Mother's Day Mini Album

As promised, here is one of the mini albums I was asked to make for a client for a Mother's Day gift. I used the newest Cosmo Cricket collections "Girl Friday" and "Lil' Man." I really like how they turned out and thought I would share.

The album was made from a 5" tin with an accordion album inside. It ties shut to keep everything tucked in nicely.

I love hiding little elements on a page like this teeny tiny note tucked in the teeny tiny envelope.

I made a pocket to hide 3 photo tags shown below.

And yet another hidden element...a small file folder which contains 3 more photos.

All stretched out...

I love how this album turned out and my client was very pleased! I think I'm going to put a kit together for Etsy. Although it's too late for Mother's Day this year, it would still make a great album for any occasion.


  1. This has got to be one of the neatest album ideas I have ever seen! I so want to hurry and do one for my mom but I don't even know how or where to begin!

  2. You know, Holly, we girls really need a scrappin weekend in BL. Wouldn't that be fun? I could show you how to do stuff like this. :)

  3. So beautiful!!! Great job on this! I know my mom would love it...and so would I! lol

  4. Let's do it Stephanie! A scrapping weekend at BL would be a blast!

  5. Cool Holly! Let's get together on Facebook and work out the details!
