Caboodle Baby Album

I'm thrilled that my eldest nephew and his wife are expecting their first baby this fall.  As is my tradition with all my nieces and nephews, I've created a baby album for them.  I don't know the sex of the baby so tried to keepneutral, albeit with a bit of blue, since I have my suspicions!!!

Some of you may recognize this paper package, but it's an oldie and long retired.  Caboodle featured the beautiful colours of sorbet, sweet leaf, and crystal blue with highlights of buttercup and vanilla.   I also used My Stickease from another retired paper pack called Twitterpated which had the cutest images and again were perfect for this baby book.

Cover Page - I love our how to books and I'm thrilled to say they will be back in spiral bound form in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book CTMH.  They are great resources and I often find myself turning to them.  This is from Reflections, Main Frame - Quilt Blocks. 

Baby's Great-Grandmother is a quilter, so I thought it was a great layout to choose.  The stickease and ribbon are highlighted in a cluster on the bottom left corner.


Page 2 & 3 - Yep you guessed it - straight from CTMH Magic - another great how to book.     
This is a close up of the cluster. 

I love the momma bird feeding her baby in this image.  A little fancy cutting, some colouring then popped up with foam tape and you have a great cluster accent. 

Page 4 & 5 - It's a Wide World is from Cherish - Balanced Blocks.

I love the two little bunnies sitting with the mushrooms.  The metal embellishments are sweet leaf retired.    

I have a few more pages to the album to show you over the next week.  I've been trying to use up my stash to get ready for new products (I know I never will but I like to say that I am) available August 1st, 2013 from CTMH. 

I've seen sneak peaks of the products and the Idea Book and you're going to love all that CTMH has to offer for all your crafting fun!!!
