Happy Birthday, Sofia!

I had the pleasure of making a keepsake paper bag album for one of my dear customers, Tricia. Her daughter, Sofia, is turning three, and I can't wait for all of those birthday memories to be chronicled here!

I hand sewed the crepe paper streamers into these flower shapes, and added scalloped labels to the centers. The labels are hand-stamped, colored with art markers and glittered. I used Mudd Puddles to add the "frosting", then Stickles for the sparkly shine. Every label has a Thickers "3" and sits on a pocket. The large photo spaces are actually pull-out tags that can have a picture on one side and journaling on the other. Harlequin ribbon, dozens of sheer polka dot ribbons, fancy checked ribbons, and yummy tulle contribute to the frill factor. I love it! I wish I had a little girl to celebrate birthdays with, just so I can make this album again for me :). Enjoy, Tricia!

If you would like for me to make a custom album for you, please contact me (over at Etsy or see my profile for an email link). Prices begin at $30.00. Beginning November 1st, I am taking orders for the holidays. I am limiting the number of projects I take on, so get your order in soon!

Thanks for looking! Tessa
