Handmade 6x6 Mini Baby Boy Album

I had so much fun making this album for my nephew.
I followed a My Sister's Scrapper tutorial, link is in the description of the Video of the finished album.
A handmade Baby Album needs it's own handmade gift box.

The top of the gift box.
The side of the lid.

The finished spine of the album.
This is a pic of the cover before I finished it, please see the video linked above for the finished cover as I added another fussy cut piece.
I couldn't get the die cuts from this range so I fussy cut from a sheet of the paper, backed them onto cardstock and fussy cut again, which took a while with my hand issues.
This is a pic from my work in progress of the inside cover, you can see the finished project in the video.
The page on the right I cut a second piece of paper so it would line up with the paper underneath.
Inside of the fold out.
I stuck this pocket scrapping card down so it would form a pocket as seen in the video.
I later added a badge/flair to the top corner of the right hand page.
I adhered the pocket scrapping card down so it will form a pocket.
I just love these hand and foot print die cuts, so cute.
A teddy bear charm from a pack I collected when making myself a Firefly themed charm for my Filofax.
I finished these pages off with Yellow photo mats.
The buttons from my stash went so well with these stickers.
Couldn't resist creating a clothesline with these cute stickers and some tiny pegs over a journalling card.
I created a pocket behind the 2 pocket scrapping cards and another small pocket for the journalling tags with the top pocket scrapping cards.
Another pocket created with the pocket scrapping cards.
I added dimension with the hexagon die cuts, they are larger than the hexagons on the card but I love the effect, they are adhered down with foam tape.
I didn't get to finish the inside of the cover but using the BABY BOY die cut blocks with some foam tape worked a treat on the back page.

I really loved creating this and can't wait to create another mini album.
