This month we got to do something that wasn’t our “norm”. I mostly create layouts, but I like to create mini albums, too….I just don’t do them nearly as much as I would like. So I challenged myself to make some this month! This post has a LOT of photo, so bear with me!
This first album was actually inspired by the Glitz Pretty In Pink Whatnots. This pack contains die cuts that are numbered 1-12. Since my little guy just turned 1 in , I thought they would be perfect for for a mini showing a photo from each month of this life since the day he was born.

This 2nd album I started in my head a long time ago when I got my first pack of Glitz Whatnots (I think it was from a kit club that I subscribed to at the time). There were some great phrases on some of the die cuts. At first I was going to make some type of wall decor, but as time went on, I kept piling up all of the Glitz goodies that had phrases that I loved. I kept everything in one bag and decided it was time to put it in an album.
The album covers are Whatnot pieces backed with pattern paper. I stitched some Tulle on the edges of the front and back covers to act as a binding (although the pages are held together with twine, too). Some paint, transparency, stickers and die cuts on the front.
The pages are a mix of Paper Layers, Whatnots, and Peek-A-Boos.I was originally just going to have a book of the sayings, but after I put all the pages together, I had to add in some photos of my kiddos. I picked 5 of my daughter and 5 of my son that are my favorites from the past few months. I stitched around each photo and added a butterfly to each page.
