Project Life Tuesday - Thomas' Baby Book (Part 3)

The Mom CreativeWelcome to Project Life Tuesday!

Are you ready for another installment of Baby Book cuteness??

Yes, he is a year a half old.  Yes, it has taken me this long to make him a baby book.

But, that's why I'm glad Project Life has come to the rescue!  I went a totally different route for this project and I bought the DIGITAL version of the Baby Edition for Him when it was on sale for 25% off when it was first released.  Because I went this route, I have been able to tinker around with it here and there as I have found time.  It's been nice to be able to work on my album without having to bust out my huge storage tote full of Project Life supplies and clutter up the kitchen table with my gear.  All I need is my computer and a planning sheet!

If you're looking for inspiration on what others are doing with their Project Life, you can check out my board on Pinterest and be sure to link up on The Mom Creative!

Did you catch PART ONE and PART TWO of Thomas' baby book?  If not, you can check it out here to see what you missed!

We are picking up in the middle of Thomas' second month, which was October of 2011.  



For the 3x4 card below, I just put an Instagram shot on top of a journal card and added a little caption at the bottom.

 I love mixing the color photos with some black & whites.


The photo below makes the Star Wars nerd in me very, very happy.

Fast forward about 16 months, and he would be doing this:

 
May the force be with you.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love the pops of teal in this kit?  I'm big on teal lately.






The English dork in me enjoys that last filler card very much.

It's always fun to see how colorful the layouts end up being after the photos are put in the pockets.  The kit creates a foundation to work from, but they are still neutral enough to go with anything you combine with the cards.



At the end of every month's section, I include the "Highlights and Milestones" card as well as a photo of Thomas next to his teddy bear so I can track his growth.



Raise your hand if you get the movie reference on Thomas' shirt in the photo above!


Aren't baby yawns the cutest??

Into his fourth month now.  I love that I can include so many photographs using this system!  I never would have been able to have this many pictures if I had stuck to traditional scrapbooking for Thomas' baby book.  This is going to be a THICK album, folks.



Love those two photos so much.
 

There is no rule that says the journaling cards can only be for writing.  I put the photo of the boys playing with their race track right on the card and it worked out well!


That's a wrap for this installment!  We've made it through Thomas' fourth month so there is still a lot of book left for me to share with you.  I hope you'll join me again next week!

  1. This is absolutely adorable. It makes me want to make one for my kids. I have the traditional baby books but not a lot of photos integrated (of course my oldests' is almost complete). Maybe one of these days, I'll do a book like this for my other two. Thanks for the inspiration!
