I really love working on this album. Really, really love it. Not only is it forcing me to document my memories on a regular basis, but it’s also pushing me to use up my stash and to experiment creatively with what I have on hand. Yeah for babies!
On the righthand page, I used a Fresh Cut designer insert as my background and included a faux photobooth strip of my 12 week ultrasound (which somehow was ten weeks ago…?!). I also incorporated a few sheets of patterned paper, letter stickers, and one of my favorite sentiments from the new “Moments to Remember” Capture stamp set.
On the lefthand page, I used another Fresh Cut designer insert (cut down to be the same size as the previous page) to house my story about having a girl. Since I had already written out my thoughts in this blog post, I simply copy / pasted the text into an Illustrator document and printed it out on white cardstock. No point in doing the same work twice!
For the righthand page, I wanted my message to be bold and clear, but I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to do it. So when I saw this Instagram photo from my good friend Sarah, I remembered the gold foil sticker paper that I had purchased for my wedding ring box and knew instantly it would be the perfect material for my title!
Using my trust Cameo die cutting machine, I created this title (along with a few others) in a matter of minutes. I wish you could see how finite the words “we’re having a” are; they’re so tiny and incredibly precise! That machine never ceases to amaze me.
