Vintage Pocket Page Baby Girl Album ~ Plus a Video

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've created a mini album and I thought that now is the perfect time to do so. They do take me a while to create ...but in the end the wait is worth it! I have some close friends at work who have new baby girls (who will receive this I'm not sure) so this has given me some inspiration and motivation to create an album. For this mini album I have used papers from the Vintage Baby Collection. I have also followed a tutorial to create this album. It's a pocket page style album. It's part of a tutorial series by My Sisters Scrapper which can be found here.

For the front of my album, I die cut this image from It's a Girl and used a Sizzix antique frame die to showcase it. I used some Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima blooms as well.

Throughout the album I used all of the 'girl' papers, ephemera cards and die cut sheets. I wanted to allow for journaling and personalisation in this album, and the journal cards make that possible.

I also used several baby themed die cuts. The onesie section folds out and offers room for photos and also for journaling. I also used stamps to add opportunities for journaling and also to add the dates for special photos and occassions.
This style of album had lots of interaction! I also created an envelope using my WR Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and a sheet from the 6x6 paper pad. Inside I added a little booklet for more photos and journaling.
This is one of the back page. I used a journaling card and folded in half to create a little book. To create the closure, I stamped onto a leftover piece of patterned paper and adhered it with some foam tape.

I have created a video walkthrough of this album where I show all of the elements of this album.
