MOM Album

This is an album that I made for my Mom last Mother's Day. It was a chipboard album that I painted and then embossed with a damask pattern. I gave her a picture frame album the previous year, which had pictures of us in it. So, I didn't want to do another album of pictures (I didn't really have enough new ones of just the two of us to do that anyway!). I decided to go with some vintage pictures of Mothers and Daughters, along with Mother/Daughter poems, lots of buttons and I even crocheted a couple of flowers to add to it as well! One of the pages has a diecut teacup, in which I added a real Chai tea bag. It smells divine to this day!!! I was really happy with the way it all turned out. She keeps it standing up on her hutch and it makes a perfect addition to her lovely house, which is decorated with a Shabby Chic feel!

LILY Album

Here is an album that I made for my massage therapist. She is currently pregnant as well...due just one week before me! I feel very blessed to have had her continue to do my massages throughout the duration of my pregnancy, because she's the only therapist I know of in our area who is certified in pregnancy massage!

Word & Name Albums

Here are some word books that I've made as orders for people and also as gifts. Most of the Word and Name albums I make don't include pictures, but I always include photo mats so that the receiver can put their own photos in.

This was a shower gift for my friend. It was actually the very first name album I made! I think it's probably one of my all-time faves.

This is an album I made for my friend Rebekah, who is having a baby boy, due in September!

The "It's a Boy" flap on the right opens up to reveal a photo mat where she can put a picture of little Aidan!

This was one of my favorite name albums that I've done! It was a special order from the craft show. I think I work best when I have pictures to include in the albums. It helps me personalize it to the max!

I custom printed the "Statesmen" background print on acid-free cardstock, especially for this album! I did the same thing for the THS and AHS albums you'll see below...so these are definitely one-of-a-kind, as they have my own custom background designer prints!!! :-)

This THS book was given to one of the THS football coaches last year.
I usually make the TEAM books pretty neutral with not a lot of embellishments, in case someone wants to give it to a guy!

I made an additional one of the AHS ones as a special order for an AHS alumni who is now a teacher at the school.

Halloween Mini Album

Just another album I created for the craft show!!! As always, there are more pages to this album, but I just didn't feel like uploading them all! Too bad we don't celebrate Halloween or I would've kept this for myself, lol.

Christmas Tag Album

This is a tag album I created for the Christmas craft show. I put a picture of William and I into the front to show people how the photo goes into that area. This album held A LOT! Each of the flowers you see popping out of the top and right side are actually tags that slip out, which have even more photo mats and journaling spots!

School Days Album

Here's another album that I made for the craft show. I used my Bind It All for the first time with this little book! I love that little machine! There are more pages to this album, but I thought I'd just show a couple here.
