I have been busy making a baby scrapbook for my friend and her baby Izzy. This is a new way for me to scrapbook because I am making the book for her first year ahead of time. I usually pick my paper to coordinate what is in the picture ~ clothing colors, background, etc. I bought a baby girl pad of papers at Michaels along with some solid pink, orange and green papers.
I made all of my photo mats 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 so all mom has to do is stick down the photo. I positioned some of them horizintal and some vertical. I also put a pocket for a tag on each page so mom can journal on it. I put in a 2 page layout for Grandparents, cousins and Firsts.
I used the font from Nursery Rhymes ~ my new favorite font!!
I am showing a couple of pages here!
I made pockets for the tags. Mom can put a small photo on one side and journal on the back. I included a list of suggestions to use (first tooth, roll over, crawl, haircut, etc.) and I have extra tags for her just in case.
This was a fun project but it really stretched my brain!
