Hello, Maja Fans, and welcome to the blog today!
Have you already got our latest release, the Home For the Holidays collection? If not, then quickly visit the nearest craft store or order them online, because I tell you – they are BEAUTIFUL! And you know what? You don’t even have to use them for Christmas projects! Have a look at this baby album I made – and I only used small bits of our baby collection 🙂
Because designs are so cleverly planned that one side is always universally patterned, I was able to choose plaids and stripes for a perfect baby boy colour and pattern combo 🙂 I used a chipboard shaped album and decorated it to imitate baby clothes.
I added buttons and a sewn pocket on the front of the album that looks like dungarees:
The first page contains a baby info tag to add the date and measurements etc:
The second card is shaped like a onesie with a collar and is partially visible from under the dungarees card, so I arranged the embellies so that they don’t show through:
Then the rest of the cards are in the shape of a onesie and only the first of them is visible from the front, therefore I could arrange the embellishments more freely, though I still concentrated them mostly around the edges to leave the centre of each page for photos. I also mounted the tags etc. only partially, so that the photos would look more naturally slid under them:
And though it took me ages to cut the papers according to shapes, it was still pure pleasure creating the album 🙂
