January Diva Dare-Day 5

Good morning, it is Teresa and it is my turn to share with you my interpretation of this months theme "Baby Love".  The theme explanation is as follows.

We dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Baby Love! The baby part could be for a new little someone...or a special someone! Be sure to look for the details on how you can win some new Verve goodies at the end of this post!

I have been wanting to make one of these journal/mini photo album ever since I seen this one that Alex made.  You use Starbucks coffee cup sleeves, so cool don't ya think?  I luv the idea, well because I am a huge fan of Starbucks.  

I have used four sleeves, painted them a cream color and sewed the bottoms shut so that I can use it for a journal card or to add photos.  I have used designer papers from Making Memories, it is the Je t'adore collection.  I used the heart and classy label from the Love Notes set and the Vintage Oval Stamp and die.

I used glass glitter again...sigh.....I adore the look it gives to anything, you can add it to an edge or like I did here the entire heart shape.

I punched holes in the side and used an circle ring to bind them together.  I also made journaling cards using the ticket die from Lifestyles to go into the sleeves.  I used the set Text Objects to stamp across the bottoms.

 Another page of the mini album, a button and bakers twine accent this page.
This is the completed mini album, I hope you like it and I dare you to create your very own Baby Love creation!
