A quote on white parchment paper and a note for the little girl to add a photo of her choosing in the small pocket at the bottom of the page.
This spread focuses on her mom, an important person in a little girl’s life. Buttons are inexpensive, easy, and make cute embellishments for a scrapbook.
A bookmark and a photo of her mom holding little brother were tucked in the corner pocket.
Ribbon is another inexpensive embellishment that can be tied into bows, braided to use for borders or ties to hold the book together.
The theme for this spread is Valentine’s Day.
Photo of her mom and dad’s wedding and an envelope to stash secrets in, which fits in the pockets.
Holidays make fun themes for various spreads. In these pages, Easter and spring are featured.
I didn’t have a lot of embellishments for the 4th of July spread, but I found some cool pictures in a magazine and used glitter glue applied with a toothpick to give a fireworks effect.
Summer is a great theme and offers all kinds of fun ideas to add to the pages. For the border, dots of acrylic paint are applied by dipping the the non-brush tip of a small paintbrush into the paint and dotting along the edge of the pages.
Dotted paint borders are an inexpensive way to add a colorful touch to any altered art project.
What else is important to a little girl? School days, of course!
Another fun holiday theme is Halloween. I had a blast designing this spread.
Autumn and Thanksgiving made a nice theme for these pages.
Christmas is always bright and cheerful. I enjoyed working on this spread.
What else is important in a child’s life? You guessed it, their birthday!
Friends, especially best friends, are important in a little girl’s life.
More fun stuff for these next pages. Cute scrapbook quotes are great to use for embellishments.
An adorable photo from when she was a toddler was the perfect focal point for these pages.
More quotes and a pocket cut from an old pair of blue jeans made a cute spread. The border is made out of braided ribbon yarn.
The back cover is embellished with macramae. It fits with the Hawaiian theme.
