I have never used chipboard.
I know, right? How odd. That embarrassment and sore spot on my scrapbooking has been remedied. I put together some pages and two cards using Creative Imagination's Baby Bella line. In my stack of photos left to be scrapped, I had one of my mom and Birdy when she was just tiny...something like 2 weeks old. It fit really well with the paper. I found some great peach lace ribbon at PP that matched the paper and used it to mat the photo, which turned out to be one of my favorite elements from this set:This other layout is from a photo session we had with some of the other babies in the family. I popped out some of the cute animals to give the page a little more dimension:
My other confession is that I love the Fiskars Threading Water punch, and I got another chance to use it on one of the cards: I did wish that this paper came out a little earlier, because it would have made some great birth announcements. I also realized that I am a smidgen more behind in her baby album that I would like...as in, nearly a year with some photos.
How are you all doing with your kids' baby books? Also, when did you stop the baby book? Having never done this baby book thing, I'm curious.
