Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Anything Goes'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I am loving making mini albums and one of my new favorite collections is Echo Park's 'Hello Baby' boy collection. Whimsy Stamps Jungle Babies stamp set works perfectly with this boy collection. I made a matching welcome baby card to go with the album.

I stamped the lion image twice and colored them both in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut them out.

For the card I used papers from the Hello Baby collection along with the Whimsy Stamps pierced and stitched circles die set to make a focal point on the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Jungle Babies set and cut it into a banner. I added some baker's twine and enamel dots and finished off the card by rounding the corners of a standard A2 white card base.

For the mini album I used a tutorial from My Sisters Scrapper. Here is the YouTube link:
The album cover measures 6-1/4" x 6-1/4" with each page measuring 
5-3/4" x 5-3/4".

I used Whimsy Stamps wavy Edgers die set to cut the scalloped border, added one of the 3"x4" journal cards and the colored lion to the front of the album. I added some ribbon and charms from my stash to finish it off.


The spine measures 2-1/2" and I just added a small 'Baby's First Year' sticker from the collection. I left the back of the album plain with just the patterned paper.

All stickers and embellishments have been left 'open' over the photo mats to allow you to slide photos behind them.

Inside the front cover is a booklet with a magnetic flap, which can hold 3"x4" photos or journal spots.

The next page has a magnetic flap which opens out to the right to reveal a large 4"x4" photo mat.

Turning over, the next double spread has a large journal spot alongside a belly band containing 2 cut aparts from the collection. More photos and journalling can be added here.

The next page has a magnetic flap which opens out the the left to reveal a large 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" photo mat along with a pocket containing a 3"x4" journal card (and more space for photos).

The following page consists of 2 small 'envelope' style pages, each containing a large page for journalling or photos. The right side page has a large spot for a photograph or journalling.

The next page has a large magnetic flap which opens to the left to reveal a large photo mat and super cute 3" x 4" cut apart.

On the right page there is a booklet tied with some baker's twine. This open to reveal another booklet containing journal and photo spots.

The next page consists of a belly band coating 2 cup aparts from the collection and more room for adding photos.

On the right hand side is a magnetic booklet, with a hidden pocket inside.

The next page consists of a magnetic flap opening to the right. 

This contains 2 smaller tags and reveals a large photo mat also.

All pages contain a pull out mat measuring 5-1/2" x 5-1/4" for photos, journalling and even has space for more pull outs and photographs.
