Hello, Baby! (part 3)

Hi All! Welcome to part 3 of the Hello, Baby! album tour. Today we will look at the last three pages of the album, starting with the back of page 3 and front of page 4:

I tried to keep the journalling cards readily accessible so that Mom and Dad could write down Baby's firsts without too much trouble. I did hide a card behind some of the flip flaps, but I don't think it will be too difficult to get to.

Here's a look at the back of page 4 and front of page 5:

One of the things I really like about Georgie is the pink accents. Even though this is a relatively gender neutral paper pack, the pops of pink are perfect for a baby girl album.

Here's a look at the back of page 5 and front of page 6:

I tried to be a little creative with matting the pages, without having to reinvent the wheel each time. For the backs of the pages, I aded a couple of rectangles of pattern paper instead of a full page mat both to add visual interest and to use up scraps.

Here's a look at the back of page 6:

Obviously we're playing with a lot of different patterned papers in this album. Still, I was able to maintain unity in the design by using the same structure for each page and keeping the base pages the same two colors of cardstock throughout the album. I also had a pattern for the Picture My Life cards. The front card is always a "baby's first" or journalling card and the back is always an animal. Keeping the matting styles similar on all the pages also saved me time.

So I hope you enjoyed a look at the baby album. It was a lot of fun to make! (Must admit though, I think I'm done with Georgie for a while....not that I have any left....) ;-)

Anyway, have a wonderfully creative weekend!
