Paper: Lavender Lace, Barely Banana, Gable Green, Whisper White
Ink: Only Orange, Gable Green
I made “baby’s first year” scrapbooks for two friends of mine last year and I’m just now getting around to posting the pictures. Each month has a two-page layout done in seasonal colors and each one has a space for a 5x7 photo and several smaller ones. I wrote the sizes for the pictures on the mats so the new moms would be able to tell what size pictures they’d need to put in each place. I also left space for journaling (the white block). Titles for each month were done with a Sizzix machine.
This was the first layout I did for the baby books—both babies were born last October so the book actually runs October to September. I got the idea for this layout from the 2004-2005 IBC with the border on the bottom of the page. I tore Barely Banana cardstock and then adhered the cut-out pumpkins on top of it. I stamped the faces in Gable Green on the mat for the 5x7 picture and the white space on the right is for journaling. Since it was the first layout I did, I made some of the pictures weird sizes—mostly I tried to keep it to simple things like 4x6, 4x4, 3x5, but a couple of these were just weird sizes. Learned my lesson and did more standard sizes on the other layouts.
