Celebrate Love!

We recently got some family pictures done and I had them take a few extra of the baby since we didn't have any recent professional photos.  I saw a really cute and easy video mini album tutorial by Linda Bauwin using one sheet of 12x12 cardstock and decided to join in the fun over at Scrapbooker's Paradise Celebrate challenge this week where they are celebrating their 100th challenge! They have some great prizes to be won so be sure to check the blog!

I also found 2 new (to me) challenge blogs so I'm entering those too! Dutch Dare blog's challenge this week is to use buttons and Card Crafter's Circle challenge is to use layers.

I am using the CTMH Wings kit, which has lots of beautiful paper and fun stickers and embellishments, including buttons! The mini album is made from Kraft cardstock - which I love!

The cover:
I used heart rub-ons, a Love stamp along the bottom and two sticker buttons layered on top of the paper.  I stamped Celebrate along the paper band.

I layered a length of paper over the bottom pockets and placed my tags inside.

Photo tags:
I used black soot Distress Ink around the edges and cropped the photos to fit.

White tags:
I used red ink to Distress the edges of these tags and stamped along the bottom of each tag.  I added stamps, stickers, brads and ribbon.  Have a look at the black brads below the ribbon - they are little tiny buttons! How cute!
I cut a piece of matching butterfly paper to fit inside above the pocket.

I thought Celebrate Love was a great title to my mini album.  There are so many things to celebrate - Erica coming into our lives and her recent birthday to name just a couple.  I think I will add journaling to the back of the white tags and it will be a great keepsake for her :)

Thanks for joining me! Happy Monday!
