fat quarter gift set, I also put together an ABC book for her to highlight some favorite photos from the first year. The ABC concept works with many themes. It is an especially good one to make for friends who do not scrapbook because photos don't have to be in chronological order and with a little planning photo cropping can be kept to a minimum. I've found that when making gift albums it's best to make things as easy as possible to complete to ensure it actually gets used. This is a simple and straight forward concept, after all we all know our ABCs! It's also fun to come up with pictures to match each letter.
This book was made with an 8X8 sized scrapbook, I found on clearance a few years ago, that came with the standard ten page protectors. It's been waiting in my stash, along with the sheet of round letter stickers from Pebbles Inc., for the next baby girl to be born. Any alphabet sticker set or even stamping would also look great.
You will probably see the pattern between layouts and see how just by moving the picture placement from the top to the bottom or left to right you can come up with several variations to keep thing interesting. I like how there is continuity between pages but still room to put creative touches.
Have you ever made a gift album? I'd love to see your project. Leave me a link in the comments and I'll be sure to come give you some comment love!
