Baby Holden's mini album and more

This is one of the gifts I made for Sarah's baby shower. I did it last Sunday afternoon, but am just now posting it.

It's an 8x8 album that all she will need to do is add photos. She can use these UBER SIMPLE pages as cover pages for each month and put more pages behind each or keep the album small and simple and call it complete after she adds the photos and journaling. She doesn't scrapbook, so I wanted to make her something that wouldn't take any time. She can slide a 4x6 photo into each slot and voila...it's done! Biggrin I hope she likes it, because I'm afraid it's toooo simple. But I've got plenty of time to embellish the pages more. What do you think?

One month

Two months

and I put a pic of Kayson on the page to show you what they will look like finished....I am going to suggest that she uses all black and white photos...then they will coordinate and the white frames will make them pop. (Obviously the photo is not attached...lol)

three months

Four months

Five Months

Six Months

Seven Months

Eight months

Nine months

Ten months

Eleven Months

Twelve months

This is what they all look like together:

Some simple cards using the epoxy I think it was Tia that talked about it:

I made it a big photo, so you can see the 3-D look of the epoxy glue.
it gave a fun look to the cutouts! I look forward to using this stuff more!

Mother's Day layout...unfortunately this is the only photo of Cohen and I taken on Mother's Day and it's horrible, but I wanted to make a first mother's day layout for Cohen's album. UGH. Because the photo was bad I think I was just uninspired, so I don't like the layout. oh well...moving on.....

and the hidden journaling:

Sorry I've been scarce!! Life is absolutely CRAZY and it's hard to find time for the computer or scrapbooking lately. :/ I lurk every single day though! Biggrin

Charys, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that album for Sarah! How awesome! I think it's perfect as is, and wouldn't change a single thing!!!

I love your cards and I love your LO too. I know it's hard to scrap pics you don't like, but you did it well girl. TFS

Very sweet Charys. I'm with Carrie, I think its perfect as is. Not much to distract from the pics is not always a bad thing. I agree on the B&W too. She will love it!

I think that's a great picture of you and Cohen! I wish I was half as beautiful as you are Charys!

Yep, that album is perfect as simple as it is. I sometimes think i make things too fussy and wish i could simplify a bit more. Less is more sometimes!! Plus she can always add to it if she fancies.

The layout is cute too. I think you look fab in your photo!!
