More Pages of a Baby Scrapbook

I'm back with a couple more pages from the new baby scrapbook I am making. These 2 pages are dedicated to the period before delivering a little bundle of joy. The first page I've shown is the 'Waiting for You' page where the new mother can add photos of her baby belly. I went a little woody and vintage with the scheme and here's a look at the page.


Here are a few close ups of the page. I embossed each photo panel with a wood grain design since that was the scheme of the page. For the journaling section, I used a piece of rust paper cut in the shape of notebook page. Just love how it turned out. 



The next page is a layout dedicated to the ultrasound scan photo. I chose the green color scheme since that was the paper I was using and I've always loved picket fences on projects. I never got a chance to add it until now so I'm thrilled with this page. 


Here are a few close ups. I distressed the birds a little to give more dimension and added a lovely bow with some green organza ribbon. The border is done with fabric tape. Entering this one into

Belli's Challenge 165 - St Patricks Day/ Green

More pages coming soon, I am feverishly working to finish this one by the weekend so will share when I can. If you would like to know the supplies used for this or any of my projects, please write to me at craftingtillthecrackofdawn@gmail.com. I will be happy to share.

  1. The wood grain embossing looks great Sunehra........somehow resembles the baby bump!!!! I like the idea of using both the debossed n embossed sides of the papers.
