New Baby Boy Album and Matching Card

Last weekend I attended a really cute baby shower. The parents-to-be have a jungle theme for the nursery so I decided to run with that theme for a gift, too. This baby album was on their registry and naturally as a scrapbooker I knew I would have to buy this gift for the couple! It came with two blank panels on the front and as soon as I saw it I had a million ideas run through my head on how to personalize it.

I kept the photo panel as is (they can replace the stock photo once their little one arrives) and decorated the panel on the right. It only took me a few minutes to create the little “scene” with the giraffe – and the result is a much more personalized album for the new family!

I finished off the gift with this matching card — also super-easy to make thanks to adorable K&Company stickers.

It’s not too often I get the chance to make baby crafts, so this was a fun change of pace!

Album: Studio Calico blue stripe patterned paper and orange circle from American Crafts patterned paper; Karen Foster Design giraffe sticker; cloud die-cut and blue button from SEI; October Afternoon alphabet sticker.
Card: K&Company baby boy stickers; blue cardstock from Envelopper Inc; Sizzix for Stampin’ Up! label die-cut; American Crafts orange dot patterned paper border strip.
