(And, surprise - I have a baby now!)
As soon as I found out I was having a baby girl, I contacted Barb & Joy over at Scrapbook Nerd and pre-ordered most of the Little You (Girl) collection by Crate Paper. The Little You collection is absolutely gorgeous; it's full of soft pinks, blues, woodgrain and adorable ephemera. I knew it would be perfect for documenting the newborn season.
For Lina's baby album, I decided to go with a 12x12 three-ring binder so that I can mix & match traditional, full-size layouts with Project Life-style spreads. Pocket scrapbooking is not my forte, but it's definitely the most convenient option for me at this point since I can work on each little card whenever I have a few minutes to spare. Here's a quick peek at what I've been working on ...
Lina's first day of life; all photos taken at the hospital within hours of her birth.
I'm planning to replace the floral patterned paper with journaling (lots of it!) in that bottom left 4x6 pocket.
Sorry I don't have more to share today, but be sure to watch this space for layouts and more pocket spreads! I'm really hoping to get back into the scrapbooking groove in October, and will be updating the blog as I get things done. xx
