Good morning and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! One of the greatest joys of my life is being a mother to three amazing (and now grown up) kids! I lost my own mom to cancer in 2015, but my wonderful and amazing mother-in-law is still strong and healthy at age 80! I love her more than I can say! I really hit the mother-in-law jackpot!
I am sticking to my plan and working on the home decor panels that I started last year! This 6" x 6" chipboard-wrapped home decor panel was made with the NEW Flawless Collection! I have used this collection a bunch, and I am in danger of using it all up! I just love pink and black together!
You can convert this chipboard panel in to a 6" x 6" Mother's Day card if you wish! Since my mother-in-law much prefers getting flower to getting handmade cards, I am going to keep this for myself and display it on my desk all month! 

I love to change out the decor in my home, especially around my desk and in my studio. If you would like to see more information about this project, and see a tutorial for making a panel for yourself, visit my blog HERE. I also have a list of all the panels I have made so far!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day everyone!  I hope you all are staying healthy & safe. Mother's Day took a whole new meaning for me some seven years ago with the birth of my son. Having him introduced me to the world of motherhood & let's just say that I finally understood many things about my own mom when I became a mom myself.

I'm fortunate to have my mom still with me.  She's in her early 80's and in relatively good health.  For my Mother's Day project, I've created another version of a cascading mini album. I've used the lovely 'Flawless' collection for my project.

The album measures 5" x 3 3/4" inches with two 2" inch spines. I've decorated the outside of the album with a mini mushroom bird & fabric flowers.

The album is held closed with magnets.

The album consists of 10 pocket pages.  Each pocket page measures 4 3/4" x 3 1/4" inches. Inside each pocket there are photo mats measuring 4 1/2"x 3 1/2" inches. Each photo mat is decorated with a cut-apart from the collection.

I've further decorated the borders of every pocket with silver washi tape. The backs of each pocket were all decorated with the coordinating Spectrum card stock 'Tickled Pink'.

The pages are attached with an accordion binding to the album. 

The first pocket page is attached to the front cover of the album with magnets. All pages of the album can extend giving the album a cascading effect.

Here's a side view of the album. As shown, the accordion binding is not attached to the album itself.

This album would provide a unique way for storing pictures & journaling of mom or for mom. Below is a video walkthrough of the album.  Enjoy & stay safe!

Supplies Used: Flawless Collection, Other: Mushroom Bird, Fabric Flowers, Magnets
