    • Easy Baby Album

      Design by Erica Hernandez

      By using a simple, repeating design, you can turn an inexpensive 4x6" photo album into an easy-to-complete and durable baby book. The cover page is simply layered paper with chipboard accents.

    • Cute Title Page

      Design by Erica Hernandez

      Sticking to a neutral color palette will ensure that the album works for either gender. After the baby is born, print his or her name, date of birth, time of birth, weight, and height on a piece of cardstock. Add a picture of his or her first night.
