I was recently asked to do a scrapbook for a baby boy. The mother wanted non-traditional colours and plenty of space to record all the details of a baby’s first year. One of my favourite pages in any baby scrapbook is the First Impressions Page – where one can store an impression of the little baby’s hand and foot. That’s what this page is all about.
I decided to use this opportunity to check out the We R Memory Keepers 8 punch. It’s a wonderful punch that allows you to make beautiful borders for your scrapbook pages or even cards and albums. I chose the lace kerchief design 8 punch and that beautiful white feature covering the page is all created form this punch. Love love love the effect! Don’t you!!
For the baby hand and foot print I thought it would be fun to add little baby feet silhouettes and little baby hand silhouettes as an embellishment. Aren’t they adorable! I also liked the little pops of red against the bright yellow and white. A fun and happy colour scheme isn’t it!
As cute as this page is, let me tell you, it’s no easy feat to get a baby’s hand and foot impression. So to make things a little less stressful I created a pocket for the impression card. This way the new mother won’t have to force her little infant to press his hand or foot on to the page directly. Instead the impression can be created on the card and then when dry, slipped into the pocket provided. Wish I had the sense to do this for my kids’ scrapbooks. Ha ha!
That wraps up this post. Thanks for dropping by folks!
