Baby's First Year Photo Album
My sister asked me to make a Baby's First Year album for some friends of hers. Since I don't know them, or have any idea what their take on scrapbooking, photo-taking, etc. are, I had to come up with something a little easier than my standard baby album (for me & them). So I decided to come up with another easily replicable album to use again and again...
i started with a 2-up Pioneer navy leather photo album. Then I created digital 4" x 6" files for a title page, month-by-month growth chart cards, journaling cards & circle labels to include throughout the album. I printed the digital files onto white cardstock, trimmed them to size and then embellished with patterned paper and ink. Finally, I added cardstock tabs to label each section, complete with stickers and ribbon around the spine of the album.
(the colors for the number of months alternates between red, blue, orange and green)
Each month includes a blank journaling card, that can be filled in, moved to another section (like the holiday section at the back, or not-used-at-all!
I also included in a little zip-lock baggie, circle labels (with adhesive tabs on back) that can be added to the margins to label photos throughout the album.
Easy to make, easy for parents or grandparents to add information and photos, and I can use the digital files over and over again for gifts! This set is geared more towards boys, but with a few color changes, it could easily be used for a girl or neutral album too.
