Bundle of Joy for RRR

Hey there, ribbon lovers!  Today I'm sharing a sweet Baby Mini Album I created using LOTS of great ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used Simple Stories Baby Steps patterned papers and stickers to create this sweet little album, along with lots of other little goodies.
The cover of this album is sweetly adorned with Juliet Natural Crochet Lace, some Rose Petal Seam Binding and a nice long length of Ivory Burlap String.  It also has patterned papers, stickers, and a few other goodies to make it look soft and sweet.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO many soft, sweet trims for making baby albums.
The second page has a bow made from White Seam Binding which is also just so simple, while still super soft and sweet.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries 24 gorgeous colors of Seam Binding so that you're sure to find just the perfect color(s) for your next project.  And at just $0.30/yard, it's priced just right so that you can get every color you need without hurting your pocketbook.
Page number three carries on the same soft, sweet theme, and is adorned with Bay Leaf Seam Binding (one of my personal favorites), as well as a length of Burlap Center Stitched Ribbon in Brown that I attached to a tag in a photo pocket.  This page is also place over a Decorative Bag so that there's a place for tucking in extra photos.
The next page (page number four) has a sweet little bow made from Soapstone Seam Binding.  This is another really great color because it can look more brown when placed with natural papers and embellishments, and can yet appear a tad bit pink when set next to the pink background.  That made the lovely Soapstone Seam Binding the perfect choice for this page with tan and pink mixed together.
The adjacent page is a very simple photo mat page, and it has the AWESOME Natural Burlap String wrapped around it several times, and holds a tiny little tag.  This is another one of my Really Reasonable Ribbon favorites.
Above is page six, and it's got lots of cute stickers.  I tried to make little hidden pockets for tucking in photos and/or journalling cards.  That's what makes our Decorative Bags so much fun......and they're all on clearance!
Page number seven gives a great journalling spot.  Those sweet little babies grow up so quickly, and new moms want to capture every precious memory.  I always try to include special places for journalling when I create mini albums.
And finally....."Page number Eight" isn't really a page at all.  It's actually the back cover of the mini album.  I put a tiny little tab on the back so that Mom can either put the baby's name on the album, the year of baby's birth, or some other special journalling memory.  Every little tab, pocket and cubby are what makes mini albums so special.  And trust me, Really Reasonable Ribbon has EVERYTHING you can dream of to help create your next adorable mini album for any occasion.

We're all SO grateful to have you stop by today; and we REALLY hope that you will join our current challenge taking place now.  You can check it out right here on this link for the CURRENT CHALLENGE.
