You can imagine the fun we are going to have this month with the endless possibilities these paper packs offer! To get you started, I have a tag album featuring the Baby Giggles pack. I planned this as a present for a little girl who’s fond of animals!

I will keep talking to a minimum on this post so you can get to the real fun part where you link your project! I’ll quickly take you through the steps I followed in making this tag mini album in an altered box.

  1. I picked out a few sheets from the Baby Giggles pack–I kept off the very obviously baby-themed sheets because my album isn’t for a baby. When I worked on Baby Boo, I mentioned how these packs are not restricted to baby projects. Here’s an example of how you can come up with creations for toddlers and even children using these packs. Once I knew which sheets I wanted to use, I picked out supplies to embellish my pages, and also picked a few scrap sheets of paper from older projects (all supplies from the store) to use as fillers.

2. I chose this box and altered it retaining most of it’s original design.

3. To make the pages of the album, I cut out six 3.5″ square pieces of white cardstock. The photomats for these pages are 3.25″ square.

4. I created a few elements for layering with my photomats. Apart from these banners and tags, I created shaker tags out of acetate sheets and organza fabric from the store.

5. I sewed around the photomats, created shaker tags on the sewing machine, and used a sticker sheet from the store and strips of acetate to add bobbly animals to each page.

The sentiments will have to wait until after I am done sticking pictures in this album. I hope to share the filled album in the future. Until then, here are pics of the finished project.

Thank you for stopping by, everyone! I hope you will now break out your Little Birdie linen papers and play along! If you’d like to browse more projects featuring the qualifying paper packs, here are a few of my recent projects using these:

We are looking forward to your entries!

Happy crafting!
