Really Reasonable Ribbon & Hampton Arts Blog Hop

Hello everyone and Welcome to Really Reasonable Ribbon & Hampton Arts Blog Hop! You will want to grab your favorite drink and enjoy the Hop! There is a LOT of inspiration going on with both DT's combined! Enjoy!!
You should have arrived from Gini's Blog if not you will want to start at the beginning Hampton Arts Blog

So on to my Lil' Darlings Mini Album. For the album I used 2 8 1/2" x 8" Fabscraps Chipboard pieces and then cut them in half to equal 4 1/2 x 8

I covered my album in Graphic45 Design Paper and then used LOTS of Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also distress the entire album using Hampton Arts Color Box Chalks. For the cover I created a pocket, and added a tag, on the tag I stamped the Lil Darlings Stamps that Hampton Arts Carries, here is a photo showing the tag. I also used CottageCutz Christening Gown die, and in my video you will see all details of this album.

On the front of my album I used Pink Silky Crush ribbon to hold my album together. I also used the silky crush to create the flower. For my bow I used Pink satin, and Pink Seam binding. On the bottom of the album I used the Blue Crocheted Lace, and for the tag I used the Pink Crocheted lace. Both are Beautiful!!!

To distress I used Hampton Arts Color Box Chalks in these colors throughout:
Pink Pastel, Creamy Brown, Toffee, Chestnut Roan
For the 2 pages above, I used Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink Gingham, Beatrice Lace, and Pink Sheer Box pleated trim. I stamped "Sent from Heaven" with Hampton Arts Graphic45 Lil'Darling 2 set found HERE!

On the 2 pages above I used CottageCutz Love tags, and the baby Hangers and then distressed with Hampton Arts Chalks. I added RRR Beatrice Lace, and then the Green Gingham Ribbon. I lastly added buttons.

Now for the top page below, you will see on the White Tags, I stamped the Flower from the Hampton Arts "THINK PINK" stamp set. I thought the flower was perfect for this baby mini album!
