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 “Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.”


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.
