Oh baby!

My friend Loni Leah came to my house over the weekend with this in hand. (Yes, it's fun to have friends in high places;) A box full of everything needed to organize my mommy thoughts and baby stuff. It's the Kit of the Month baby album by Becky Higgins. Collin got sick of me saying, "look at this... and this... and this" as I was excitedly explaining how the album works, so I'll share some of the details with you! If you don't mind. :) 
 
Here is a layout where I used all products from the kit including a little pocket to hold her hospital bracelet and a foot print.  

Another layout where I cut one of the page protectors from 12x12 to about 9X12 and filled all the little pockets with the pre-cut squares, photos, rubons and other goodies. All memories from her birth day. 

 
I love that it includes photo protectors to include extra photos and pre-cut journaling spots to slide into the sleeves as well. I still need to gather up more of Lady Q's cards. I'm not used to having a happy home for them. There are a couple more 12x12 envelopes where I am excited to fill with items the next few months. So far I've included her cozy, little hat that was put on her head after she was born and other keepsakes. 

Every month has it's own 3X12 journaling spot and transparency where you can journal about milestones, happenings, and any other fun facts about your baby. This kit is seriously jam packed with tons of product, you'll love it! (No, Loni did not pay me to say that! :)

I love the layered effect of everything together in the album. What's my favorite album you ask? :) American Crafts Albums. I love the D-ring albums because not only was I tired of my fingers hurting from working with those screws but I am always moving my pages around. I guess I shouldn't blame that on the post-bound albums but rather my indecisiveness. :)

Heh, I'm a wee bit embarrassed to admit this, but I ordered this kit yesterday. Nope, not pregnant, but it will be nice to have someday when I AM, right? :o)

Oh, and my friends just introduced me to Erin McKeown :D

Very cute! Love what you did with that kit :) I just had my second little one, one month ago... wish the kit was shipping now!

That is SO SO cool! What a great kit. I'm going to have to get the AC D-rings next. I totally don't scrap in order and also appreciate the ease of moving stuff around! :)

Your creations are gorgeous like always :)

Sara Ancich said...

Thanks for letting us into your albums...always inspiring and a little depressing for those of us that are so far behind! How big is that "S" on your chest anyway?
You go girl!

I am in love with this kit!!! My little boy is 19 months, and my daughter is 4 1/2, so most of their baby albums are finished, but I think I am going to have to go back through and add more pages with this adorable stuff.

Aartee said...

this is too cute! I loved it when I saw it but no babies here anytime soon! The pages you did for Quincey are gorgeous though!

Amy said...

Ohhh! I love it! Adorable!

Hey, are you taking that photog class you said you were signing up for a while ago?

Ashley said...

EmmaJ said...

I love this! I have to run next door and tell my neighbor about it because she is very overwhelmed by the whole baby album thing, but I think she'll love this!

Zoo2 said...

I'm always inspired by your pages (& I have two boys!) and look forward to checking out your blog. It always happy and colorful here. :)

Rena said...

Bee said...

I'm a little jealous about you getting your hands ono that kit. You did an amazing job already with it though & I am looking forward to it coming out next week. I think it is going to go fast though so I'm hoping I can get my hands on 3 of them. Not sure if I will remember to get online & order them though since I'll be nursing my 6 year old back to health after her tonsilectomy and adenoidectomy. Plus I have to play homeschooling on top of it all since she'll be out of school for the week. Sheesh, they do a TON of work in the 1st grade. I guess its back to school for me too. :D
