This is quite a photo heavy post which actually is not something I usually write. I was contemplating just letting the photo’s speak for themselves but I decided I needed to write something to go with it.
You may remember some posts back I wrote a scrapbook supplies haul and in that post I mentioned I had about 40 rolls of washi tape. You will be pleased to know that that number has since doubled. I just can’t help myself, I can’t stop buying it! I think I need to attend some Washi Tape anonymous sessions. As you can see from the photo’s though, I do use it on every page. I use it to decorate the photos, create lift the flap style sections and just adding something extra to the page.
The scrapbook is a work in progress and the pages in the photos are not finished. I need to add her name and date of birth to the first page alongside the photos from the day she was born. I also want to add the time of her birth and her weight to the second page. The pages are not necessarily in chronological order, I’m just putting photos that I think look good together on the pages and adding decoration to that.
I plan on adding some journal style writing to some pages where it fits or where I remember something specific that I want to note down. I want to do a page of ‘family selfies’ to keep the photos of the three of us together. I’m also planning a ‘Christmas outfits’ page as she wore so many cute clothes on the run up to and in the days following Christmas. Some of them she only managed to wear for photos before being sick all over them, which I will add to the page on a little note card.
The last page has an interactive element in the form of a lift the flap with three photo’s layered on top of each other. Underneath the third one is a tiny little space for a secret message, I’m not sure what I will write in that space yet but something will come to me I’m sure.
Did you find this post interesting? Would you like more scrapbook related content? I’m planning on a follow up post of where I got the photo’s from so if you would like to see that then do let me know!
