Newborn Baby Grant Mini Album

I made this little mini album for one of my client's little newborn baby boy Grant.  I ran out of my stash of baby mini albums I had made to have on hand.  I had decided I was going to make them as needed, afterall pregnancies do last a while..lol  This way they are special and made just for them.  I really only make projects that I need at the time.  If I have them on hand there is nothing really special about them. 

 
In the past I have always used my Cricut to cut out a stork and newborn in a diaper to put on the front of the mini album and of course stickle the heck out of them.  I decided to try just using some chipboard embellies and no stickles!  It turned out cute and quite different than one's I have given my new Mommie client's in the past.  It works out great since many are onto babies 2 and 3.  It also gave me a good excuse to start using some of the Debbie Mumm paper and chipboard I got at Jo Ann's eons ago (at full price..yikes...I did get some new stash at 70% off..yippee)  I still have an abundance of toity rolls too.  I entered this little mini album into the following challenges:

 

 
Here's what I used to create this little mini album that all came from my stash, most of it eons old:

  • Cricut & Gypsy to cut out double tags

  • Cuttlebug and embossing folders

  • Inkadinkado Clear Stamps

  • Dollar Store Charms

  • Marvy Tag Punch

  • Debbie Mumm Baby Boy Paper & Chipboard embellies

  • Big Bite, eyelets and ring

  • Funky distressing scissors

  • Pastel cardstock

  • Toity Rolls
Thanks for looking, comments appreciated
