Baby Bitty Book Album

OK - yet another album...........I seem to be making a whole bunch of these lately and still loving each one of them. This one is actually for Grandmother Gene! I believe she is quite busy and won't have time to be searching through my blog (I hope). I know she will enjoy this gift!

Spine with football beads:

Back album cover:

The front has the most detail: Two mats are popped with dimensionals. The the embossed Bashful Blue Mat is embossed with a Cuttlebug Dot folder, Diamond Dust Stickles applied to the dots, then leftover strips are added before the name (cut with Provotcraft Designer's Calendar Cricut cartridge at 1" high). Adhere the letters with Tombow glue. The lion is cut suing the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge cut 1-1/4" high in Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel paper, then popped with dimensionals. so cute!!!

Take out the album to reveal a book for memories (stamp set is from "The Best Things in Life" by Melanie Muenchinger/Gina K Designs

Open the album to reveal the inside:

Inside album pages have an embossed alphabet texture, along with strips of left over paper from the album cover and album. Use those scraps!
