I'm making a just add pictures album for my brother's baby (due in June). I am finding it increasingly difficult to scrapbook without pictures to draw from for colors and style! It's crazy, I have found myself looking at online sketches and to see what others have done, since I don't have the inspiration I typically do-the pictures! I think the hardest part is that I want to make sure it can become an album that not only holds pictures, but also memories for mom and dad. Whereas I tend to do less journaling in my scrapbooking, I'm trying to leave room for journaling to be added as well. This is a Daddy and Me double layout (intended for right after birth). The first picture will be on the left side of the album.
The frames are embossed (although it may be difficult to see in the picture). The bird is from the Stamping Cartridge as is the branch (which is really a flourish)-done in vellum. The font is Broadway, cut using SCAL. I will NOT cut this font again! It has lots of places on letters that are really, really thin and a pain in the hind end to take off the mat and glue without ripping. The s's especially were a nightmare-hence the drawn in ones (I thought it added my own flair).

  1. Hi Brandi! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely ribbon project with us at DYSU this week! Janna

  2. Oh yes. Isn't it fun :( to find the fonts that don't work. I'll try and remember that one. I'm sure it is hard to do without the pictures. Just try and stick with a them and colors for the whole book and it will go together fine with the pictures.

  3. well you're doing a fabulous job!

    hugs :)
