Hello papercrafters! It’;s Lynne Joncas here with an 8×;8 Baby Boy Album I made as a gift; I LOVE texture but had to take it easy? and keep the pages pretty flat so the album wouldn’;t be too bulky…;.sigh…;.the struggle is real!

This is the cover –; I started with a plain cream-coloured album and misted the cover lightly with Maya Blue Glimmer Mist.

Can you see the gorgeous rainbow effect created by delicately spritzing the mists?

Supplies usedTattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Maya BlueCanvas Corp Mix &; Match Pad-Snips &; Snailsa few pieces of blue and brown papers from my stashButtons from the button boxWhite glue and glue stickFoam adhesiveBorder punches

The 12×;12 sheets from the pack were cut down to 8×;8, and the mats attached to some of the pages for photos are all 3-1/2×;5-1/2″;. I tried a mat large enough for a 4×;6 photo but didn’;t like the look on such a small page.? The burlap and canvas pieces also come from the Mix &; Match pad, which is pretty awesomepillow sham pattern, since it was a handy way to add some texture without too much bulk.

The young lady who is receiving the album is someone who was a member of the midweek children’;s program I used to teach at our church…;since the age group I worked with was JK-grade 2 (about ages 4-8) and she’;s turning 24 this month, I have known her for quite a while!

I love the combination of colours in these papers and the adorable images and sentiments; the pad made putting this album together easy and enjoyable.

The inside cover was a great spot for this sweet sentiment, which I thought would serve as a perfect introduction to the album.

The sheet of paper with the letter blocks was great to cut up for use on pages.

If there are any babies on the way in your world, grab some of these sweet papers and create something wonderful-the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a colourful and creative day!
