Sweet Baby Girl Album for RRR

Making a Mini Album for a baby shower is a great idea because it not only saves you money, but it provides the new mother with a beautiful keepsake for her little one that will no doubt be cherished for years to come.  Leaving big areas for attaching photos and providing journaling opportunities make for a lovely keepsake.  Today, Karen Letchworth is sharing a special little Baby Girl Mini Album she created for a new mother.  The photo below shows you the front of the album which is bound using a Zutter Bind-It-All and tying LOTS of great Really Reasonable Ribbons through each ring of the binding.  Karen used Pink Aster Seam Binding, Light Blue Gingham and LOTS of the sweet Arianna Natural Crochet Lace throughout her mini album.
The next photo gives you a closer look at the binding of the Mini Album.  If you don't own a binding tool, you can punch holes in your album, and pull these various ribbons through the holes and then tie them together to create a decorative binding.
The photo below is close up of an extra journaling tag this is tucked inside one of the album's pockets.  It's got some more sweet trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon including the Natural Burlap With Pink & White Wired Edge, some Pink Aster Seam Binding and Moss Green Leaf Trim embellished with Really Reasonable Ribbon's sweet little Wild Orchid Craft Sweetheart Blossoms.
Here's the second page.  It's just patterned papers, machine stitching, journaling stickers, and a Martha Stewart scalloped decorative border.
Here's the third page.  It has a Mary Has A Little Lamb image and sentiment sticker, a doily, patterned paper and machine stitching.
Here's the fourth page:
And page five, which ironically has a big 5 on it which is a place for journaling 5 Things I Love About You (for your precious little baby girl), and it also has a Nursery Rhyme sticker:
And page six, which has patterned paper, machine stitching, plenty of space for a photograph, and a journaling sticker/journaling spot:
And finally, page seven which a place for journaling the baby's name, and details about how and why her name was chosen:
There are lots of great ribbons, trims, laces, leaves, flowers, name it.....Really Reasonable Ribbon will help you create a lovely Mini Album for your next shower gift, etc.  We also hope you'll stop by and play along in our current challenge.  It's always more fun when everybody plays along, and Really Reasonable Ribbon is always a fun place to play, with lots of great challenges, and ribbon for every occasion!
