Sugar & Spice And All Things Nice.

Hi again :) I am in the process of making a baby album for one of my friends. She welcomed a little girl in April (yes, it's taking me a while). I wanted to make something that wasn't too complicated, where all my friend would have to do is choose her photos, cut them to size and place them in - I could even do that for her once the photos are chosen.

With this in mind, the design is quite basic. I found a great paper pad by the Sugar & Spice Studio called "Baby Girl". It's a 60 page paper pack with 3 sheets each of 20 different designs - perfect for 2 page layouts and embellishing. The same pretty pastels are used throughout the entire pack so although the designs are different, there is a common colour scheme binding them together.

Here's a sneak peek...

This little garden of flowers was created using felt, tapestry yarn (knotted for a bit of detail), and individual flowers cut from lace.

What a cute little elephant. I gave him some rhinestone eyes so he could see better :) I also added some lace along with buttons. I threaded tapestry yarn through the button holes and unravelled the yarn a little for some texture.

Hopefully I'll have the album finished in the next couple of weeks. At the moment I am grabbing short pieces of time here and there to do what I can. Only about 8 pages to go.

Are you making anything crafty at the moment?

Until next time :)


  1. Ab, that is sooooo cute! I am the least crafty person I know and I have to make 23 sets of parrot wings for our dance at school, I'm thinking crepe paper is looking good!
