Digital Scrapbooking

I used some older Digital Scrapbook Kits to play with the photos of the new baby. I thought I would create a simple scrapbook for Kellie starting with some photos of Uriah's first day. The kits I used are: Jen Martakis-"April 2010" and Michelle Underwood- "That Was Yesterday". Unfortunately I got these digi kits so long ago I could no longer find them at Two Peas. They have over 5000 digi kits so I'm sure you can find one to fit your theme. Don't worry if you don't have Photoshop or some other expensive photo editing software...I did these in Microsoft Publisher 2003...Word or PowerPoint will also work.

The collection of scrap-booked photos. 

 When I set a transparent background for the photo, it allowed the pattern from the digi paper to show through to the white blanket. Ties it all together.

Andy was so excited and so calm at the time...I was very proud of him.

I made a photo pocket using the same digi elements to give the photos to Kellie and Andy.

Closeup of the digital elements....papers and scalloped border from the Jen Martakis kit and the colorful banner from the Michelle Underwood kit. I liked that the elements weren't baby themed but they are still cheerful and work together well. I added the captions in WordArt using the font "Pristina".

This photo was taken on Uriah's second day...I'm totally smitten!

Funny story~ Uriah looks so much like his daddy when he was a baby....I scanned a photo of Andy taken about an hour after he was born and emailed it to Andy for comparison.
When Andy showed this photo to his mother in law she was wondering why the photo of Uriah was so grainy and such a bad photo. She was shocked to learn that it was Andy and not Uriah (and Uriah was in the room with her at time). He does appear to be a clone of his daddy.

Hopefully I'll get back to making some cards again soon. I finally have a good reason to try my hand at scrapbooking though, so I'll be splitting my crafting time.

 ~ Mark 10:13-16 ~
One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so He could touch and bless them.
But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering Him.
When Jesus saw what was happening, He was angry with His disciples.
He said to them, "Let the children come to Me. Don't stop them!
For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn't receive the Kingdom of God 
like a child will never enter it."
Then He took the children in His arms and placed
His hands on their heads and blessed them.



  1. This is so beautiful nancy! What a fun time you are going to have!

  2. What a fantastic gift to them! It is absolutely beautiful. I did a scrapbook for our first granddaughter and gave it to her on her 1st birthday. We have #2 celebrating tomorrow but Gran didn't do as well for her. She will get hers at Christmas :-)

    Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy - they are so precious - have fun Grandma :-)

  3. What a beautiful little scrapbook... I can imagine that Uriah will be the focus of many more in the coming years. What a delightful way to celebrate. Love how you coloured the blanket to match the background. Hugs to you all

  4. Congrats again! This is a lovely photo album to celebrate your new grandbaby!
