Life Documented with Hello Baby

Life Documented with Hello Baby

Hi everyone! Allison here with a Life Documented layout using the new Hello Baby collection, based on a new sketch that mixes both traditional scrapbooking with the SN@P! Pocket Pages.

You can download the full sketch with measurements and placements here.

The left side of the sketch is a traditional style of scrapbook layout while the right page uses combination of cards, photos, and elements with the SN@P! Pocket Page, Design 9.

Here is my layout based on the new Life Documented sketch -

I'll admit I might have gotten a little teary eyed while making this layout. The little guy in the photos will turn 9-years-old in just a few weeks. Where did the last nine years go? Everyone tells you that they really do grow up fast but I just don't think anything can prepare you for just how fast it really goes. It feels like just yesterday that he was this little.

I didn't start scrapbooking until he was about a year old so I have a ton of his baby pictures that I really want to get on pages and in some albums. I love that with the super cute designs and cards in the Hello Baby collection and the SN@P! Pocket Pages I can get that done quickly.

On the left page I kind of built the design around the "love you to the moon" banner on the patterned paper. I love that saying and thought it would make a great title for the page.

I added a few details to the banner, moon, cloud, and stars already on the paper. I used the alphabet stickers to create my own little banner with Drew's full name and then added a few sticker and chipboard hearts and stars.

At the top of the photos I added a few stickers and chipboard pieces.

On the right page I used the SN@P! Pocket Page, Design 9. I love the 12"x4" pocket along the top! I used one of the 4x12 elements for that pocket and then added some smaller detail photos on it.

I created a cluster of small photos of Drew's feet, ears, and nose accented with some stickers and chipboard pieces.

I love finding ways to incorporate stitching into the designs on the cards and elements. I added stitching for the string on the banner and then added some enamel dots to the center of the flowers.

Since these photos had a plain, dark background I had some room for adding a few details to the empty spaces. I love the little cut out banners and thought that one of those would stand out really well on the black in that photo. I also added a heart die cut and a chipboard star.

On the 3x4 card I added a smaller photo with a little Polaroid-style frame to it. I love adding small detail photos to the 3x4 cards!

I'm using the 12x12 SN@P! faux leather album in black for all of my Life Documented layouts. I love the beautiful construction and details! I also used the 12x12 SN@P! Pocket Pages, Design 9 from the Variety Pack.

I enjoy using several different styles of Pocket Pages and since the Variety Pack has so many great options and designs, I have a lot to choose from.

I hope you enjoy using the new Life Documented sketch!
