"Mom I love you because..." Album by OMC designer Machelle!

Supplies Used:

Crate Paper : Emma’s Shoppe Collection Paper Pack
Oh My Crafts : Walnut Vinyl
Bazzill Basics : 8X8 Chipboard Album
Bazzill Basics : 8X8 Chipboard Dividers
Prima : Classic Lace Flowers
Prima : Heart Desire Collection Flowers
Prima : Pebbles
Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter
Clearsnap : Color Box Stamp Pad - Espresso
Miscellaneous Ribbon


1. Cut and cover each of the album pages with paper from the Emma’s Shoppe Collection from Crate Paper.
Ink all of the edges with the espresso stamp pad. Layer different patterned papers from the paper pack to create spaces for photos. Use printed stickers, chipboard, and other embellishments from the paper pack (or leftovers from your scrap room!) to decorate the pages as desired.
2. Using the Silhouette machine, type and cut out the phrase “Mom I love you because…” using the walnut vinyl.  After cutting the vinyl, use the transfer tape to apply the phrase to the front cover. Attach flowers, ribbons, and other embellishments as desired.


3. Make a list of several reasons why you love your mom, one reason for each page of the album. Type and cut them out using the Silhouette machine and the walnut vinyl. Place the vinyl phrases on each of the covered album pages and add embellishments as desired. Don't forget to include paper mats for your favorite pictures of your mom!

4. Cover the inside of the front and back cover with pink cardstock. Ink the edges with the espresso stamp pad. Cut out the "Happy Mother's Day" phrase in the walnut vinyl. Use transfer tape to place the phrase on back cover.

Tip: Use transfer tape to attach all vinyl letters to your album. It's one of the reasons we love using vinyl! You can attach the phrases all in one swoop - no more gluing letters on one by one.

Happy Mother's Day!
