Baby Photo Album by Jennifer Snyder

Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here with you sharing a baby photo album.
  I created this for a special friend who is having her first child.  Since 
2Crafty has so many wonderful baby chipboard pieces, I thought an adorned
 photo album would be an ideal gift for new parents. 

With all those photos excited new parents take, they will most certainly need
 a brag book to pass around at every opportunity.  

The hardest part for me was choosing which chipboard pieces I would use. 

So first, let me tell you which 2Crafty chipboard pieces  made it onto this little baby project:

2Crafty products used: 
 "Funky Frames" 
"Precious - Loopy Font"
"I Just (Heart) This Kid"
"Carousel Horse" 

I kept my chipboard pieces very simple in terms of surface treatments. 
 On the close up below, I selected the 
"Funky Frames" (fr0021) and the word "Precious - Loopy Font".

I decided to paint them both yellow and accent with light pink ink of the edges.

The photo below shows my focal point as the chipboard piece
 "I Just (Heart) This Kid".  
For consistency, I also painted and inked the edges for accent. 
 As a final touch, I did outline the words and heart with a glitter gel pen.

The photo doesn't really show the delicate sparkle - like angel kisses on the chipboard.  
At least that's what I think.

I have selected the "Carousel Horse",  unit code (m00050)
as the perfect end page of my photo album.
I coated this with embossing enamel with gold flecks mixed in it. 

Here are some close ups of the chipboard pieces.   You can see what a beautiful 
and delicate design the "Carousel Horse" is.   The little sentiments 
 I used were printed on my computer and sized to fit.

Thank you for stopping by today.
