Mother’s Day for Grandma

This is the project I made in 2008 for Mother’s Day.  I just ran across the photos while scrapbooking and thought I should share this here.  There are several versions out there for a word-shaped mini album.  This is my version I created in Photoshop Elements.  I created a “mask” for each letter with a rectangle and Cafe Rojo font.  I used digital papers and stamps from Designer Digitals; and other rub-ons, flowers, and ribbons from my stash.

This quote says “Few things are more delightful than grandchildren fighting over your lap.”

This project involved a lot of cutting, I remember, because each letter had to be cut out three times:  once for the regular side, once for the reverse side, and once in chipboard.  (Multiplied by two for two mothers.)  That was before I was really using the Silhouette much, but these days I would have shortened the work by cutting everything but the chipboard with the Silhouette.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  It made me happy seeing these pictures again.

UPDATE 4/20/2015:  See my updated blog post for cutting and assembling this grandma album {here}. It includes all the links to download the template or cutting file, plus links to make your own word album from scratch. Click the image below.
