Scrapbook: Baby Boy

Today, I am sharing a scrapbook (memory book), custom made for little Asjad who flew into this world early May.
I usually do 6x6 scrapbooks, but this was 6x8, so that there is plenty of space for documentation.

The Highlights:

Rocking Horse Layout

This was/is by far my favorite page. I have been wanting to use this stamp since forever, and I finally did.
Also added a small chest of drawers here :), which was inspired by a card, I once saw online.

The Birth Certificate

The next interesting piece is the birth certificate which is mounted on a small handmade booklet. The certificate holds all the birth details, and inside, there is lots of space for journalling.



The client had requested sufficient space for writing wishes for the little one. So this is what I designed :)

And here is the entire scrapbook, page by page:

And that is about it,
Happy Crafting!

Oh Baby!

Beautiful cloudy Sunday (minus the heat) to share one of my latest projects. Its a bright colored 6 inch x 6 inch Baby scrapbook done for an awesome client.

I've done Baby themed scrapbooks before but this one was particularly challenging because, firstly, the baby's gender was not known, and secondly it had to be bright. [For me working with bright colors is a challenge always :D] What helped, a lot, was the clients complete faith and trust in me.

The cover, I usually do in the end, but this time it was the first piece worked on. Lots of bright colors there which basically gave a preview of what will follow.

The Special Touches

Toe Tag Milestones

I designed and added in about 10 colorful tags for documenting those very important milestones.

Flipping Photo Mats

These are so cute! you pull on the base tag and the rest of them flip one by one. The photo holders or corners, as they might be called, are based on the events that follow birth. So the adhaan, the aqeeqa and all, are documented here.

The Tooth Chronicles!

There is a slot of every tooth that appeared and ... disappeared :D

and here is the complete scrapbook

The client loved it,
hope you all enjoy it too!

Happy Crafting!
