Baby's First Year

Baby's First Year: Step-by-Step Instructions for a 12 x 12 Baby Scrapbook

Taught by Talia Audenart

How come all those new mom books don't say anything about the hundreds of pictures you'll take? Every milestone is captured, uploaded, and emailed, but is it possible to create a personalized scrapbook before your baby starts preschool? Yes!

Join seasoned scrapbooker and mother of two Talia Audenart in this instant-access class, and you'll be on your way to creating a beautiful 12" x 12" scrapbook that showcases your baby's first year. Talia has been published in various crafting and scrapbooking magazine and has worked on various design teams, but it is her love for teaching (ok, and babies) that has brought her to this classroom! Whether your pictures of your baby are the ultrasound kind or the kind that have been in boxes for years, Talia has a solution that is simple, realistic, and completely customizable. The result is a coordinated 36-page album that highlights each month and milestone from the first cry to the first step!

This project is perfect for expectant moms, new moms, old moms, grandmothers, aunties and friends—heck, even grown-up babies can take this class and celebrate that unforgettable first year of life!
