LITTLE ELEPHANT MINI ALBUM


Welcome to the Stamp to Share blog hop!  If this is your first time joining us, welcome!  Stamp to Share is a monthly hop where Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the globe join together to feature one Stampin' Up! Bundle or suite to inspire you.  This month, we are featuring the Little Elephant Bundle.  This bundle has a great mix of images and sentiments and features a punch instead of dies, for you punch lovers out there!


I am stepping right outside of my comfort zone this month by using this adorable bundle in a mini album.  I am all set to become a Great Aunt for the first time at the end of August, so I had the perfect reason to make something giftable for Ma, Da and Baby!


This little album is reminiscent of the flip style photo albums we had when I was a child - a gazillion years ago - and can hold up to 15 photo's of your little cherub!  You could also adapt the pocket page to be another flip page too, thereby holding 30 photo's!


I decided on a pocket page and tab pull out so that our little angel's birth details can be added plus any notes the new parents may want to record.


Not only is the little elephant super cute and easy to punch out, there are two sizes to choose from!  Use one as I have or include both on your project.  This bundle also works well with the Twinkle Twinkle suite of products, which the Designer Series Paper I have used on the album cover comes from.

This album is a mash up of several I have seen on Pinterest and around the web, so I can't give credit to any one person for the original design.  I wanted to be able to create an album from an A4 sheet of card rather than a 12" x 12", as many are, so came up with my own measurements based on a few different albums.  Thanks to all for your inspiration and talent!

Next up on hop is my talented friend from the US, Amy Koenders!

  6. Paula, this is so pretty! Is there any way we can beg you to tell us how you made it? I normally don't need baby things, but it just so happens a very dear friend of mine is going to be a first time Grandma! This would be perfect for her. Thank you for sharing it.

    1. Awww, thanks so much Bobbi. I have written the dimensions down (somewhere) but not put them into a tutorial as I was just playing around with this album to begin with. I may just get this one written up sometime, but probably not in time for your friend's grand baby.
