5 Things You Taught Me

My mom taught me so many great life lessons.  Never Give Up.  Believe in Yourself.  Be Kind.  Work Hard...  I thought of her as I made this wall hanging mini album.  I shared a little bit about this project in a previous post, but now I've got more photos to add so you can really see what it looks like.

The cover has some pattern paper covered chipboard, ribbon, a flower that has chunky glitter on it, rhinestones, and some distressing.  Eyelet reinforced holes hold a hand-dyed seam binding so this can be hung on a wall.


Each flap is numbered and has a stamp-embellished 3.5" x 5" cardstock mat for a picture or journaling which is actually another flap which lifts to reveal space for either more journaling or pictures.


Each subsequent flap is a little different but all lift to reveal room for journaling or photos.


All of the papers used are acid- and lignin-free so are safe for your treasured photos.

The papers and embellishments used for this mini album coordinate beautifully and are in a muted pink, green, cream and brown floral garden-y color scheme.



Plenty of room for your photos and a really eye-catching, interactive, cool gift for Mom.


This might even make her cry a little when she opens it, but they'll be tears of joy to see how much you appreciate her and actually listened to her words of wisdom all those years.  :)

See it HERE at Elves In The Attic on Etsy.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
