sweet claire’s book

Blessings upon blessings – that’s what I think when I think about yet another healthy baby born in our extended family. I now have 3 nephews and 1 niece on my side of the family and 3 nieces and 1 nephew on Ed’s side of the family! It’s just the coolest. Once again, I set to work on a baby album for the new baby. The idea is that the book is small and ready to have pictures added as the first year of baby’s life goes by. I absolutely love making them and seeing my SIL’s and nieces and nephews look at them and enjoy the baby pictures later on. I finished Claire’s book quite quickly because, thanks to Pinterest, I had a plan! Once the initial layout was created, it came together wonderfully. I was so happy with how it turned out – I sure hope Claire and her family likes it, too!


found the album on clearance at Michaels’ – so sweet!



used my computer to create cards and tags for the book…



a special place to record the story of her birth day…which probably needs a few more lines, considering what an exciting birth day she had!



places in the book to feature her big brother…



and here’s the main plan…the feature around which the book was designed…tags to record month-by-month stats…



each month has a double-page spread, each different, but tied together by the stats cards and the color palette


Another baby project happily & lovingly completed!
