Handmade Baby Girl Concertina Album

A friend of mine has recently become a grandmother for the first time and I couldn't resist making her something a little bit special instead of a card. 
A concertina album with 16 pages to add photographs to.

I used Basic Grey Two Scoops and Bazzill cardstock

View from the top showing the pockets for the eight pull out pages for photographs and journalling

Cuttlebug embossing folders, prima flowers, KI Memories glitter buttons and epoxy label, embroidery floss and a silver flower along with AMM Baby Girl Vellum stickers

K & Co photo corners

Spellbinders Nestabilities, SU brads, AMM metal accents, Craftwork Cards Confetti

K & Co Epoxy labels and photo corners along with Basic Grey rub-ons and Bazzill adhesive gemstones

AMM Baby Girl Guitar Picks and Stampin' Up ribbon

All inked on the edges with Cat's Eye chalk inks in pink and green

Stampin' Up ribbon, K & Co photo corners and AMM heart ribbon charm


Prima flowers along with KI Memories metal accents and Basic Grey stickers

The back of the album says it all I think :)

This is the eight cardstock inserts for the pockets which are decorated with ribbon, Tim Holtz tiny attacher and Basic Grey white rub-ons and Two Scoops rub-ons.  They also have matching cardstock on the back of them and can hold two photographs or one photograph on one side and journalling on the other.

I took the present today and the lady was absolutely delighted with it and couldn't wait to show it off. :) xxx
