I'm slowly working on my son's baby album and today I have a very cool tutorial to share with you about how to make your own coordinating embellies.

First, here's my Project Life page that I made for his album:

He was 5 weeks old when these pictures were taken. I have hidden journaling behind the pictures, unless you can see it in the front. I used the Sweet Lullabies Sentiment stamp to make all the embellies I used for this page. 

Here's how I did it:

1. I first stamped the sentiments unto cream cardstock.

2. If you have the matching die, you can go ahead and die cut it. I don't have it so I had to fussy cut and use a few circle dies to cut these out. I even cut a pennant and a square one out of them! I didn't color any of the images.

3. I gathered a few that I knew I wanted to use for this page and started layering and embellishing using felt star dies, blue felt booties, brown thread, small buttons and clear epoxy stickers. These are the embellies that I came up with to use in this particular page!

here's a close up so you can see the dimension!

...and here's what I did with the leftovers!

I knew there were too many to use for this page but I needed some baby cards for some friends who are expecting so I made 3 cards with the pre-printed card fronts from the Sweet Lullaby Collection and these embellies! It took me less than an hour to make all 3 cards!!!

Here they are:
