Pretty Paper Studio's 6x6" Paper Pad Blog Hop

by - July 22, 2012


Hiya! You must be here from Irene's blog, ya? Isn't her photo display stand too gorgeous for words? I don't know how she does it. Or rather any of my PPS DT mates! I hope you don't feel my brag book is too plain compared to their's. lolz. 

This one is special for me. It's for Vibhaa, my friend Lejna's daughter who just turned one. Lejna didn't know anything about this. This is a surprise gift from me. I used some of her Facebook photos and got the rest from her husband. Aren't I clever? teehee

Let me show you all the pages. I've kept few pages blank so that Lejna can add some journal or thoughts of her own. I thought an interactive gift would be more fun and after all a mom knows best about her child, right? 








The chipboard album is from Maya Road and papers from Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection. I used loads of Prima Chalk Inks to ink the sides of the album.  
My initial plan was to make a wall hanging using ribbons. But once I glued the photos on, I felt that there wasn't enough margin to punch holes on two sides. So I decided to go with a brag book. This is the first time, I've actually made one. I hope Lejna likes it. :)

I also made a scrapbook page and a card using Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook 6x6" paper pad and Amy Tangerine Sketchbook Indigo Inspiration 12x12" paper, Die-Cut shapes. I tried to doodle a bit using American Crafts Precision Pen. Have I told you that I love those pens? It's best for the scrapbooker in me. :) Alpha: Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Charmed Peapod







Now hop on to Shruti's blog and leave some love. If you comment on all the blogs you would get a chance to win a gorgeous 6x6" paper pad from Authentique called Journey. Incase you get lost in the hop, here's a list to get you back:
