Welcome to this month's Papertrey Ink Traveler's Journal post! This month the Traveler's Journal team has created our journals using a series of sketches! You can see what the other designers have come up with over on the Papertrey Ink Blog. I decided to create a baby mini album to give to a new mother! It is hard enough managing to take care of a baby, let alone get all of their pictures documented! I can't think of any mom that wouldn't love to receive a book ready to put those precious photos in!
I decided to keep things cohesive and simple by using the adorable Make it Market Mini Kit: Wee Folk along with the Wonderful Words: Baby Mini stamp set and coordinating dies. The pre-printed papers made this cover a cinch! I cut the cover using Bitty Big: Pale Peony pattern paper and then added the pre-printed panel onto a base of Sweet Blush cardstock that has been die cut using the fabulous Scallop Stackers: Small die. I just love the sweet little detail that it adds!
I used the Traveler's Journal Passport page blanks as the base to create each of the layouts based on the sketches. The Pierced Feature Frames die made the borders so easy to create!
The Simple Gift Bow die is the perfect accent for this album!
Since the pictures of the baby will be the star of the show, I kept the details simple and sweet. I used the buttons that are included in the Wee Folk kit and some gold embossing to make it special.
The printed papers that are included in the kit also made it very easy to add some quick details. Most of the images are die cut from the pages of pre-printed animals.
I used the Tag Sale #7 die for a lot of the different photo mats. I really like that they have the four slits in the corners which will make it easy to slip the photos into. I also die cut the word baby quite a bit for this journal. I love the font and size, which works great for the titles.
You can see how I used the same photo mats here again with the slits. Simple and easy, but perfect to get the pictures added!
I used some simple die cuts and stamping on this page to mimic the cover of the journal, but added in the stamping on the side for some added interest! I can't wait to give this to a new mom! Thanks for fluttering by!
