It's a big week at Ella Publishing! In addition to the announcement of their fab Spring Training series (you can see Angie and Wendy explain it all right here) it's 'baby week' on the blog and the Ella Friends have a series of baby gifts and products. I get to kick it all off with this little mini album for a baby girl:
materials: chipboard album: Maya Road; cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: MME, Basic Grey; letters: American Crafts, Jenni Bowlin; ribbon: Little Yellow Bicycle; stamp, tag: Stampin Up; pearls: Martha Stewart; pin: Tim Holtz; die cuts: Big Shot
I know filling a big 12 x 12 scrapbook can be overwhelming to a non-scrapbooker (especially one that is also a new mom) so I like to make minis for them instead. I kept the concept for this simple: 12 mini layouts, each for one of the first 12 months of the baby's new life. Each layout has lined paper on the left to jot notes or milestones. On the right there's room for a small picture or two. The book starts out with an 'on the day you were born' page to jot down a few notes or vital statistics.
You can see some more of this mini over at the Daily Trumpet and be sure to stop by every day this week for a new project each day. Can't wait to see what the Ella Friends have up their sleeves!
