Mini Album for My Mini Joachim

Like any scrapper mom who treats her baby's every ayys and oohs as a milestone, I have accumulated already thousands of pictures in a matter of 3 months. I needed to organize them in an album where I can bring them wherever I go. Thanks to Sharon Chua for lending me her scallop rectangle bigz xl die which is perfect for doing mini albums.

I used here a cut out tag using Slice design card Basic 3. The hippo felt is from Cosmo Jack's World.
I used Sassfras Jungle Pals to stamp the elephant with blue ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I just love to use animals with whatever project I do now. :)

Again, slice design cards were used to cut out small circles for the tree and bear.

Mini fence is a Martha Stewart border punch. The tree is courtesy of Bessie's tree sizzix die.
Journalling: I never wanted to have a baby boy because I knew I didn't have the patience for the works. . . and then you came. . I would never exchange you for the most adorable baby girl there is.

The arrow, pacifier, handprints and moon were cut using Slice design cards.

New Toy

After all the great reviews about MM's Slice, I didn't waste time to get one. After the long wait, I finally got my pink Slice from Lasting Impressions. I am so impressed with its versatility as it can cut alphas and a lot more from an inch to 4, adopting well to whatever size your project is. You dont have to use individual die to make your title. One design card contains complete alphas and characters. Also, it's so user friendly, fit for those who hit electronics without reading the manual of usage (guilty as charged). Next target: buy all the design cards.

I conservatively tried the design cards that are part of the package and this is what I have initially accomplished.

More LOs

Now that I am back to scrapping again, no one could stop me to do more LOs, blog worthy or not. I just can't leave thousands of pictures unscrapped. Thanks to the inspiration of our local and seasoned scrappers (their names were intentionally withheld for fear of inadvertently missing out one) for the inspiration. Hopefully, in time, after a thousand LOs, I will be able to have my own distinct style.
