No. 16 Mini Album by Dedra Long


Hi everyone! I wanted to share a mini album today featuring a mix of the Memories and Stationery Noted Collections. This binder clipboard album was perfect for documenting Shelby's 16th birthday.


I still love the file folders that come with every collection. This one from the Stationery Noted collection became the base of my cover page. Super fun! Oh, and product packaging is so cute these days, don't be afraid to use it when you like it.


We handmade all of her invitations and I had her fill them all out in her handwriting. I know my handwriting has changed since I was 16 and I think she will love seeing her invitations when she is my age. Enamel dots....be still my heart! Who thought this little embellishment could be so awesome!


I'm going to be completely honest here, every time we see a new collection from Teresa I can't wait to see the stamps she designed. It is my most favorite thing. I gotta get better at embossing with stamps like Keisha.


I had her friends write notes to her (the notes turned out to be mini novels).





I loved that this album turned out to be a little more interactive using file folders, pockets and envelopes to hold extra photos and to incorporate memorabilia as well.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
Hope your "hump" day is fabulous.
