Hello Crafty Friends!

Wow has it really been four months since I've posted? This Summer was just full of doing fun family things that I didn't have a moment to scrap.  I did finish some projects that needed completion, so as I find the time to blog again, I'll be getting those up as soon as possible.

The first up is the Baby Boy Mini Album that I made for my friend's little boy.  It's a very simple chipboard album from Clear Scraps, that I just covered in different patterned paper and cardstock from my random stash.  I also added some 4x6 chipboard pages and made Simple Paper Bag Envelopes (inspired by Stephanie from With A Grin).

Keepsake box houses the mini album.
Used my Cricut for the title, and "Create A Critter" (Cartridge) for the dinosaur.

Front Cover.
"It's a Boy!" is a sticker, that I backed with cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive.  "Welcome Little One" is a stamp from Fiskars.  I cut out the name, "Jacob" using "Storybook" (Cricut Cartridge).

Pages 1 & 2.  "Just Arrived" is a wood-block stamp.

Pages 3 & 4.  "Mother" is a 7Gypsies stamp.  The onesie and footprints are cut from "New Arrival" (Cricut Cartridge).

Pages 5 & 6.  "Sweet Dreams" is a Fiskars stamp.  Here is the first "Simple Paper Bag Envelope".  The sentiments are also stamps from Fiskars.

Pages 7 & 8.  More stamping from Fiskars.

Pages 9 & 10.  Second "Simple Paper Bag Envelope" and more Fiskars stamping.

Pages 11 & 12.  Cuts made from "New Arrival" Cricut Cartridge.

Pages 13 & 14.  "Dad" stamp from 7Gypsies.

Pages 15 & 16.  P 16 has a fold out for more photos/journaling.

Back Cover.

One last look at the front cover.

Here is the tutorial by Stephanie from With A Grin to make the envelope pockets:
