Baby layout

Hi, this is Kelly Bienvenu from kbiendesigns.  First I'd like to say I am very excited and honored to be a part of such a wonderful group of ladies!  From what I've seen, there are lots of super talented ladies out there!

I was recently asked to make a baby album for a soon to be born little girl.  I was asked to incorporate guitars into the book in a few places.  I have no idea what this was all about, but if guitars and music were that important I would do my best.

Here are two of the pages from the book.  For these two facing pages, I chose to print my paper from Teresa Collins Baby Boutique on my Imagine.  It's a very, very pale pink background which worked perfectly with the colors I had chosen, which were black and white, with a touch of pink.

I then cut the word "Lullaby" from Everyday Pop Up Cards at 3" on white cardstock, using black cardstock for the shadow feature, again at 3".  The guitar is from American Alphabet (one of the pre-loaded carts on the E2) and was also cut out at 3".  I used Tim Holtz tissue tape to border the page and made a flower for the bottom left hand corner.




The facing page also began with Teresa Collins Baby Boutique paper printed on the Imagine.

I wanted a banner, but since I did not have a baby name, I decided to use the storks from the Pretty Pennants cartridge.  These were cut at 1". I added the baby carriage from Everyday Pop Up Cards, cut at 2".  Again I used black and white cardstock, but thought the carriage needed something, so I used black and white ribbon to dress it up a bit.


The alphabet is 7 Gypsies tape which went perfectly with my theme of black and white!

All in all, these pages were very easy to make, and even though I used a lot of different carts, the process was quick!  Thanks for looking!
