As I posted my baby cards last weekend, I told you that I had been working on a big (for me) project. Well, the secret is out and I can share now. A dear friend of mine is pregnant with twins and I was part of a group that made her matching scrapbooks. Her twins are actually one boy and one girl so the scrapbook use the same layouts (bacically) but with different papers. You may or may not know that I am not much of a scrapbooker. I have used My Digital Studio with some wonderful success but have never made entire traditional scrapbooks. Together with two of my friends, Christine and Simone, we committed to making these books. Let’s face it, the mom of twins isn’t going to have time to scrapbook for a while!!
We started by getting two of the adorable Olive Polka Dot 6″x6″ albums from the Summer Mini. Then, we chose the Petal Party and Happy B-day Simply Scrappin’ Kits as the base for each. It is amazing how stampers with totally different styles can create a unified project just by using the same papers!! The best part is that we had lots of paper and self-adhesives left over so that the mom can add finishing touches once the pictures are in.
To add to the fun, there is a challenge over at Stampin’ Royalty this week that is about “Seeing Doubles” – SR#26. It seemed like the perfect time to post some of these great pages.
To start, I have the two cover pages (created by me):
I really don’t have room for all the pages but I am going to show you a couple of my favorites! Take a look at the fabulous artwork on the “first tooth” pages created by Simone (on the left, each pairing). Her dear husband drew it for her…wonderful!
And the following pages were created by Christine as “Grandparent” pages:
We tried to leave lots of room for journaling and embellishment after the pictures are put in. We were so thrilled with the final result and, more importantly, the mom-to-be seemed to love it! So glad you stopped by and I hope to see you again soon!
Awww, that is just so darn sweet (love those first tooth images!). Mama is going to have her hands full, so this is so thoughtful of you all!
Great take on this weeks Stampin’ Royalty Challenge 🙂
Wow – what great projects. Great job with the doubles challenge here at Stampin’ Royalty.
