Mother's Day gift ideas 

Hello, dear Ladies! My mother always loves to get something handcrafted, and I try to surprise her with new ideas every year! This year I decided to create a teeny-tiny mini album for her that she can easily put in her purse, take everywhere and use as a keychain!

Sunshine & Good Times is my go-to collection for making mini albums, and I wanted to focus on the soft aspects of this line. To create the cover, I trimmed two pieces of heavy cardstock in size 1,5x2” and covered them with light blue Shine Bright paper. I connected them with a piece of striped fabric and adhered a magnet to the back of the front cover. Using magnets to keep close the mini album is one of my favorite technique so far! I placed another magnet between two pieces of pink felt, stitched them together with a ribbon and adhered a pretty flower sticker to the top.

The inner pages of the album have an easy pullout form. I trimmed three different patterned paper stripes, adhered them in line and folded by every 1,25”. I filled the album with family photos and embellished the pages with stickers from the Amy Tangerine sticker book.

I added my journaling to hidden tags, and also asked my daughter to draw a tiny drawing of her and her grandmother. I know my mom will love this tiny surprise from her grandchild!

My second gift idea is a super easy home decoration I created using many different Alpha stickers and paper flowers. I found this lovely quote on Pinterest, and thought that it would be a lovely gift for my mom.

I cut out an oval shape from the Shine Bright patterned paper and backed with a striped Sweetness paper. I created the title using 7 different alphabet stickers and surrounded them with a bunch of beautiful white paper flower.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I wish all the fabulous 'moms' out there a Happy Mother's Day!
