Remember this sweet little baby? Well, his baby shower was just a few weeks ago and it gave me the excuse to make more cute baby stuff! It all started with a trip to the craft store, where I found clearance baby boy stuff! How lucky am I? I went home and got right to work on this little project:
This little scrapbook started out as a blank chipboard book from Maya Road. I took the pages apart, covered each one in adorable coordinating patterned paper, then bound it with my Bind-it-All (still lovin' it!). I embellished the front cover with more chipboard pieces covered in patterned paper and added a rub on. I used my computer to print out Julian's name then cut it out with one of my tag dies. A little ribbon, a couple of buttons, and it's done! I just love the way it turned out!
While I was shopping for scrapbook supplies, I bought extra to give to my sister-in-law. She, like me, has dabbled in scrapbooking. I knew that with four kids, she wasn't going to have a lot of time to scrapbook. So, I put this basket together to make things easy:
Inside is the scrapbook I made, along with coordinating embellishments such as stickers, rub ons, patterned paper mats, ribbons, cardstock, and another scrapbook for her to use. It was plain when I bought it, so I added more rub ons and the most adorable embellishment - baby Julian himself!
Hope you are all having a great weekend. We are leaving the house soon to do something I haven't done in years and years. It involves us getting dressed up and taking a present. Any ideas what I'm going to do today???
