Perfect Birthday Gift

This month’s contest at Scrap It Girl is birthday.birthday album by Candy Spiegel

 

This little 4×4 mini album is the perfect gift for a birthday present. It has places along the way to record memories and place photos of the special day. And the last page has a gift-card pocket!

I used chipboard to create the cover. The inside pages are Mosaic Moments RTC Grid Paper, which can easily be cut to 4×4 sheets. I glued them together back-to-back to make sturdy pages. I bound the book with a ring and added ribbons and fibers from my stash and a little clock from Hobby Lobby.

I typed all of the quotes and words and printed them off to use in the book. The tiny prints are all from Memory Box.

The cupcake is an outline sticker by Elizabeth Craft Designs, filled with ECD glitter and colored with Copics. (Don’t try this without ECD glitter!)

birthday album 003By using the grid paper, I can easily place 1″ squares to frame the photo on this page.

birthday album 004The striped, text and jar papers are all from American Crafts. I just cut one jar out for an embellishment on this page.

birthday album 005This page takes advantage of the grid paper. I also added a Cornerstone (the cake) from Mosaic Moments. I replaced the paper it came with with a piece of patterned paper to keep with the theme of my book.

birthday album 006The last page used another Mosaic Moments Cornerstone (a present), along with chevron and note paper from American Crafts. The pocket (the brown chevron paper) allows for a gift card to be inserted.

Now it’s your turn … create a card, scrapbook page or project with a birthday theme. Post it at Scrap It Girl during the month of March and you could win this:
