Baby Gift Album
The image here is from Phindy's Place. I colored him with Copics. The lettering is Sticko and the rocking horse ribbon was in the clearance bin at Michael's!
These pages are fun to make - simple, but you still have to think. The page has to be complete enough to look good without the picture - great when the photo is added. I've used some sketches I found on line and I made up a few of my own. You want the focus on the baby so embellies need to be at a minimum. Digi stamps worked well for me for inspiration and temporary focus. They are meant to complement the photos.
Do you need a baby shower gift? I purchased the album on clearance at JoAnn's for less than $4. An extra set of refill pages was about $2. The digis were already in my computer (I have over 500 images) - both purchased and freebies. The paper is from my stash. By using an 8 x 8 it allowed me to use more of my leftovers. The smaller pieces were purrfect to mat a photo or digi image. As the commercial says: The personal touch? - priceless.
