Baby Album Final Page

The day is finally here. This is the last page of my niece's baby album. I changed things up a bit and used the Sugar Rush collection. It seemed just right to celebrate Baby Lauren's first birthday.

I also used some fundamentals scraps for embellishments and banners. Isn't that little bear just the sweetest? Eek! It even had the bib with "1" on it. I couldn't resist it. And every 1-year-old deserves their very own "smash cake" on the big day. A bit of smoothie twine and gold glitter stickers gives it the perfect amount of texture. This was way cuter in person. It was a dark winter's day when I took these pictures, so I apologize for the lighting.

While I am in no hurry for this sweet baby to turn 1, I can't wait to see this baby album complete. LOL I hope she will know just how much she is loved.

Thank you for sharing in this journey. I spent probably about 6 weeks on this album in my spare time. It was a labor of love.

Happy crafting!

Baby Album Layout 16

We have arrived at the last full layout featured in my niece's baby album. I was inspired by a layout I saw on Pinterest. I changed the title and added the onesie embellishment area. I also added additional pocket plus memory protectors.

So pretty. This paper was a joy to work with.

Baby Album Layout 15

I thought the January Stamp of the Month was perfect for this layout. The title is so true. This baby is truly adored.

So I switched up photo sizes a bit from the original pattern. I bought these photo spots from Kiwi Lane, a place that sells plastic templates in borders, shapes, and photo mats. I love how it takes my creativity to the next level. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Baby Album Layout 14

I love how sweet and simple this next layout turned out to be. 

Even though "BRIGHT" is a flaxen color, I thought it blended nicely with the second generation fern color featured in the pattern paper block. Can you believe we are now at 10 months? Just a few more to go!

Have a great day!

Baby Album Layout 13

This next layout features a pattern from the Hello Lovely WYW kit. It was perfect as is, so I didn't really make any changes to speak of.

I am loving those pocket plus memory protectors. In fact, I just used some with my son's vacation pages when we visited Busch Gardens last winter. Great way to add extra pictures!

Baby Album Layout 12

I used a pattern from the Dreamin' Big WYW kit for this layout. It had just the right size spot available to put that awesome gold puffy title. How perfect!

I love the soft colors of this kit. So trendy right now. If you've been to a baby department (I can't stay away!), you will see these colors featured in baby clothing. Yay!

Happy Crafting!

Baby Album Layout 11

If you own a Make It From Your Heart pattern book, you may have recognized this layout. 

I should have taken a close-up of the title and stars; I used our clear shimmer brush to add sparkle to both. It is quite subtle, but adds just the right touch of sparkle, almost a pearl-like finish.

We are only on Month 7 here, so we still have a ways to go. Thanks for following  along.

Happy Crafting!
