Fiddly.

Well, if you are a fellow fiddly scrapper, check out this post on:Continue reading

Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year

Scrapbooking your baby’s first year is one of those activities that get a lot of women into scrapbooking. Here’s a really nice article from Parents.com

Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year

 

Highlights Album

The designer: Jennifer McLaughlin of Whittier, California created a first-year “highlights” album for her daughter Ainsley.

The concept: Design an album that covers highlights in these areas: growth chart (personal changes or milestones), places you go, people you love, and things you do. This album requires only four photographs each month, as well as four journaling blocks.

Pre-baby checklist

  • Choose an album. Jennifer used a 12 x 12-inch post-bound album for her project (Note: When you use a consistent color and design scheme, it’s fun to use an album that coordinates with the overall feel.)
  • Create a title page and dedication page.
  • Choose a design scheme. Jennifer used Ainsley’s quilt as a starting place for her page design. Note how the color blocking on each page is drawn from the colors and patterns on Ainsley’s quilt.
  • Preassemble monthly album pages, designating an area for the photos and journaling.
  • Set up a journaling template in your word-processing program. Since Jennifer knew her journaling squares would be the same size each month, she set up a text box and saved it. She also saved monthly headings and simply typed new information once a month when she updated Ainsley’s pages.
