Mothers Day Scrapbook Gift

A Mothers day Scrapbook by Tracy

I made this mini-album for my mother for Mother's Day, using Cricut Design Studio. I used the square from George and the Base Camp font.

I cut the pages out of cereal boxes! These are about 4x5. Then I cut the designs again out of patterned paper to cover each side. (The paper is heavy and embossed.)

I cut the shadowed letters out of cereal boxes as well, and used a shiny, pearl pink paper to cover.

I painted the edges of the pages and letters with pink paint, then went back over that with a pearl glaze.

Once the paint was dry, I punched the edges with my Bind It All, and bound with a 1" antique brass o-wire. Before binding, I inserted the crocheted doily, some mulberry paper, and a couple of torn vellum sheets.

I looked up some mother-related quotes and printed them out. I cut into small squares, inked the edges and adhered some to each page, along with flowers, pearls, etc.
