Katie Pages

 I have been filling in my blank layouts with photos. Katie's stack is up first. So, lots of reminiscing about all our good times with the firstborn.

Baby Boy Pages

Finishing off the paper collection by making a few layouts of my adorable little baby boys. I'm a simple layout girl.

2 Boy Albums

Now for the boy lines! I love it all. I just pull out the paper and then find all the coordinating embellishments in my leftover stash from other lines. I love using up old stuff. These albums will stay blank to give as baby shower gifts.
This one is a flip-up, flip-out kind of album, which was fun to do.

And this one is one with interesting little holes cut out it in the pages. It'll depend on if you can position the photos so the little baby face peeks from the next page. :) But I did put some things in the holes from page to page. A nice way to put a bulkier embellishment in this type of craft board book.

And then with the last few papers, I covered a couple of composition notebooks. I made some like this for my girls and we use them as back-and-forth journals. Katie's, I started before she was born. Jane's, I started on her first birthday. And now my "poor" boys, starting them when they are almost five. :) Oh well. That's what they get, being the 3rd and 4th kids. I used magnets to make the strap across the front. One glued to the front and the other glued inside the ribbon strap. Extra fun.

Baby Girl Books & Pages

Do you ever buy a line of a scrapbook paper because (1) You love it, and (2) It's on super clearance? I bought this baby girl line a year or so ago and am really trying to use up what I have! When I bought it, I thought that I would make mini albums to have on hand for baby showers. And that finally happened this week. I also happened to have a whole bunch of blank mini albums that I bought with no specific project in mind, some years and years ago.

They turned out cute! 

I also have a boy collection, but am sort of tired of making blank mini books, so those might wait for another little while. Hopefully my friends have girl babies.

With the leftovers, I put together a few super simple pages for my girls' books.

The Janny Book

For Christmas, I made my aunt a photo of a bunch of pictures of her meeting all of her great-nieces and nephews. I love how it turned out!

 Here's a mini-book tip for you! if you don't have a certain size photo that you need, you can get a variety printed very quickly and easily by ordering a photo collage. Walgreens, Walmart...most photo places do them. No resizing in Photoshop! 

Dad's Calendar

For Christmas I made my dad a new calendar. I used the pages I made at the She Loves Color event in 2016 in Milwaukee with Bella BLVD. Then just added photos! Love it!
