Baby Album Project

Hi ya peeps

I’ve been very quiet over Christmas but I have been very busy creating.  I’m working on a big project, a sweet baby album for a friend and I’m busting to give it to her.  This is my first album and I’m so excited about how it’s coming along.  It seems like it’s taking me forever but I am busy with so many other things at this time of year I’m fitting it in where I can.  I’m also taking my time with it as I want each page to be something truly special. The book will have 13 openings, 1 for each month as well as an opening to share newborn moments.  So…rather than wait for the book to be done and pop all of it up at once, I thought I’d share as I go.  Here is the first opening which is the welcome to the little one page.

Baby Album 1

Stampin Up! Supplies
 A Fitting Occasion (my new favourite set – it’s fabulous), One in a Million, Make a Cake, Bloomin’ Marvelous (woo hoo, Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek), Itty Bitty Banners,
Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Window Sheet
Floral District, Polka Dot Parade, Summer Smooches,
Fabulous Flourishes:
Vintage Trinkets, Sycamore Street Tangerine Tango Button (Sale-a-bration sneak peek number 2), Pearl Basic Jewels, Naturals Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Tangerine Tango Scallop Dots Ribbon, 3.2cm Square Punch, Adorning Accents Embossing Folder,
1” Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Banners Framelits, NEW Stampin Trimmer

Yep…I do have the new paper trimmer – thought you might ask.  And while I’ve got you… I just have to say it… This paper trimmer is, by far, the best I have ever used!!!  I have been through around 8 and am with most of them.   Three are completely useless because of one reason or another, one broke about the third time I used it and I didn’t get the chance to return it.  Another broke the first time I used it and I did return it – Not happy Jan!!  One cuts crooked, one is my old Stampin Up one and it’s had a pretty good work out and the other is my large Dahl rotary paper cutter.  That one is in an entirely different league and I use it mostly for workshop and class prep.  I love it too!

You know when you find a product where you can really tell that someone has sat down and thought about all of the things that annoy them and then design it so those annoying features no long exist?  Bit like the Dyson vacuum cleaner actually.  Well that’s what Stampin Up! has done with this little beauty.  Here a video so you can see for yourself.

Now…back to the book…sorry…got a bit too excited about the trimmer there eh??  Here’s the second page…

Baby Album 2

I’ve made the album basics using envelopes and using an accordian binding made from Polka Dot parade.  I had no idea what I was doing but managed to get it together.  I would have liked the binding on the other side but as I’ve decided that this is my year to not take things soooo seriously, no biggie.

Do you like the tags made using the stamp set A Fitting Occasion?  How cute is the little elephant?

A Fitting Occasion

I started with Floral District DSP to give me an overall colour theme of Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razelberry, Baja Breeze and Rose Red. I’m going for three colour combos in each opening.  The DSP will tie it all together.  I’ll also be using co-ordinating patterns from other packs, including Sale-a-bration and new Seasonal catalogue sneak peeks so be sure to look out for those.  I’m using Early Espresso to break it up – mostly where I’m stamping sentiments as I think it gives a much cleaner look.  And lastly…Whisper White which I’m using for photo space.

Check back tomorrow, I’ll be posting the next set of pages for the first baby month.  One of my favourite colour schemes…Rich Razelberry, Baja Breeze and Rose Red.

Happy crafting!
