Mother’s Day Mini Chipboard Album

This Mother’s Day mini album is one of my favorite projects. An old scrapbook kit by Heidi Grace contained all of the patterned paper, colored cardstock, stickers, and rub-ons I needed. I used a combination of digital and traditional scrapbooking techniques to make two of these (one for my mom and one for my mother-in-law). One thing that I experimented with this time around was pre-planning the photos to match the Mother’s Day theme of the album.

One of my favorite details is the bit of ribbon attached to one edge of each quote:

One for the guys

I was going to make cards for Father’s Day when I came across this cute, simple Top Note mini album on a blog called Stamp With Belinda. The words “quick” and “easy” caught my eye, and I was sold! I simplified Belinda’s version of the album even more by using only photos and not adding any vellum quotes.
