Picture My Life ~ Baby Cakes ~ Pocket Scrapbooking ~ Week One


Hello!

Welcome to Week One of my Baby Cakes Picture My Life series.  

This is a project I have been wanting to complete for a long time.
I have always wanted to scrap my own Baby photos into an album.
My Mum did a beautiful job on my Baby book and she had another photo album as well that covered the first two years of my life in photos.  I really wanted to put these two collections together.  The photos in the album needed to be removed and scanned and re-printed as they were getting damaged in the old album.  Luckily I did all the scanning, printing and the planning of this album about three years ago.  All that is left to do is use the products and finish it off - the best part! So today I am sharing my first Pocket Layout using Close to My Heart's Baby Cakes Picture My Life Scrapbooking program.

You can join me in this Baby Scrapping adventure too! Do you have an album falling apart with baby photos spilling out? Or could you start an album showcasing your children or grandchildren when they were babies? I would LOVE to see some of your Layouts produced with the Baby Cakes Picture My Life Scrapbooking Kit.  If you are playing along please link up your Layout in the comments for me to hop on over and take a look!

It is important to note that you do not need other products separate from the Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program to make this Layout.  The only things I used were basic tools like scissors, adhesive and 3D tape.  I also used a some ribbon from my stash and some Close to my Heart gold sequins.  So don't think Picture My Life Scrapbooking is going to cost a lot of money and you need lots of extra bits and pieces.  It doesn't.  Everything you need is in the kit.  They take the hard work out of shopping for these products.

This is my first completed Layout for the album.  This will be the first page (after the Cover page).



The colours of the photos matched really nicely with the colours of the cards in the kit.  My baby photos really have that seventies "orange/brown" feel to them, so this will tie in well with the colours of the kit.  This was just luck and not planned at all!  




The first page of the album is me as a ten-day old baby with my Mum and Dad.  This is the earliest photo I have of myself. I love seeing photos of Mum and Dad so young! 



I love this "Noteworthy" 4x6 card.  I love the font! I added a little heart-banner I cut from another card and mounted it with 3D tape.



I cut these cute little clouds from a 4x6 card and mounted them onto another 4x6 card with 3D tape.  I added some little gold sequins as well.



I am really excited to be working with this kit.  I think it is so cute.
Stay tuned to see more of my Layouts next week.  I have two years of photos to scrap so I am going to be busy!!!!

Watch my You Tube video below to see all the designs on the cards and the contents of the kit.
