Baby Boy Scrapbook | Ann-Marie Loves

Happy Tuesday! Today I’m back with another installment in my ongoing baby boy album. I kept things pretty simple (as usual) so I could get more done in the short bursts of time that I have to create.

This book is getting bigger and bigger all the time and that thrills me to no end!

Baby Boy Scrapbook | Ann-Marie Loves

Remember when I said that Briar has become my biggest motivator for keeping up with my ongoing scrapbooks? I totally wasn’t kidding!

She pulls the albums off the shelf and drops them in my lap every chance she gets so that we can go through them together. I not so secretly love it :)

So in an effort to keep her happy (ha), I realized it was high time that I added another page to our ongoing baby boy album.

This spread is all about shopping for baby boy gear. What I once thought to be a hopeless endeavor (so dramatic) has quickly become my new favorite challenge! (Related: I may or may not have done some damage on clearance items at Zara for our little guy yesterday…)

Initially I wasn’t going to use this family photo in the spread, but after playing around with it for a bit, I decided that the overall design needed something substantial in the bottom left corner.

For the right page, I used one of my favorite design tricks: adding a title over an image. Also, I ran out of “O” letter stickers for that particular green font, so I had to get creative with the wooden embellishment. I think I actually like it more this way than if I had had the full alphabet!

Baby Boy Scrapbook | Ann-Marie Loves

Last week, after making a ton of client scrapbook pages and remembering the joy that is glue + paper, I realized I should probably make an album for my little guy. I made one when I was pregnant with Briar and it’s easily my favorite scrapbook that I’ve ever created.

There are so many fun photo ops and stories to tell when you’re pregnant that it becomes a piece of cake to whip up an album! So I made a quick run to Michaels, picked up a 6 x 8″ Project Life album and page protectors, and got to work! Here’s what I’ve made so far:

My goal for this album was to keep it pretty simple so that I could get a lot done before I inevitably ran out of energy (a frequent occurrence these days). I gathered a handful of supplies ahead of time so that I wouldn’t waste too much extra time digging for different papers or embellishments once I sat down to create. For this first page, I included my favorite photo from our boy announcement shoot and used the “we’re having a” brush from my latest batch of digital stamps in the shop. The combination of digital stamps and printing photos from home is my favorite method for speeding up and simplifying the scrapbooking process. If you can drag a photo into Photoshop, you can easily use a digital stamp…I promise!

Supplies: Page Protector / Amy Tangerine Patterned Paper / Thickers / Baby on Board Digital Stamps

For the first spread, I used a mix of my favorite patterns and embellishments that I found at the bottom of my stash. I love the photo of the three of us at the Santa Barbara Zoo in January. At that point, John and I were the only two people who knew I was pregnant and it was such a special time. If I could have kept it a secret between the two of us for longer, I totally would have!

Supplies: Page Protector / Amy Tangerine Phrase Paper / Gold Chipboard Ampersand Sticker / BasicGrey Yellow Paper / Mini Alpha Stamps / Kelly Purkey Woodblock Alpha Stamps / Black Ink Pad

This spread took me maybe fifteen minutes from start to finish, once I resized and printed my photos. I’m doing my best not to overthink creative projects these days and so far it’s working out pretty well!

For the page on the left, I used a printable journaling card from Push Print Studio (I’m obsessed with everything she makes!) and added journaling to it using a digital stamp on the left and text on the right.

For the page on the right, I used an acetate sheet from one of the A Beautiful Mess’ Messy Box kits and cut it down to 6 x 8,” punched two holes in the sides, and treated it like a regular scrapbook page.

For the backside of the acetate paper, I mirrored the previous page’s design so that both sides would look seamless. I also used two printables from Push Print Studio because I am obsessed…especially with that striped pattern! You’ll see it a lot throughout this album.

For the page on the right, I used a four pocket page protector and kept things pretty simple. The design in the bottom left pocket was made using a digital brush printed in an empty space that I wanted to fill when printing out a sheet of photos. It kills me to waste photo paper so I ensure that I fill up every sheet!

This spread is a nice hodgepodge of random papers that I love and photos that I had John take of me and Briar on Mother’s Day. I gotta say, taking bump shots is a million times more fun and interesting to look at when you have a cute little toddler to share the frame with!

Here’s another example of where I took a printable and added text to it in Photoshop. As much as I love including my handwriting in my albums, sometimes it’s just easier to format everything in Photoshop and hit print.

Okay, first of all, that floral paper is a random Recollections brand find from Michaels and I want it in wallpaper for every room! I never look at Recollections paper (because I’m amittedly paper snob), but this particular design happened to catch my eye and I ended up bringing several sheets home with me. It’s printed on lightweight paper but I’m willing to overlook that because the pattern is SO GOOD.

Those Kelly Purkey alpha stamps are in heavy rotation around here! I can’t get enough!

I had been hoarding the “WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, HOW” paper from Studio Calico for-e-ver and finally decided that this was the perfect place to use it. I added a little yellow distress ink to the corners of the paper to achieve that gradient effect that I love so much. I also realize that this album is designed for a baby boy, but who says boys can’t enjoy pink and florals?

For this page, I used random photos of my little family and scraps from other pages that I made for the album. I’m trying to document as much of our current “everyday life” as possible because I know it’s going to change drastically in a few months. I can barely remember what my life looked like before Briar came into the picture, so I can only imagine how it will be once there’s two babies in the mix!
