Baby album...a work in progress

My husband and I are going to become grandparents for the first time and I wanted to make
something special for my daughter, so her and her husband will have something to remember all of the first's and special moments in their little ones first year of life!

Like the title says...this is a work in progress, so Ill be posting new pages as they are finished.

Special Delivery

For this layout I used the following cartridges and measurement.   Sugar and Spice-stork, cut at 4 1/2 inches and Pooh and Friends-grass icon (pg 29) various sizes to give some depth.  I also cut the mats from matching colored cardstock for easy placement of the photo.

                                                                    Splish Splash!

On the rubber duckie layout, I used the following cartridges and measurement.  Sesame Street and Friends-duck (pg 71) cut at 4 1/2 inches, Sponge Bob-bubbles (pg49) icon/shadow, cut at 3/4 and
1 1/4 inches and Sugar and Spice-Bath Time, cut at 3 inches.  I also used Glossy Accent and glitter on the bubbles.  Again, using matching colored cardstock for the photo mat.


                                                                     Sweet Dreams!

Here are the cartridges and measurements I used on the Bed Time layout.  Country Life-sheep
(pg) 41, cut at 2 1/4 inches and Sugar and Spice-Bed Time/moon and stars, cut at 2 inches.  I decided
to make the sheep in pink and blue, since we dont know what the baby will be yet..besides, CUTE!
I also used Glossy Accent on the stars and the lambs legs/ears.  Oh, and I used mini brads for the
little eyes.


                                                             Hap, hap, happy Easter!

And on the final layout for today, I used the following cartridges and measurements.  Easter 2010-
eggs, cut at 3/4 inches and Pooh and Friends-Piglet (pg 41) cut at 5 inches, fence (pg 30) cut
at 4 inches, grass (pg 29) cut at various sizes and clouds (pg 16) icon, cut at various sizes.  I used
Glossy Accent and glitter on the eggs to give a little sparkle and like the other mats, I used matching
colored cardstock to post the photos. 

*For the Piglet layout, I made a card using this design last year for an Easter card and decided that I
liked it so much, that Id have to use it again sometime...Now is sometime and I think itll look sweet
in the babys album.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment when you see something you like...


  1. Congratulations on the news of becoming grandparents for the first time, such an exciting time. Me and my hubby are trying for our first baby, and to keep me occupied my mum bought me a baby scrap book so I could start it up, as she knows I wont have time when baby comes, and your pages are such an inspiration to me. So thanks for sharing the layouts and I look forward to seeing your future layouts
    Love and Hugs
