Hi guys! National Scrapbook Day is coming up on May 6, and Tombow (this is an affiliate link, because I love their products, and proudly rep them) sent me this amazing pack of goodies to play with!
I've never done much scrapbooking before, which is odd given how much I love pretty paper, so I decided to make a mini scrapbook of baby Amélie's first month. Here's part one, the cover — stay tuned for my next post showing you how I put the pages together, and bound the whole book together!
First, I started by making the covers, using pretty pink polka-dot paper (try saying that five times fast).
Then I cut a square out of the front cover, and glued in a picture of baby Amélie. Then I played around writing her name a few different ways until I got one I was happy with, and cut it out.
Next I cut out some strips of cute arrow paper with gold foil and made a frame around her photo, and stuck everything down using the Tombow glue (which is acid free and photo safe). I found a cute black and white polka-dot paper that complemented the cover and I used that on the reverse side.
Here's a video of the steps I used to create the cover. Next post I'll show you the inside pages!
Are you planning any projects for National Scrapbook Day? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Here's a list of all the vendors all these fun goodies came from. (Please note, that while I didn't get paid to write this post I did get these delicious goodies for free — lucky me!)
