Celebrating special moments with a project handmade makes it sweeter! It truly makes those special moments last longer. Today, we have two great projects to inspire you for Mother's Day from Donna Espiritu and Katie Zoey Ho! Then, we will share a layout that is perfect for a truly special moment from the amazing Arlene Cuevas. You will leave with so many great ideas today!
First, Donna shares this incredible tag mini album for Mother's Day. Moms are truly worthy to be celebrated!
"I made this simple tag mini-album using the staples like the metal clock keys, ivory tags and square ivory tag album. The May papers in the Children's Hour collection is perfect for the projec idea. I kept the pages where you put the photos simple. Perfect as gift to our pretty mommies on Mother's day or birthdays or those 'just because' days." ~Donna

Then, Katie shares a perfect "Inspire" tag for those moms who truly inspire us everyday.
"Made this inspire tag for this Mother’s Day; handy enough to gift for mothers. Mothers are source of inspirations, aren’t they regardless of how good or bad they are? We may not have perfect mothers, however somehow or rather they do inspire us at some point of our lives. I hereby wish all mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day!" ~Katie
"I created this 12x12 layout of my niece Cadence to commemorate her very first ballet recital. I used A Ladies’ Diary Deluxe Collector’s Edition pack and some extra design papers from my old 12x12 and 8x8 A Ladies Diary paper pads. This is one of my all time favorite Graphic 45 paper collections and I’m excited it has resurfaced as a DCE!" ~Arlene
