Sneak Peek - Adding Pages to Baby Onesie Album and a Super Cute Party Hat ...

About a year ago I made this onesie album.  You can see lots of pictures HERE.  Now I am working on additional pages to add to the album.  This brings up one small issue that could have been avoided ... When I made the album I was not thinking ahead to adding additional pages.  Here is how I did the last page/back cover of the album ...
I added images to the last page and I should have made the last page a cover only.  The back cover is done in paper that matches the front cover, but I can't keep moving the cover back as I add pages because the bed page matches the page in front of it.  Does that make sense?  If I was to do it again I would not add any die cuts to the inside of the back cover.  It would be a cover only.  Then I could simply keep moving the cover back as I added pages and the back of the album would always match the front cover.  The paper I  used has been discontinued or I would just buy more and make another cover.  Hopefully this post will help others not to make the same mistake I did.

I am working on additional pages ... it's just the back cover will no longer match the front cover. :(  I will probably make it a pretty shade of pink.  Actually I just got a DCWV fabric stack and I might try to cut that on the Cricut and make it a fabric cover.

Now why was I making a post about all this ... oh yeah I wanted to show you a sneak peak of one of the pages, lol.  Well really it's just a die cut I made that will go on one of the pages.  I love how it turned out and couldn't wait to get the rest of it done before showing you a small peek.
 This picture does not do it justice, but it really is adorable ... if I do say so myself, lol. ;)  It is a party hat from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge that has been embellished with machine stitching, yarn fibers and a little button to top it off.

The pages I'm working on are for a cupcake themed birthday.  There are going to be lots of cute die cuts for these pages and a super adorable banner.  More to come ... soon.  TFL!   


  1. Sorry to hear about your onesie album troubles:( I know I always stress when I do something then realize I needed to do something else lol. Could you move the ribbons from the first page and make it a regular page with a photo mat and embellies and then just make a front and back page that match and add your additional pages in between??
    I love the album so fun and cute!!

  2. Your Onsie album is adorable, and I can't wait to see more of your birthday project! I love your work! What talent you have!

  3. I remember this adorable album when you posted it. Even cuter today!!! I see about the cover issue, what paper stack was it? Perhaps one of us has and will share, I know I will, if I have it? The hat is so darn stinkin' cute. Your time and thoughts along with your talent is what makes each and every one of your projects is so fabulous. The DETAILS are always special.

  4. I absolutely adore this album. What size is the onesie cut?

  5. Thanks everyone!

    Gramjak ... it is cut at 11 1/2". That's as big as it would cut using 12x12 paper.

    Wende the paper stack if from Martha Stewart and it's called Playground. It's from two or three years ago. If anyone has it and wants to get rid of it ... I would be more than happy to buy the stack or only the pages I need. You can email me at

    Robin ... I did contemplate redoing both the front and back cover. The problem is I gave it as a gift about a year ago. Not sure what she would think if it came back with a completely new look, lol. ;)


Thank you for stopping by. Your support means a lot! Happy crafting and have a wonderful day!
