Baby Bump!

Are you prepared for a dose of adorable?  Sonia Doneghue here from Ms. Ruin's Playthings with my first project for 2014.  Baby photos are so much fun to work with and our family was recently blessed with a baby girl...just in time to play with the new Bo Bunny line, Baby Bump!  Keep in mind that you can find all of the products used in this project at The Crafty Scrapper and if you have any questions, leave me a comment or call up the store at 972-923-3151 and a friendly crafty person will assist you.

A little bit about the cover --there's a lot of Maya Road going on here, I can't help myself to their embellishments and chipboard albums!  But what I really want to point out is the doily paper with the banner and black bird.  All of those elements are actually one single piece of scrapbook paper.  I simply cut a slit behind the bird and banner so that I could slide the picture between the banners/bird and the doily.  This gives the effect of multiple layers.  You will see that I make good use of a lot of the paper in my project.


The fun thing about these chipboard albums is that you have the freedom to add cards, pockets, etc., that will be held in place by the rings.  I didn't add anything to this book, however, I did take one of the pieces of chipboard and cut it in half.  I then put pictures on both sides and was able to add a little flair to the flow of the book.  In the photo above you see the picture of my napping nephew and niece with embellishments below.  

But when you turn that one piece of chipboard over, you have another photo of the two that continues the the theme of brotherly/sisterly love.  A little special touch if I do say so myself.

I mentioned earlier that I make good use of my paper.  Here is a perfect and adorable example of that.  This frame, as well as all other paper embellishments, are part of the Bo Bunny Baby Bump line available now at The Crafty Scrapper.  I simply cut out the center  of the frame and adhered a photo behind it.  Then I added twine and hardware to make it appear as if it was hanging from a wall.  I think the Prima flowers escalated the character that this page was already emanating.  Don't you?

I would like to show off the rest of the book because as I mentioned, it's filled with cuteness!  All of these pictures were taken a week after Ms. Abrie Lynn was born.  Again, please let me know if you have any questions about the embellishments, papers, or techniques and don't forget that you can click on the images to view full size photos.




I hope you enjoyed my first project for 2014.  Again, if you have any questions about the project, leave a comment.  You can also pin this project to your boards by visiting my Pinterest page.  

Until next time...peace, love, and sweet babies!
