Ink: Sage Shadow; Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, and Ballet Blue markers
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 project was the reason why I got Hearts & Clovers, and I don’t think I’ve used it much since I made these books. I did the flower border on the 5x7 photo, the clover border under the title, and the placement of the clover “leaves” on the larger blocks with a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. I wasn’t real thrilled with how this one came out but I suppose not every layout can be your favorite!
