 Dear friends
 A new baby in house always bring cheer in the whole family. The first baby cry, first word, first step, lullabys – every small incidence of the first year of the baby is a memory parents cherish throughout their lives. So let’s celebrate this best year in a parent’s life by presenting a baby photo multifold card/album for the first year.

Inspired by the thoughtful pattern paper by Papericious, called “Little Stars”, this small album can cover the entire first year milestone of your little one. The “Little Stars” by Papericious has a collection of neatly compiled boy and girl theme papers, stars and planets, die-cut embellishments and neat headers to define the milestones for the first year of your little one. In fact in order to create this album this pattern paper collection is perhaps all that you may require (besides a bit of your creative bone and some craft tools).

Let me explain you how to create this lovely “Baby’s First Year" memoir with the “Little Stars” pattern paper from Papericious

Step 1 : Card Construction
Make a multi fold(4 fold) card using cardstock and distress the edges.
Size is 5.5"x7.5"(one fold size) and later i added one top fold at the last page ...

Step 2 : Title Page/Cover
On the Title page, I have created a background of a pattern paper and used oval die. The baby carriage and also the little baby clothes embellishments are created.
Step 3 : Inside Pages
On the inside pages, I have used different pattern papers from the “Little Stars” stack and embellished it with Papericious die cuts (which is also a part of this stack). The milestone titles (like First Smile, First Step, First Tooth etc.) are also part of the stack.
Step 5 :Back Cover
 Step 5 : Decorating using embellishments
Now you can use some embellishments from your collection (like boat, aeroplane etc.) which would highlight the baby theme and make your creation look personalized and unique.

Step 6 : Finishing with Baby’s Pics
No movie is complete without the HERO. In this keepsake album, your BABY is your HERO. So go ahead and click nice pics of your baby (or search for these in your collection), get them developed in the desired size and paste it at the designated space… And lo… your album is complete. A prized possession and a thing you would cherish while you grow old.
I hope you all like this creation and would love to hear some comments!!!
Have A Nice Day!!!
