Baby Mini Album 2 (Custom Order)

This is an album for a baby, but I didn't use "baby" paper. I used "Today, Tomorrow, Forever" by Recollections. This customer needed 2 baby albums and I used this paper line for both of them. The first album was just an 8x8 album and pictures of it can be seen here. I wanted to do something a little bit different for this one. After spending way too much time on YouTube, I came across this tutorial by Kathy Orta. She made a mini album out of 5x7 cards and envelopes. How cool is that?!? After making this album with another brand of cards and envelopes, I would definitely recommend using the Recollections brand that she talks about in the video. Those envelopes and cards are very sturdy and will hold up well over time.

Check out the video below for a flip-thru of the album. I didn't do too much talking. I have been sick and have a horrible cough right now. Talking too much sends me into a coughing fit. My husband is thrilled that I'm on the quiet side right now. LOL

Paper: Today, Tomorrow, Forever by Recollections
Cardstock: Core'dinations and DCWV
Flower: from a swap (Thanks, Kristina! Check out her YT channel here.)
Stick Pin: I made it! : )
Ribbons and Lace: from my stash


  1. Beautiful work, as always! This looks like one I might try. I have a bunch of 5x7 card bases and envelopes that are packed away and I'll probably never use otherwise.

  2. Wow! That's beautiful. I'd love to see one with pictures in it. Mini albums like this are new to me.
