Cut round 12 frames from white cardstock using eyelet circle small & basics die. Apply glitter on all frames. Cut pictures of babies using circle die. Paste pictures on album and glue frames.

To decorate pages, stamp some sweet shoppe treats images using black Archival on water color paper and paint with Zig markers. Cut images with coordinating dies. Cut some sentiments and small tags from designer paper using dies. Cut some designer paper using arrow dies to create banners. Glue elements on all pages as shown.

To create closer, stamp and cut bow using cupcake stamp and die. Paint using Zig markers. Cut a strip of white cardstock measures 1/2" x 5". Glue bow on the center of the strip. Fussy cut the strip around the bow to create clean look. Glue magnet on one end of strip. Paste other side of the strip on back side of cupcake. Our magnetic closure is ready.
