There is definitely a "mom life" theme throughout Oh My Heart! So when Steffi Ried's mini album all about her life as a mom showed up in my inbox and I started reading the journaling details, it really spoke to me and makes me want to be a better mom! My favorite quote she wrote is this one: "A GOOD MOM has bad days & great days & normal days & overwhelming days & perfect days & trying days & supermom days & just being a mom days & a whole lot of love & real & crazy motherhood days." Right?!?
Hello and welcome to my second post! Today I will show you my first project with the wonderful new collection "Oh My Heart". Isn't it dreamy?! I immediately noticed the sweet heart charms as well as the colorful colors. When I unpacked the many embellishments from the Ephemera Pack, the die cut "mom life" fell into my hands. And then I immediately knew the theme of my mini album. I created an album in the "Travel Journal" style. As a mom of a small daughter, the pink paper fits perfectly. I used photos of myself with my daughter in different sizes which makes the album more interesting. I am in LOVE with this stunning collection.
For the cover I used the great stamps from Oh My Heart. I applied the flower stamp with white embossing powder for a neat texture then I attached the title with 3D glue dots.
The album is 3.5x 7". The inside pages have different sizes. First I cut the papers including some vellum and folded them in the middle. With a sewing machine I stitched it down the middle. A super easy way to create an album. Then I decorated the inside. On the first page I used a big photo and on the right side I used a chipboard "love" sticker and "you" mini alphabet stickers.
On the next page I added a small photo and some journaling which is inside the folded photo.
The paper with the hearts is totally sweet. I kept this page very simple with the small black and white photo. On the other side I glued some pretty flower die cuts. I added details to the flowers with machine stitching.
In the middle of the album I glued a black and white photo. With the beautiful embellishments you can create a nice page very easily.
On the left side, a small pocket is hidden between the pages which are glued together. Therein is another paper with a photo.
Aren't the book chipboard stickers great?! My daughter loves to read books. I often read aloud to her.
Behind a book I created a small page that can be opened. The text is written with a typewriter and I added machine stitching details.
On this page I cut out more flowers from the patterned paper and put them on the photo. On the vellum paper I sewed a small confetti pocket filled with sequins.
There is another big photo on the last page again. Similar to the first layout I made for this team, I sewed on it for a beautiful texture.
To close the album, I wrapped twine around the middle three times and attached a tag and a heart charm.
I hope you like my album and are interested in playing with the new collection soon! I can recommend it to you. I'm sooo in love!
