Baby Album Finally Finished

Threaded View
I finally finished the baby album for my DD - in time for the baby shower. I  
didn't want to overwhelm anyone, but I did go ahead and post all the pages  
(24) in my webshots account in the Baby Album. I also included a photo of  
the diaper cake I made for the shower.
DD wanted an album which would also double for the traditional baby book. I  
scraplifted lots of ideas from the other members of the group - Karen in  
particular. I was so glad she posted her baby albums.
This album really gave me a boost. I'm over half way to my 2006 goal to  
average one LO a week. 22 of the 24 pages were made in 2006.

Sandy, you did beautiful work on the Baby Album.  Your DD will love it.   I  
always think it must be so difficult to make an album without the pictures.  
I would never be able to do that!  The cake is too cute!  Love the teddy :)  
Have a wonderful stork party and let us know what she says :)  TFS

PS:   Congrats on being halfway to achieving your goal for 2006!

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
Thanks, Judy. Baby shower went well. DD was thrilled with the album. It was  
a hit at the shower. I actually found it quicker to do the pages without  
photo's. I know that sounds strange. I just thought of what kind of photo's  
I would like to see on the page and went from there.
Last night at the hospital she asked me about hidden photo's. She said they  
had some she wanted in the book, but didn't want just anyone to see. I told  
her "I can do that."  I just love a challenge.

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
Very nice...especially the layouts with the "wine" colored  
cardstock...beautiful.  I love the diaper cake...what a cool centerpiece.

Thanks. When I asw the motherhood line from Karen Foster aat the LSS I knew  
I had to use it. The LSS borrowed the first two pregnancy LO's when I  
finished them in the store for display.

The album's GORGEOUS! And those ideas you got from me, I got from
ladies on another scrapbooking group and here... the more who use them
the merrier! That baby quote was on a sticker sheet I got at the
Dollar Tree - I thought it was beautiful too...  

With the page you have to change the name - how about using the middle
three holes for her name and putting a large decorative brad on either
side?

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
Thanks. That's a great idea. I'm going to start looking for some. I really  
didn't want any more paper on the page, but if I could find some baby type  
brads or even hearts I think it would work.
I really love that saying. My older DD got a copy from me for GD's album she  
is working on, and two of DD's friends who are also pregnant asked for a  
copy at the shower. Isn't it wonderful how we all share and pass on the  
ideas?

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
You're album is really great Sandy.  You did a wonderful job.  I really like  
the idea of making a scrapbook for the baby album.  You're daughter will  
treasure it always.  I have never seen a diaper cake.  When I read it I  
thought it was actually a cake that looked like a diaper.  Then when I  
looked at the picture I have to admit.  I'm silly.  I kept looking at it  
thinking.  That doesn't look like a diaper.  Duh.  It's made out of diapers.  
What a neat idea.  I wish I knew someone having a baby to use that idea on.  
It is soooo cute.  You are very creative.  Thanks so much for sharing.

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
I actually saw my first one on the two peas website. I had problems getting  
started wrapping the diapers before I came up with the idea of using a roll  
of toilet paper for the center of the two biggest layers and tying a string  
around it. I just kept wrapping the stirng over the diapers as I added them  
to the circle. The big ribbon covers the string. I had done one of these  
years ago for a baby gift for a friend, but back then we used baby blankets,  
receiving blankets, sleepers, etc. to make the cakes.

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
It's precious Sandy!  I love the colors in the maternity pages.  You really  
outdid yourself.  It really makes me want to go back and redo my kiddos baby  
pics, but it's not going to happen.  LOL  Tomorrow is the duedate!  I'll be  
sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear when the little one is born.

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
Wow Sandy, what a beautiful album, your DD must have been stunned - did she  
know about it or what is a surprise?  Definately wish I had had something as  
precious when my kids where little - love the layouts you have used and the  
wonderful colour schemes.  TFS and Well Done!

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
Thanks Andrea. DD had actually asked me to make the album. She didn't want  
just a traditional baby book, but wanted to incorporate the album and book  
together. When I saw the one Karen had done I scraplifted the idea and  
started to work.
Now I wish I had done this for my own children. I did save all of the  
computer work I had done for the album as I knew when I did this one I was  
going to have to do one of each of the grandchildren from now on.
She loved the album when she saw it. When I was at the hospital last night  
she had it with her. She said the nurses at the hospital all looked at it  
and were asking where she got it. They said they couldn't believe someone  
made it. (Really made me feel good)

Re: Baby Album Finally Finished
Thanks Marilyn. I wasn't sure about doing an album without pictures either.  
But, once I got started I found it was really easy.
DD and Pat actually said that by looking at the album pages first they were  
able to think ahead about some of the first photo's they wanted to capture.
