Baby Shower Photo Album Spruce Up

Here's another  crafty gift for the baby shower.  I decided that the mom-to-be needed an album and some photos of the event.  I picked up a smaller album and thought I could spruce it up with some of the leftover papers/embellishments from my gift (more on that in another post).  This is the result

I adhered a version of the invitation onto the inside cover of the album so she would always have a keepsake of the day.

I covered the next two pages with cream cardstock so that attendees could write a quick note or just sign their name to the album, a small record of who was there.

Then, throughout the book I used embellishments and strips of matching patterned paper to create vignettes.  The better to flip through an album and look at.

One individual snapped photos throughout the party.  Those were gifted to the mom to be after the event.

I also couldn't help myself and had to dress up the gift bag.  This plain white gift bag was perfectly embellished with a striped border sticker and some elephants. Too cute!  Fun was had by all.  I'm trying to get the pictures of the gift I made edited.  There are quite a few.  More on that in my next post!


  1. That is such a great way to upcycle a plain photo book. And love the gift bag too :-)


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
