Designer Showcase: Newborns and Babies

Welcome to this week's Designer Showcase. Today we are sharing newborn and baby projects.  It's Cathy here to host this weeks showcase for you.

Marlene certainly turned the memory of a colicky baby into a very happy page. The lovely color combination and sweet details really contrast the crying baby and "waaah!" title!!  The punched borders throughout the page really add a lot of dimension and texture.

Cindy created this 2 page spread with some of her favorite photos from the birth of her son.  I love the way she offset the the 3 photos on the far side. It really makes her favorite photo on the left stand out even more. It's really neat how she used the 3 brads on each page, like the 3 people in their growing family.

Nancy created this really sweet page. The large scallop edge to the designer paper wraps around the edges of the page, like the snuggling bunting wrapped around the newborn baby.  I love the big flower pieces mixed with the small butterflies and trim.  Those soft colors remind me of a snuggly baby blanket too!

Vicky created this masterpiece.  What a darling photo, she softly finished the edges of the photo to help it blend into the background.  The flowers and lace and pretty designed paper are almost as precious as the "caress" gesture captured in her photo.

This is a card that I created several years ago.  I made it using plain cardstock, tulle, lace trim and fabric flowers.  I have the template available on my blog. You can grab it here.
