I'm up today over on the Clear Scraps blog, and am very excited to show you here what I made. I am so tickled to show you this new album today.
When I laid eyes on it so many different ideas sprung to mind. A Baby's 1st Album, Happy birthday, Christening, Easter, Christmas Dress, but I finally decided upon Samantha's First Birthday as the theme to this sweet Clear Scraps Girls Bib Dress Album.
On the cover and throughout the album I also used the new clear baby accent embellishments, as well as cuts from my Cameo Silhouette.
I find when creating a mini album, it's the perfect time to use up new purchases as well as stuff you have had in your scrappy stash for awhile. :)
Grandma couldn't wait until Samantha's first birthday to get her ears pierced.
A fun tip: You can create a pocket out of pretty much anything. Here, I only glued three sides of the cake photo down, and used another 6x4 photo as the insert by adding some ribbon and a border to the photo.
The cake. It's the most looked forward to of all First Birthday parties, and such a sad photo for the album... I needed quite a bit of space to tell the story, so I cut out a present shape using my Silhouette Cameo that conveniently turned into a journaling card.
I promise, she was just fine minutes after that photo was taken. :)
I had such a wonderful time looking back 6 years to my daughter's first birthday and putting this album together. How sweet would it be to have a album like this for each special childhood milestone?
I hope you enjoyed seeing the new Girls Bib Dress Album with me today!
