Doodlebug Design | Special Delivery Baby's First Year Album

We are at that point when there's lots of new babies entering our lives... nieces & nephews, friends' children, my younger cousins are all having babies.  I'm so excited... nothing better than cuddling and loving a new baby... and then giving him/her back before they fuss!!!  It has also kept me busy in the craft room... I love giving something special to the new parents.  I made this first year album for my nephew's new little guy using the Special Delivery Collection.  

I used this file for the cover of the album.  I added a "hidden binding" to hold 12 pages.  That left me enough space to document the baby's arrival through the first birthday.  I then set to decorating pages for each month of the first year.

I love the cut apart sheet with the series of lists.  The It's a Boy section was perfect for my first pages.  And how cute is that little stork??

I created little notes using this file for each month to document baby's favorites, milestones, what's new and outings and activities.  I also added a space to document how the baby is growing... height and weight.  These were all done using the print & cut feature of my Silhouette. Each set of pages has a little flag with the month using the My Type Alphas.  All that was left was the fun part... using the Special Delivery Odds & Ends and Chit Chat pieces to decorate each set of pages.  Take a peek...

The last pages of the book celebrate baby's first birthday!  I added a few Odds & Ends from the Party Time Collection.  I love how the 2 collections coordinate seamlessly!

I can't wait to meet my new great-nephew (we always knew I was a Great-Aunt, this just solidifies it :)) I also can't wait for them to fill this book with lots of adorable photos!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design | Hippity Hoppity Easter Basket

Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on it's way!  I have always loved Easter crafting.  The fun pastel colors, the bunnies, lambs and chicks... and let's face it... the chocolate!  I created this fun little Easter basket, along with a paper version of an egg-hunt egg using the Hippity Hoppity Collection.  Take a peek...

I started with this SVG file from Lori Whitlock for my basket.  I cut it from the purple side of the Hippity Hoppity paper.  I love how the plaid pattern looks with the woven basket!  Inside the basket I added a fun little 3D Easter Egg from Simply Crafty SVGs filled of course with something sweet!

The egg was made using some petite prints and my favorite paper from the collection, the Easter Basket plaid!!

I love how the egg also stands on it's own!

I decorated the outside of the basket with a bunny and flowers from the Hippity Hoppity Odds & Ends.

Hopefully I can resist eating all the chocolate eggs before Easter arrives!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
