Baby Blocks Mini Albums - A Year in Review

Hello everyone!

Once I saw this project by Kathy Orta, I knew I had to make it. I must admit that if you are a beginner in scrap booking, you should think twice whether to start to put together "A Year in Review", because it's huge and massive and takes a lot of time and effort (and craft materials too :)).

I've finished my 'Baby Blocks' about 3 months ago, and even took the pictures back then, but somehow didn't get a chance to share the final result with you until today.

The paper collection I used was from Kaisercraft and it's called "Pitter Patter". From the scraps I created my ATC-size Baby Girl Mini Album.

And now to the Baby Blocks.... Here they are:

As Kathy explains in her video, each of the cubes is 6"X6" and holds 4 mini albums. There are 12 minis all together, each for another month of your child's first year life. 

The cubes sit on a drawer-stand, where you can put different whatnots and memorabilia, or even a bigger mini album.

I didn't create the hinged picture frames to house the albums, it was just a lot of extra work and I didn't think it's a necessary step.

I'm so happy that I made this one and cant wait to start filling it with pictures.

The tutorial is available at Kathy's site and there are some other versions which she showcased on her blog

Thanks for watching.
