not do anything with the back, just stuck a piece of paper on it and a scalloped circle. I did not think it needed much more!


Am I forgiven for not posting for 2 days?? I thought maybe this would make up for it! If you really like this album and want to make one for yourself, leave a comment in this post and I will e-mail you the cutting dimensions and photos of the album in a word doc. If you want to re-create this using the same papers and album, you can order the supplies from my CTMH website and have them shipped directly to you!

All supplies are ctmh:
Paper: Daydream and Daydream Stickease
Embellishments: White Daisy Mini Medley, White Daisy Ribbon, Baby Pink Ribbon, Love Letters Rub-Ons, Winter Cozy Buttons, Holiday Buttons, Big Blooms, Circle Window Charms, Perennials Dimensional Elements, Monogram Dimensional Elements, and Sparkles

I hope that you have found some inspiration!

Thanks for sticking with me and not giving up on me! Please stop by again soon!!

Your friend is going to love this album. It will be so easy for her to add pictures and then show off to her friends. I really like the acrylic albums. They are so much fun to play with.

Hi Jen! I love the acrylic album, and am going to attempt a couple myself! I would love to have an e-mail document of your cutting diagrams and photos! My e-mail is mrsme6th@bellsouth.net Also, did you use the Tombow adhesive we have at CTMH, and did you use any rub-ons? Any tips and hints would be great! Thank you, Roberta
