Baby Girl Mini

Hey Y'all!!  Well, as I told you before my crafting time has been severely limited.  So, I wanted to share a project that I completed a while ago and never shared.  Unfortunately, the video for this is on my DEAD iPhone so all I have is a photo of the front.  It's a mini album that I made for my friend Jennifer and her baby girl Ari. 

I kept it very girl and went with pinks and browns. 

Here is the front of the mini

I used some pink hounds tooth paper I got at Hobby Lobby by the paper studio.  Recollections mini roses, the big white flower is by Prima and the two on either side of it are I Am Roses.  I colored them with Coco Bean Copper spray by Lindy's Stamp Gang.  I added a doily underneath those and some brown multi-tone wheat sprays.  Next to the brown flowers on the end I added some ribbon flowers that have a tiny bling in the center.  I distressed the edges with a brown ink by Inkadinkado.  I added the Princess Die cut by My Minds Eye and backed it on brown card stock and used the Martha Stewart Punch around it.  I then added the Bow in the corner that is an ivory color.  I used the Stack the Deck binding method created by Laura Denison and you can go to YouTube and search for Stack the Deck and you can find her great tutorial on this binding.  I think it is my favorite out of all the binding methods out there!  It makes the mini lay flat even if you add dimensional embellishments.  You just kinda have to plan ahead.  I used the same papers throughout this mini with a few different patterns.  Maybe I can get my iPhone to LIVE again and be able to share the video with you.

As always...thanks for taking a look.  I am working on a True Blood Themed Project right now.  It's just taking a while to complete. 

Have a great day!!
