Ty's Baby Album Cover

The following pictures are all from a baby album I made for my friend Christy's baby boy, Tylen. The base of the album is a Close to My Heart tag album. I replaced the post in the album with a binder ring so I could have a bit more bulk on my pages. All of the papers are from SEI's Chick-A-Doo collection. I LOVE these papers!

The cover and back are both covered in a fabric paper. It is wonderfully soft, like a micro suede. The Eeyore image and letters are both from the "Pooh Font" Cricut cartrigde. The ribbons on the binder ring are all from the SEI Chick-A-Doo collection as well.


Ty's Baby Album Part 1


Page 1: I used the Close to My Heart set sets Adore Caps and Lowercase to stamp the word "Introducing" with CTMH Heavenly Blue ink. I used my Hero Arts "Tiny Alphabet" to stamp out "Tylen Grant" and the adorable baby is cut with the Cricut Cartridge "New Arrival"


Page 2: The white metal tag is from Making Memories and says "Baby Boy" the ribbon is also from SEI.


Page 3: I used Pop Dots to raise up this adorable onesie on a hanger that I cut using "New Arrival"


Page 4: This is my favorite page! I cut the tub and the words "Bath Time" using the "New Arrival" cartridge. Then I used a product called Skittles (they are little glass flat backed marbles) to make bubbles around the tub.


Page 5: The stamp is used is from a CTMH set called "Today's Date" in Garden Green ink and I circled Ty's birthday with a great pen from Sakura called a Gelly Roll pen.

Ty's Baby Album Part 2


Page 6: I used a stamp that said "Little Miracle" with the Heavenly Blue ink then I traced it with a Stardust pen (super fine silver glitter) for a little extra sparkle. The eyelets are also clear rhinestones with silver around them.


Page 7: I used the "New Arrival" cartridge to cut out the words "Sweet Pea" as well as the baby in the pea pod.


Page 8: The baby blocks letters are also from the New Arrival cartridge. I had to alter them a little so the dark blue would outline the blocks. The ribbon is a sheer white with polka-dots that I just love.


Page 9: The airplane, cloud and banner are both cut with New Arrival and I also elevated them with the pop dots. The quote says "Where there is great love, there are always miracles" and is from a CTMH set called "Love Quotes"


Page 10: Last but not least is a darling moon cut from New Arrival

I hope Christy enjoys her album!
