Paper: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip
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 is the last layout in the scrapbook since the babies were both born in October of 2005. I decided to do a dog-themed layout since both families have dogs, and I figured since the babies would be almost a year old they’d be old enough to crawl after the dogs and things like that. Plus I like dogs, hehe. I got the stamp set off eBay and had to put on my cranky-pants to keep from being outbid, but I wanted it particularly for this project. The big white space on the left page is an inner mat for a 5x7 photo; the Ruby Red layer is stamped with paw prints and bones in Chocolate Chip. There are spaces for three 4x6 pictures and two 4x4 pictures.
