Magical Mother Goose Mini & More

Clare Charvill Mini Album Chest Pic 9

Good Day, G45ers!

Who has used the fabulous Mother Goose? Doesn't it just have the most whimsical children's imagery? It brings back so many memories of yesteryear while still using fresh and vibrant colors perfect for today! Annette Green and Clare Charvill shows us how fun this collection is to use today. Annette has made a magical Mother Goose mini album. Clare shares a wonderful altered cabinet and mini! You will adore both of them.

A magical world of fairy tales await your crafting table with Mother Goose. Each page will bring joy!


Annette gives the greatest idea of a mini for your baby or as a gift! What a great way to memorialize those precious memories with your children? Mother Goose has been such a popular children's book for so long, it transcends the years. You will love her video tutorial of this wonderful mini album.

"Although my 'baby' is now 16, I still love making baby cards and baby albums. You never know when someone is going to have a baby! So when the Mother Goose collection came out, I knew I had to make a little tag album with it. With its vintage style Mother Goose imagery I remember from my childhood, this paper brings back fond memories. This would make a great mini album for a new mom or even a grandparent so they can show off their little bundle of joy." ~Annette

Clare shares a beautiful altered cabinet with fantastic minis in each section. Great chipboard and fussy cut pieces through out.

"How cute is this little display cabinet. It came flat packed and ready to decorate in one of our DT packages a while back and was really fun to put together. It has the outers for the little albums already cut to size and was the perfect project to use 8 x 8 papers on. I used black card to make up the albums and then combined papers, tags and banners from the Mother Goose collection to decorate the case and the middle album the other two albums have blank pages like little mini scrap books." ~Clare

Great idea to include multiple albums inside for as the child grows. With so many memories to document, these minis should help!

I love Annette's Mother Goose album so much that I have made 7 of them now. I gave one to my friend and one to her daughter in law, they both loved them. The other five are put away for my great grand children whenever they may be born. None of my grandchildren are even married yet. That is how much I love this album. Annette's instruction is so easy to follow. Go ahead make one I will bet you do two instead. Have fun... Thanks Annette and G45 for awesome papers and ideas.
