My Mommy's Birthday Gift

Well, today is the is my mom's birthday. Which means I can FINALLY share this project with you. A while over a year won a gift certificate to the Creative Cuts and More online store. I knew right away that I wanted to get THIS album kit. I just loved it! I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for too. Each year my mother, my girls, and I have a cookie baking day. We choose a few recipes and spend the day baking. So, I thought it would be fun to use this album kit to make my mom a photo album of our baking day. First let me say...this kit is SOOOO worth the money. It comes with everything you need and MORE to make an adorable apron shaped album. It was so fun to use too. Well here is what I came up with.
Front of the album:The reverse side of the little gingerbread man in the front pocket:Front of the pages:Back of the pages:The "special memories" page: The "special memories" books:Isn't it adorable???!!!! I just love how easy it was to put together too.
One of my favorite pages is the "recipes for love" page. I used one of the pocket pages that came with the kit for this one. In the pocket, I made 3 little "books" (they are just like a little card). Each one is labeled with one of the girls' names. On the inside, I had the girls write a special note/memory about baking with Nana. It was so sweet to hear what they had to say. So I can't wait to see her reaction when I give this to her later today! If you like this album kit, head on over the the Creative Cuts and More site and pick one up. They also have other album kits, and LOTS of die cuts for sale.
Thanks for stopping by today!
