Setting Up Baby’s First Year Scrapbook Album | Flip Through

Hey everyone!

This is a video I have been meaning to make for y’all for a long time! I am SO EXCITED to show you how I have set up my baby girl’s first year album. Obviously since she isn’t even born yet, this is just like the skeleton of how the album is going to work. Hopefully it will give you some easy ideas on how you can set up an album before hand for easy scrapping later on.

I plan on doing mostly Project Life style pages in her first year album, but like always, I plan on sprinkling in some traditional 12x12s. In this video I walk you through my album setup, show you what supplies I am using, and my plans on how I am going to approach working on this album. I tried to streamline and make it as easy as possible on me since I will be a new mom with a lot of new life changes :)

Just Chillin’ Scrapbook Layout

Hey everyone!

Today I just have a quick layout to share with you. I recently started sorting through some photos that I found in a random box so I have been inspired to get some of them scrapped. This photo is of Bella and me way back in 2006. She was still very much a puppy at this time, although she was very large lol.

I am sure I have a copy of this photo on a backup CD or drive somewhere but I didn’t feel like trying to find it and edit out the red eye. Maybe I will just buy a red eye pen at some point because I know I have some older photos with red eye in them also. Anyhoo, here are all the details about how I put this layout together.

All the patterned paper I used for this one is from the Fine and Dandy collection from Echo Park. The yellow patterned paper needed a little something so I inked up the edges with a Stampin’ UP Sponge Dauber and some Pumpkin Pie ink. It just made the yellow stand out a little bit better against the lighter blue background.

The overall design of this layout was inspired by a sketch from Creative Scrappers.

The title was made out of some striped chipboard letters that I got in a Freckled Fawn kit over the past few months. I finally found a good project to use them on. They are really cute, but just not the normal colors I am drawn to using.

I added a few other embellishments to be page including a tag from Elle’s Studio, some Freckled Fawn items, and some Echo Park brads.

And that was it. All in all, this layout came together quite quickly & I really liked the color combo.

In fact, I liked the color combo so much, I made another SP Everyday Color Combo swatch for ya. Feel free to pin, like, use, and share this color combo swatch. Let me know if you use it on a project by giving me a link to your project. I would love to see you using the Everyday Color Combos :)

PLEASE NOTE: The color combo #’s are out of order because I already scheduled two other projects using color combos (#3 and #4) for during my post partum period. I hope to keep the numbers in order in the future lol
