Baby's First Birthday Pages

In January our darling little granddaughter turned a year old. This past year watching her grow and hit each milestone has brought such tremendous joy into our lives! Grandbabies really are the BEST!

I've been working on an 8x6 Project Life style album to keep track of her first year. Each month I would set up at least one photo shoot to capture her monthly photo and then I would add them to her album. My goal was to have it finished and ready to give her in January, so I spent a large chunk of my stamping time this past month finishing her album. Here are the last few pages.

No party is complete without balloons and the super cute Party Pandas! I used the little confetti stamp to add interest to the background of my page, stamping it in both Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose (retired).

I used papers from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy throughout the album and Regal Rose is a good match to those, so I also used some prints from the retired SU! Brights Pattern Stack from many years ago...I had about 1/2 sheet of each pattern in the Regal Rose so I used it on the balloon and also on the 12 month circle. I used the Labeler Alphabet a lot throughout this album, it's perfect for little titles. Speaking of titles, the "birthday girl" title is a stamp from the retired Hello stamp set. I keep anything I know that I can use in my scrapbooks.

Here's how the page looks in the album. To the left are a couple pocket pages, one is for journaling...I left that for Maddy's Mom to write and the other shows a photo of her beginning to walk. Now just a short month later she's everywhere! I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out various patterns of paper. 

The last page of her album shows her enjoying her birthday cake in a hot pink tutu. I used some retired SU! products to create this page...including Pretty In Pink cardstock and the Banner Blast and Party Pants stamp sets. Those were both free Sale-A-Bration sets from a few years ago. You can still get current Sale-A-Bration products right now...including the fun Party Panda set!

If you would like to see more pages from this album check back in the next couple weeks...I plan to share more. I also did a post a while back sharing many of the pages before the photos were added. You can see that here
