Then I added the "create" portion of the title by first putting the Thickers on a clear ruler so I could position them correctly above the portion I hand stitched.

I often create mini albums for my kids' grandparents for various holidays. I thought I would change things up for the album I created for my mom for Mother’s Day this year and frame a mini album. It was a fast easy Mother’s Day gift! I started by creating my album with white cardstock. The frame I wanted to use holds a 4x6 photo so I cut my cardstock a little bit smaller and made sure to leave room at the top for the rings that hold the album together. I have 3 kids and I wanted each of them to have two pages in the album (one for a photo and one for journaling).
After I had my pages cut I was ready to get to work. I gathered lots of supplies from the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection, Amy Tangerine’s Plus One collection, and the DIY Shop collection.
I started creating with the cover. I used a bit of a scalloped Kraft colored banner on the cover. I embellished it with rub ons, ribbon, a wood veneer tag, and Thickers for my title.
Each of the inside pages of the album contained a photo on the upper portion and a journaling pocket with a card on the bottom. I gave each of my kids a journling card and let them write a special message to their Grammy,
I kept the embellishments to a minimum because I wanted the photos and journaling to shine on this project. When I had finished my album I clamped them all together so I could punch the holes evenly.
After I had the holes punched I covered the back part of the frame. The portion behind the glass where the photo would go with patterned paper. (I left the glass out of the frame entirely.)
Now it was time to adhere my album to the frame. I did this with very strong double sided tape.
Only the back page of the album is adhered to the frame. There rest of the album is held together with small binder rings.
And that’s all there is to it! Now my mom will have an adorable mini album to put on her desk, complete with a few photos and journaling from her grandkids. Happy Mother’s Day!
