Baby’s first year

Hi peeps

Today I want to share an album I made for my granddaughter who is expecting baby boy Wyatt in early May.  We are so excited.  I was going to wait and surprise her once the baby is here but I couldn’t wait.

I already miss my little book.... isn't that silly?  But I had so much fun making it and each page made me smile, the paper is THAT cute.  It is Echo Park Bundle of Joy Baby Boy and I love it.  The 6 x 6 book was made with white linen paper from Country Craft Creations and the other background papers used are from Stampin Up (pool party, pear pizazz, so saffron) and ribbons are  SU satin.  I used magnets on quite a few pages too.  That's enough chit chat.... enjoy each page .... they are in order.  

This was indeed a labor of love and I am hopelessly hooked on making these albums.  If you have any questions, please feel free to use the comments section.  I'd love to hear what you think of our little photo book.

Thanks for visiting

Christmas Album "North Pole Gazette"

Hello there.... and Merry Christmas from our home to yours

Here is the last of my albums that I made this year.  I'm really addicted to making these.  This is paper I picked up at Michaels and decided it would be perfect in a 6 x 6 format.  This album also has six pages with all the flaps, pockets and pull outs imaginable.  Once again, I should have taken the pictures from a further distance so you could see how each page interacts with the others... I did promise to do better next time, right?  These three albums which have been posted have all be delivered to our daughters and one granddaughter so I can't take any more pictures... we'll just have to deal with what I have.

Here we go..... Are you ready, Bailey?  C'mon, lets get to work...

Hope you're inspired to try an album one of these days.... the step-by-step tutorials for making the book and it's pages can be found on YouTube.

Meanwhile, have a very happy holiday season.  And, as always I thank you for visiting my blog.
