My niece Bec celebrated her eighteenth birthday on the weekend and I made this mini-album for her to commemorate the last eighteen years. I am really pleased with how it turned out so I thought I’d share it with you.
Bec has more handbags (purses) than anyone I know, so I felt it would be fitting to do the mini album in the shape of a handbag. I was going to design my own template but then Wendy from Doodelicious offered a really cute template for a purse shaped card on her blog, so I modified that and turned it into a mini-album.
I made the album on Bazzil textured cardstock and used papers from Thao Cosgrove’s Bella Collection from Scrap Girls and Mesoke’s Vanille Fraise on the front. The beads on the left are a flamboyant key ring to match her bubbly personality.
I designed the pages digitally so there would be no elements to catch on each other. And all the papers and elements are from Thao Cosgrove’s Art Journal Collection plus some sparkles from Rina’s Sparkles kit on the last page.The handle is from an old charm bracelet I butchered and the eyelets hold the top flap in place so that stops the bag from falling open.
Bec loved it. Hope you enjoy it too.
