One of my very favorite new releases from CHA in January is the We R 4x4 Instagram Albums. I love the small size of these albums--perfect for a gift, or mini album project. Check out the baby album I created below using the Sheer Metallic Instagram Journaling Cards.
Aren't the vellum metallic journaling cards just beautiful? For more details and a video tutorial with tips and tricks for how to use these journaling cards, visit the We R blog HERE.
DIY Mini Album
If you'd like to take a more DIY approach to creating your baby album (as a gift or for yourself) here's an idea.
During my daughter's first year I took a photo every month in front of the same background to document her rapid growth and change. Each page of this album contains one of those photos plus some brief list-style journaling about what she learned or accomplished, or how she changed that month.
Most of the journaling is typed on tags and tucked away in pockets.
I like to repeat certain elements on each page in my mini albums to create a sense of unity throughout the album. Each page has a decorative edge I made with my 2 Edge Punch, a die cut Journaling Card, Washi Tape, and the same papers and colors.
This type of album is a really fun way to compare differences and track the growth and changes during baby’s first year. I hope this album inspires you–give these tips a try on your next project.
