Royal Birth Princess Mini Album

A few years back, one of my friends did a class with the best poem!  I loved the poem so much that I made my own version of the "Princess Album" for one of my friends daughters.  This book is just a bitty little album measuring about 3" square.  I loved how easy it was to put together.  Just pictures and a few embellishments, and ooh-la... a personal yet inexpensive gift!
I mainly used cardstock for this album.  I did add in a little patterned paper for accent.  I also used random rubons and stickers that I had lying around.  I punched a small hole in the edge of the covers to thread the ribbon through. 

I printed the entire poem out on cardstock and then cut it apart for each page.  Check out that vintage teal cute!

I liked the look of adding a photo on one side of each page.  I wanted the photos to stand out and be the focal point.

A little circle punched patterned paper gives this page a fun look

I love the softness of the white rubon overlapping the wording. These were a flourish pack from American Crafts.

I always like to leave a little signature on a handmade gift so that the recipient remembers where it came from and knows they are special to me.

I love the sweet message of this poem.  It is a good reminder for all of us. Here is the entire poem again (I have definitely changed out the wording to Prince to make it work for little boys too)

I am a child of royal birth.
My Father is King of Heaven and Earth.
My spirit was born on the courts of high.
A daughter beloved, A Princess am I!


  1. We missed you today :) I love this poem and wish I'd had it a week ago when I put together my daughter's baptism book. What a beautifully done book! You are amazingly talented. What font is that?

  2. I missed you guys too. I am trying to convince her to do one more Monday with us! The font is called 2 Peas Chatter. It is one of my favorites.

  3. This is adorable. TFS! Bug Hugs :D

  4. Hi Kelly,

    I loved finding your blog. You are the most creative and talented person I know. I miss you. Hopefully next time I'm in Utah we can meet up. I hope things are going well for you.
