My goal is to have a Baby's First Year scrapbook ready to go for Baby M before her anticipated arrival which is a little over a month away. I started by making a list of the types of pages/events I'd want to document during her first year. My list got a little out of control at first because honestly, what don't you want to snap a picture of or document in the first year, right?! After some narrowing down, I ended up with the following list:
Birthday/First Pics, Coming Home, Sleeping, Random, Bath Time, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Baptism, Valentines, Easter, Summer, Crawling, Walking, First Birthday
I finally took the leap to make the first pages and I decided to start with Bath Time. I used my Cricut and the Life's a Beach cartridge for all of the cuts (except the water and picture squares). I chose mostly soft/pastel type colors with an off-white background, a shimmery baby blue for the water and picture backgrounds, shimmery pastel yellow for the AHOY & SPLASH headlines, light pink for the whales, fish and AHOY & SPLASH shadows, black for the fish & whale backgrounds, light green speckled cardstock for the seaweed, white for the picture slots, navy blue for the bubbles, and pink & white polka dot and yellow ribbon.
Whew! After all that, here's the finished product:
I'm really happy with how these turned out and excited to take on more of the page designs I have planned.
This week is good timing too because the theme of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #220 is Wet and Wild so I'm entering this there as well for fun! :)
Thank you for visiting! And if you have any other good ideas for pages to add to Baby M's scrapbook that I didn't list above (not that I need any more really, but some alternative/add-on options can't hurt!) feel free to comment and let me know!
Take care and make it a great day!
