I Do Still Craft!!

I know the blog has been picture heavy lately and you may have been wondering where the scrapping has gone. It's still here I just haven't been able to share :) Today our Product Showcase, Board Book Albums, went live at The Daily Trumpet and I can show you the entire mini album here!

This was so much fun to work with because I didn't need to add too much to showcase these special pictures of Garrett at 8 months. Not only do the pictures capture him at so little but these were the first set of pictures that I was really proud of. I used the black velvet sheet shown in the Annual Costume Shoot and was shooting in film. I think I ended up with two rolls & these pictures showcased were my favorites.

For the cover I used various American Crafts Stickers to repeat the theme of 8 Months.

I picked a coordinating paper line from American Crafts to make the assembly go quickly.

I followed the same formula for each page to make this an afternoon project.

Make sure you go see all the other projects using the same board book album at the Daily Trumpet today. It is so neat to see all the different projects!
