Celebrate Birthday Album

A few weeks ago a dear friend of mine celebrated her 50th Birthday. A bunch of friends got together for a Girls Night Out to celebrate. I'm always the photographer in our group, so I made her this little flip album to hold some of the photos from that night.

I'm having so much fun with the Build a Blossom stamps and matching punch! This big blossom was stamped in Melon Mambo and then Rock 'n Rolled in Cajun Craze before stamping on the Pumpkin Pie cardstock. After I assembled it, I sprayed it with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz for some nice sparkle. As you flip open the album, there are spots to add the photos and fun embellishments. Since I shared this with her before I added the photos, I also stamped the mats where the photos would go.
 Here's what it looks like with some photos...
Don't you just love my friends birthday glasses?! lol She was a good sport and posed in the glasses & sombrero so I got lots of good photos. Here's a look at a couple of my favorite embellishments I added to the album.
The margarita glass was cut with a Sizzix die and the border along the side is one of the adhesive borders from the Ice Cream Parlor Scrappin' Kit (FREE during SAB).
I couldn't make a birthday album and not use my Build a Cupcake Punch, now could I? I didn't adhere the bottom part of the 50 to the page so that I could easily slide in the photograph under it. For this album I used the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack in Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry.

On May 1st I am offering a class to make another version of this album using the Springtime Vintage Papers. That is such a pretty paper pack, and it will make the perfect keepsake album for Mother's Day photos. So, if you are in my area, sign up now to hold your spot. I could also make this a kit to go class if there is enough interest.

Thanks for stopping by...ENJOY your day!

Love this! I was wondering, did you use vellum on the glass? What color of green cs did you use. I love all of your work.
