After seeing the baby scrapbook I made for my friend, someone asked me to make one for her brother's new baby girl. So here I am with a fresh project and I've decided to do each page with a fresh perspective. I've already done the cover of the book which on the Itsy Bitsy blog. Here I am displaying the next 2 pages: Introducing the new baby and the Family Tree.
For the Introduction page I went with a yellow pastel scheme. I created the titles, frames and pictures using my cameo. Each piece was cut on white card stock and then I created another piece on gold card stock to form a little border for all the designs. The cameo has an excellent offset feature so all you have to do is choose your shape and thickness of the offset and the rest is done for you. I added some lace for the border, fabric tape for the frame and a bunch of bitty yellow bows to brighten things up. Cute isn't it!
The Family Tree page is a more deeper and grungier hue if you like. The tree has branches for each member of the family up to the baby's great-grandparents and for each person I created an oval flap so that the picture can be added on the top and name inside, or vice versa. A few Itsy Bitsy flowers to touch up the corners and I was done.
Nothing is more tedious for me as a crafter than to do repetitive stuff. I'd rather do nothing at all than to do the same thing more than once. So this scrapbook is really testing me. I am forced to think of new ways to display the same things and so far I'm having a blast!!
More coming soon!
