Happy 1st Birthday Mini Album

Good Tuesday Morning, to you! Did you have a good long weekend? We went to my parents for the weekend and had a lot of fun visiting my family and eating good food. The entire family went out to a restaurant for the very first time (we tend not to take the girls out to eat very much - it's just easier at this point) and it was really nice to be out with everyone. The girls also had fun playing with their cousins and we even did a photo shoot and I can't wait to scrap those pictures. We came home Sunday evening and then I was able to go out and do a little shopping yesterday. And that was fun for me! :) And today I am very excited for the girls to start Tiny Tumblers at the YMCA. We tried it out later in the spring and the girls loved it so we decided to have them start again this fall. I'm anxious to see how they do this time around. 

Today I have a mini album to share that I created using a Melissa Frances bingo album, glassine envelopes and lots of the the "Confetti" collection by American Crafts. I chose my favorite photos from the girls 1st birthday party and put them together in the album. 

I cut open the glassine envelopes on each side and then punched holes on one side to put in the album. I reinforced each hole with a punched cardstock star. The envelopes open at the cupcake sticker.

For this envelope, I printed wallet size photos of all the party guests and created an accordion fold to fit inside the envelope.

I had even more party guests to fit inside this envelope. 

And there you have it! It is a pretty simple album design and didn't take too long to do. And I love the vintage looking album paired with the bright pops of color from the Confetti collection. 

Have a great Tuesday (even if it feels like Monday!) :)
