My little girl just reached the five month mark and to celebrate, we did a mini photo shoot (ie, Mama busted out the iPhone for five minutes while Adlyn had her bow on and the onesie was still clean). This girl can sport a thousand different facial expressions, so each page of this mini album got a unique "look" from my Addie-girl.
I made 4x6 pages from chipboard and adhered layers of Honey Chic patterned paper with Tombow's Xtreme Adhesive. I secured each matted photo with Tombow's Power Tabs for a bit of lift. I love the quality of each of those adhesives and will be turning to them again and again for future projects.
I loved playing with the sampling of May Arts ribbon that I received. For a fun, girlie look, I made "junque bows" by cutting several different ribbons to about the same length and then knotting them together in the center. I loved how easy it was to match the May Arts ribbon to the Honey Chic papers. I didn't plan it this way, but once the junque bows were adhered to my pages, I realized they looked like ribbon tutus on the photos of Adlyn.
I had fun with the self-adhesive sequin heart trim by cutting individual hearts off of the ribbon and adding a pearl brad to each one. I used them just like stickers. Easy-peasy and super cute!
I have to say, my favorite trim to use was the rhinestone trim. Being a dance teacher, this kind of thing is right up my alley :). I used a length of the trim across every other photo for some sparkle. I only secured the ends so that the trim moves and catches the light as the pages turn.
