5 Months Layouts for Twins' 1st Year Albums

I found a cute layout on Pinterest to try out, so I did a varied version for each girl's album:

Sophia's 1st Professional Pictures

I rarely do a "copy" layout where I use the same sketch twice to create a semi-identical layout, even for the twins' 1st year albums.  If I LOVE a sketch, I may use it in both, but I usually change up quite a bit to make them unique.  This time was a bit different, because of how difficult the color coordinating was with these photos, I used the same papers as in Olivia's and the same sketch too.

I'm pretty happy with how both of these layouts came out.

The original sketch from Let's Scrap is in the previous post.

Olivia's 1st Professional Photos-4 months

I was looking for a special way to showcase the professional photos we had taken of the girls at 4 months old and this sketch from Let's Scrap was just perfect!  I'm using it for Olivia's, but may also do Sophia's the same way.  I haven't decided yet.  Here is the sketch I used:


And this is my take on it.  I really love how this came out!  It was a big struggle to find papers that made these two very different sets of photos work together, but I just adore this!  I decided to make them feel cohesive by pulling the orange from the 2nd dress into the banner and the purple from the tutu into the flower and flags.

New Twin Layouts!

I just realized I haven't posted the layouts I finished for the twins' 1st year albums!  These were done freehand, without a sketch, and I really enjoyed testing out my own creativity!  

So here's catching up!

Lovable You

Here is my latest layout for Sophia's baby album, her 1 month old pictures.  Her sweet brother loved kissing on his babies and I happened to catch one such kiss on camera.  I'm not thrilled that my vellum quote didn't come out of the sticker machine like I expected, but I still love the layout.



This sketch is awesome because so many elements of it are easily adaptable to different types of layouts.  I really loved the flags on this one and had to incorporate that in mine.  My layout is only an 8x8, so I was limited on what elements I could include.  I used the left side of the sketch.
