Nieces and their kids

I made this book for my parents for Christmas It's a little envelope mini with all her grandkids and great grandkids. Which of course would be my nieces and great nieces. This is the front cover. I used PION paper thru out this album. I love the international line of paper. So gorgeous. If you would like to see what PION has out, just check over at the flying Unicorn shop. The chippie swirl which I inked green is from 3tailscraft. If you'd like to see what else they have, just just the link to the right of my page. It will bring you right there. The flower is from Prima and the butterflies are all downloads that I cut.

This is page 1 and 2. These kids are from my oldest brothers son or my parents oldest son. They have five children. Bless their hearts. It took four boys before they finally got their little girl. The leaf chippies are from 3tailscrafts. I actually colored those with a glitter pen. I wanted it to be shiny and pretty. The butterflies are cutouts that I doubled up on. There are also pockets at each end to add more pictures or for any journaling you'd like to add about the family.

This would be page 3 and 4. This is my Niece with her son. She is also the daughter of my oldest brother. The lampost is from 3tailscraft which I colored and added little rose buds that I buy from Iamroses and more tiny butterfly cutouts. Now this little man is quite the character and the picture of him with that adorable hat will make for a really nice vintage layout some day.
Page 5 and 6 are from my youngest sisters son. They have two beautiful children. I used those cute little toadstool chippies from 3tailscraft which I inked and colored and added some butterflies on top. The little blue flower has a lady bug sitting in it's center.

Page 7 and 8 is also a son from my youngest sisters boy. They just had a little girl. I haven't had the chance to see her in person yet but I hear she's beautiful. I've had quite a few comments about how adorable her photo is. The vine is of course from 3tailscraft. Can you tell I love their chippies. lol I added some tiny flowers to it and also some going up the side of the babies photo. The flowers are very delicate, small and pretty and can be found at Iamroses website. I used lots of lace thru out and I buy most of my lace from Lace Heaven, which I also have a link to. Thanks so much for your visit to my blog.


  1. this is stunning! How cute! I'm going to have to try something like this!

  2. Just beautiful. Wish I could work with lace and flowers with such ease. You're a natural!
