SIMPLY SPRING | Daily Doodles Baby Album with Nathalie

Confession time: I have never made an actual baby album for my kids and now that they are much older it seems too daunting of an exercise at this point. I can't be the only one, right? But don't despair, here is my easier option: combine a Daily Doodle insert, some favorite photos, journaling notes and the Simply Spring collection which happens to be perfect for babies!

I first decided on photo placement and then used several die-cuts, stickers and the 6x6 paper pad from the collection to embellish and create layers directly on the page. I love the dotted inserts!

I also created my own embellishments with the new metal dies and stamps from the French Kiss and the So Much Pun collections. For the little postal stamp below, I used both the stamp and die from the French Kiss collection and a small sticker from the Simply Spring Icon sticker sheet.

This collection is so full of adorable elements and the one that sparked my inspiration for this page is this little boy on a swing:

So if you feel bad because you are "behind" in recording baby memories or an old trip (I have a bunch of those too!), I suggest this journal format to you. It doesn't take long to make a page, especially with a variety of die-cuts, papers and stickers from Doodlebug Design.
Happy crafting!
