Photo Album Layout
My friend recently had a baby and I wanted to make something from the heart that she could either hang in the nursery or incorporate into the baby’s photo album. These 12×12 sheets can be framed or can be inserted into a photo album and are completely personalized. Her theme is grey and yellow and then I added in some pink for a feminine touch. Turned out great and hopefully she will be happy with the results.
I cut out all of the shapes, flowers, name and year using my Cricut machine. I cut the year out in vinyl and added it to the fronton the picture frame. It took literally seconds to cut all of the images, the lengthy part is looking through all of the options and visually putting it together in my head before I see the finished product. I chose the variety of papers and colors that I wanted to use and then pieced them together to get an idea of where I was going with the layout.
All of the letters were edged with a black Faber Castel Marker. I used a adhesive tape gun to adhere all of they shapes and letters and attached photo corners onto the page for an instant insert for a 4×6 photo. Typically I would just add this to a scrapbook or make a cute folder to give as a gift but for this particular sheet I put it into a record frame. They fit 12×12 sheets perfectly and can make it possible to set out for decor or display. You can also add dimension or texture to these frames they will fit up to 1 inch of adornment or texture.
