Gender Neutral Baby Mini Album

Wow I'm awful! It has been such a long time since I have updated the blog. I have participated in many swaps and done many "crafty" projects in the last 7 months but I just haven't had the extra time to manage the blog. Although I don't keep up with mine, everyday the 1st thing I do in the morning is to get on to blogger and youtube and check out all the beautiful projects from all my favorite crafty ladies. I would love to share some pics of a mini album that I completed this past week. It was a mini for a friend's baby shower. My challenge for this mini was that she doesn't know what she's having so I had to make it gender neutral. That got a little tough at times but I think it turned out pretty good. Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment.

YPP May Many Mini Mini's Swap

Here are my pages for the group Many Mini Mini's at
For the May swap we were to create a 4x4 page out of chipboard with a mermaid & friends theme. I had to make 11 pages and I will get a mini mini album in return with 11 different pages from 11 different people. I had a little bit of trouble with this but I ended up really liking the finished page. I can not wait to see the completed binded book!!

My new Challenge

A few weeks ago I submitted a few of my mini albums for a new design team and guess what...I was one of the ones chosen. I am so excited to be a part of a DT and hope that it helps to keep me crafting! Check out the website and other designers at, they are all so talented! Here is my 1st mini album for the DT.

I made this for my cousin Shawna's gorgeous son Gavin that turned 1 this month. She is a Wonderful photographer and I thought this would be a unique way for her to showcase some of her terrific photos. I made each page to correspond with each month of Gavin's first year also incorporating the seasons/holidays.

I utilized many different paper packs for this mini including, KC & Co, DCWV Prints for the Year and DCWV All about boys. I used my cuttlebug to emboss many of the picture mats, using many different folders. I also incorporated many of my favorite interactive pages, using envelopes or mini paper bags. I used my Cricut to make many of the tags and embellishments including the turkey and skeleton. Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment!
