I love scrapbooking and now I subscribe to the more simpler pocket scrapbooking style. It's so much easier and makes me want to convert all of my non-scrapbooking friends that say they don't have time or aren't creative!
This is true of one of my family friends who just had a baby. While she was pregnant, I asked her if she scrapbooked and she said she didn't. So, I patiently waited until the baby was born and created a first year scrapbook as a gift that would be totally doable for this non-scrapbooking new mom!
I first jumped into the pocket style of scrapbooking last year with Simple Stories products. I've made several of the 6x8 albums and have collected extra albums when I've caught them on sale. This pink album was one of them.
I added the baby's name and some circles to the front of the album using cardstock and my Silhouette Cameo. The font is Oh Photo Shoot. This same font I used throughout the album. The baby's nursery theme is Dr Seuss ABCs so I thought this combination played a little into that theme.
I also purchased the Project Life Baby for Her core kit. I still have some scrapbooking to do for my daughters from when they were toddlers (ugh), so I figured a whole kit wouldn't go to waste.
Since I had a crazy month in April filled with many birthday celebrations and Easter celebrations, it took me a while to get to this project. This ended up being a good thing because I could add some of the photos that the new parents shared on social media, which would show how they can utilize the pages. If they don't like how I did it, though, no worries! Just remove them from the pockets! Such a great thing about this format, too.
I included an archival safe pen for journaling and the handmade card above.
Happy crafting all!
