For Eli’s baby book I added assorted pages from assorted “baby” books that I was given or bought. I made some templates for people to fill in and added photos. I bound it all with three binder rings. It ends with Eli’s first birthday invitation. Since then I’ve made him some great little books with pictures of him (from printstagram and artifact uprising) and themed books (from blurb and handmade). I also compiled a fun book of all of his scenes we made during my mat leave.
This time around for Abigail I have combined pages from a Smash book, my copy of Art Doodle Love by Dawn Sokol and some assorted Project Life cards, to make a new baby book. I colour-copied some of the beginning pages from Eli’s book (about Rob and I, grandparents, family trees) and plan to add some photos (from Print Studio) and notes periodically.
I also created (inspired by ones I have seen on Pinterest, of course) some “wishes for baby” cards. People have been filling them out as they visit our newest little plum (don’t forget to return them!). Click the image of the cards below for your own free printable (and fill one out for us.)
